Student Council members enjoy lunch at Theo's Coney Island Restaurant.
Cambridge High School Student Council recently hosted a Student Council Exchange where student council members from several high schools met for a day of collaboration, leadership, and friendship. The purpose of the day-long meeting was to form relationships and connections with neighboring schools and to discuss ideas and activities that take place at each school.
“We have participated in similar events in the past, but those are no longer available,” CHS student council advisor Sadie Williams said. “So we decided to start our own and include some neighboring schools.”
Participants included student council members from Meadowbrook, John Glenn, Harrison Central, and Union Local in addition to Cambridge.

“It is an opportunity for our students to build friendships with students from other schools,” Williams added. “We had a collaboration time where the students could share their ideas on homecoming, fundraisers, and other activities. The goal is to learn something new to try at their own schools.”
The day started at Cambridge High School with hot chocolate and donuts followed by an icebreaker activity and then the collaboration time. Students then shared lunch at Theo’s Restaurant and heard from local leader Mitch Howell, a financial advisor at Edward Jones. The group then toured the Cambridge Dickens Village.
