Introducing Junior Councilor Maaya El

Junior Councilor Maaya El

The Borough Council is happy to introduce our new Junior Councilor – Maaya El. Maaya is an 11th grader at Penn Wood High School and was nominated by her School Counselor and highly recommended by the school Principal. Maaya is described as a brilliant student with strong leadership skills. We look forward to working with Maaya and exploring all the ideas and suggestions she puts forth.

The Junior Council Person program provides youth in our community an opportunity to get engaged in borough government and develop leadership skills. It allows borough officials to serve as mentors to students who will be future leaders in our community. It also will provide Yeadon Council a perspective that is seldom seen in government – and that is the ideas and thoughts of our youth in our community. There is one more position open and available for any Yeadon high School student that may be interested. Please click here to apply.
