We congratulate: Student rep's approach to role on school board

Austin Crowe is the newest member of the Shelby County School Board, and we like his moxie.

Mr. Crowe, a junior at Shelby County High School, took over the student delegate’s seat at the last board meeting, and he made a wonderful impact with his curiosity and his candor.

In a world in which too many teenagers sit too quietly while life absorbs them, Mr. Crowe is setting a great example for how students can be part not only of policy in their schools but of the overall policy of the community.

We don’t expect Mr. Crowe to have all the answers or even all the questions, but we beseech him to continue to speak up and be heard.

And we commend the adults around him for listening.
