The San Mateo County Board of Education's first Youth Liaison, Sydney Muffareh, shared her excitement for the year ahead at the November 6 County Board of Education meeting. Sydney was selected from among members of the San Mateo County Youth Commission, which is an advisory commission to the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors.

A senior at San Mateo Union High School District's Mills High School, Sydney is involved in her school and aspires to go into education. As the San Mateo County Youth Commissioner Liaison to the County Board of Education, she will be attending several board meetings this school year to provide youth voice and perspective. Congratulations, Sydney!
