The Student Senate draws upon the youth of the region to foster daring and innovative ideas to help rejuvenate, sustain, and reinvent our communities. KVEC believes that there is no challenge facing our region that cannot be solved by the creative minds of our youth and adults.
The mission of the KVEC Student Senate is to empower the student bodies of the schools in the region by serving as a liaison between the students and faculty, staff, alumni, and administration; by seeking to enhance the student experience by supporting and/or drafting policy that promotes student interests, needs, and welfare; by working with community members to strengthen the bond between school and community; and by helping promote economic opportunities within the region.
The Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative’s Regional Student Senate is comprised of two students from each of our member district’s High Schools. Each school is awarded a $2500 grant for use by the student senators to identify and solve a challenge facing their school. They serve to represent their student body to their local leaders and to the region. Student Senate schools are also eligible to apply for a $10,000 KVEC Community Challenge grant.
