Kingsley, PA (April 6, 2022)—For its exemplary record of leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and community, the Mountain View student council has been recognized as a 2022 National Gold Council of Excellence by the National of Student Council (NatStuCo).

“Receiving a National Gold Council of Excellence Award shows the utmost dedication a school’s students, leaders, and staff have made to making their community a better place,” said NASSP CEO Ronn Nozoe. “Mountain View has gone above and beyond in elevating student voice to ensure they are establishing a positive climate and culture, as well as fostering academic and social growth for all.”
"I'm so proud of our council. We work hard and try to lead by example. We may be a small council, but we are dedicated and I'm happy that we were able to receive this recognition again." Mountain View Council President Rebecca Plomchok.
To meet the requirements for the National Gold Council of Excellence Award, a student council must meet a variety of criteria. In addition to basic requirements such as a written constitution, regular meetings, a democratic election process, the councils have demonstrated successful sponsorship and participation in activities such as leadership development and service to the school and community.
