BCSC students cultivate leadership skills, Supt. Dance wins award at Maryland
Association of Student Councils Convention


Eighty-seven students and advisors from across the county represented Baltimore County Public Schools at the annual Maryland Association of Student Councils (MASC) Convention. The convention, in Ocean City, provided student leaders an opportunity to network and collaborate with their peers from across the state.

Baltimore County Student Councils (BCSC) students and advisors presented 10 workshops varying in topics from helpful social networking strategies and apps for teaching and learning to teambuilding and peer communications.

“The MASC Convention provides student leaders with an opportunity to hone their skills and share in learning with their peers,” said Nora Murray, the project specialist who oversees BCSC. “It is one of my favorite events of the year. Students leave feeling accomplished and really bond with each other while they are there.”

On the last night of the convention, MASC held an awards ceremony where advisors and leaders were honored for their contributions to the organization. Superintendent S. Dallas Dance was given the “Friend of MASC Award” for his dedication to open communication with students as well as his advocacy for student leadership. He was nominated by BCSC.

“I've received numerous awards in my life, but this award is among the most humbling,” Dance said.
