A High-Achieving Collierville Teenager Brings Student View to the Local School Board

Evan Craft carries a full load of advanced courses at Collierville High School, captains the Knowledge Bowl team and leads the school’s international club.

In January, the 18-year-old added another responsibility — serving as the first-ever student liaison to Collierville’s recently formed school board.

He’s a nonvoting member and attends school board meetings, sitting at a table reserved for staff. The senior said the experience has made him realize how adults dedicate their lives to run a school system. “It’s great to see people put so much time in for you,” said Craft, who is thin, wears glasses and smiles often.
