We are thrilled at the announcement today that Manual junior Amir Sykes has been named to the Illinois State Board of Education’s 2019-20 Student Advisory Council!

Amir is one of just 21 students throughout the entire state to join this prestigious group, and the only one from the area.

Last year, the Student Advisory Council provided input on topics such as equity, mental health, competency-based education, college and career readiness, special education, and technology in the classroom.

Please join us in congratulating Amir for his achievement and for being an outstanding representative of Manual and Peoria Public Schools!
