An Old Mill High School student has been selected as a finalist for a position on the Anne Arundel County Board of Education.
Nick Lefavor, who will be a senior during the 2012-13 school year, is one of three candidates downselected from eight applicants. He underwent a series of interviews from a three-member panel and will participate in a Candidates Night on Feb. 29.
Gov. Martin O'Malley will ultimately appoint the board member following a vote by the General Assembly of the Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils on March 26.
The student board position is currently occupied by Jillian Buck of South River High School. The position is believed to be the only one in the country to carry full voting rights.
Lefavor is an honor roll student at Old Mill and a member of the soccer and track teams.
