Elias Erickson, President
I was born in Sitka and have lived here my entire life. My family consists of my parents, Gayle and Diana, my brothers, Daniel and David, my two sisters, Nicole and Abi, and myself. There is no place in the world like Sitka. Sitka's uncomparable beauty, community, and excellent public schools makes it an incredible place to grow up, and I have loved every day of it. When I am not busy with the everyday things of life, I enjoy playing music, being outside on the beach, and spending time with my friends and family.
In the 2016/2017 school year, I served as the Sitka High School student representative to the School Board. In that position, I gained invaluable experience that created in me a desire to do whatever I can to assist in making Sitka's public education the best it can be. As a senior in high school, I will bring a unique and advantageous perspective to School Board discussions and decisions. As a member of the Sitka community, I aim to be approachable and understanding to the issues and concerns any may bring to my attention. Education is truly the lifeblood to a thriving community, and I will do my best everyday to make sure our public schools are excellent.
