Teen Council

This student driven group provides a forum for our junior/senior high homeschool students to enhance peer relationships while promoting activities and events relevant to teens.

The Teen Council is supported by a panel of parents tasked with keeping events and activities in line with our SHHS mission and guidelines.

The Teen Council members are the following:

Carissa - Sup! I'm Carissa, the president of the council, and I will be a senior in the 2020 school year. I love music in almost every way. I've been playing guitar for 2 years, piano for awhile as well, and I've also started learning the drums. My favorite thing to do (next to playing my guitar) is hanging out with my friends, which is one of the reasons I love being on the council so much. I love working with the other teens on the council, both during our monthly meetings and our events that we plan.

Clarissa - Beinvenue! Welcome! My name is Clarissa. I am 14 and an enthusiastic ninth grader this school year! I really enjoy being a member of the Teen Council and am currently the photographer. I live on a farm out in northeastern Ohio with my parents and am the eldest over four wonderful siblings who drive me bonkers. Other residents of our little domain include two cats, a dog, a barn full of rabbits (who keep multiplying despite all preventions) a gecko, and enough chickens to be constantly underfoot. Some of my favourite activities include climbing my Norway spruce; drawing, reading, writing and, occasionally, sleeping in said spruce; ignoring the guilt of an unweeded garden plot; riding my ATV; taking my chicken on walks; hanging out with friends; and trying to improve my eight years of violin playing, which can be difficult...but still amazing. I love helping in the Teen Council because we have fun and plan cool events for homeschoolers in our community. Being able to plan and create and put into action these events is awesome, and I am so thrilled that I get to be a part of it!

Rachel - Hi! My name is Rachel and I am 18 and a senior. I enjoy photography, worship team (singing), painting, nail art, and listening to music . I have a gecko named Fred and a cat named Ashes. I’m the graphic designer and the photographer for the council. I like being on the council because I enjoy planning events and spending time with my friends.

Gavin - Hello everyone! My name is Gavin George. I am 16 years old, will be a junior in the next school year, and currently hold the position of Treasurer. I have always loved the piano and have played for around 13 years; I also enjoy reading, gaming, and soccer. My favorite aspect of being a part of the Teen Council is working with my friends to create events that our teen community can enjoy.

Kaylee – Hi Everybody! My name is Kaylee and I will be a senior in the 2020 school year. I have three cats named Gidget, Gadget, and Rosie. I am a senior-ranked Girl Scout. My favorite hobbies include: playing the piano, singing, watching Pokemon and Voltron, writing music, solving mysteries, and writing novels. My favorite sport is basketball. I've been attending Spring Hills for almost twelve years and I enjoy helping out in the youth ministry on Sundays and AWANA on Wednesdays. My favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:8. I am both the co-Information Specialist and the Vice President of the Teen Council and I love working with my fellow members and getting to spread the love of Jesus through our community.

Sausha – Hello everyone! My name is Sausha. I am 16 years old and will be a junior this upcoming 2020 school year. My favorite subjects are science, history, and English. I enjoy singing in the choir, acting in drama, playing flute in band and playing piano, anatomy/physiology, writing, and photography. My favorite movie/book series is "Lord Of The Rings" and my favorite Bible verse is 2 Corinthians 4:18. Being on Teen Council has shown me the importance of working together as we make decisions, plan events, and grow together in friendship as we grow in the Lord. I have enjoyed being a secretary on the teen council for two years and working with the other council members to reach out to teens in our community.

Jonathan – Hi, my name is Jonathan Toland. I am in 9th Grade and am 14 years old. Some of my favorite hobbies are playing the piano, petting cats, and playing video games. I am excited about my new roll in the Teen Council, working with the graphic designer and photographer.

I love being on the council because I like planning and organizing events. My favorite foods are pizza, ice cream, and avocados. My favorite subject is science. I think it is fascinating learning new things about the world we live in.

Eli –Hey, my name is Eli, I'm 17 and a Junior in high-school. I enjoy dancing, listening to music, playing video games, watching YouTube, and playing with my dog. I have always had a way of bringing people together, and I hope that by being on the Teen Council, I can bring more people together then ever.
