SMOB Candidate - James Obasiolu


Campaign statement:  This year, James Obasiolu is running to be YOUR next SMOB! He’s an Atholton High School junior deeply committed to student safety and wellness, and ensuring that schools are places where students like you can thrive and feel supported. Recognizing that many students aren’t as enthusiastic about attending school, especially after the pandemic, James will emphasize the importance of student resources to improve school environment and make lasting changes that students want. James's overarching goal is to enhance communication between you and the Board so every student, regardless of background, can make their voices heard and shape their educational experience!
