At the Bartlett Pubic Library District's Board Meeting on Monday, Sept. 17, the trustees appointed Andrew Sangar as the new Student Advisory Trustee (SAT).

The criteria for an eligible SAT is as follows:

- Must be in grades 9 -- 12

- Must be a BPLD cardholder

- Must be a Teen Advisory Board (TAB) Member

Not only has Sangar met those qualifications, he is also a member of the Cross Country, Track & Field and Basketball teams. He is also a member of the Health Occupations Club and the South Asian Student Association.

"I can provide organization and responsibility," Sangar answered about what he could contribute as the SAT. "I can be a voice for the Teen Advisory Board at the Board Meetings."

Trustees took turns asking Sangar questions, such as what his greatest memories of the Library were, would he be able to commit the time and effort into the position that it requires, how would he be an effective SAT, etc.

"He will do a wonderful job as the Student Advisory Trustee," said Youth & Teen Services Manager Ruth Anne Mielke.

Sangar's SAT term begins in October and runs from October 1, 2018 -- August 1, 2019. He will be a non-voting position on the Library Board and will not be allowed to attend executive sessions. He will report on items from TAB meetings to the trustees, and then he will relay the happenings of Board Meetings to TAB members.
