WHO ARE WE
The Montgomery County Regional Student Government Association, or MCR for short, is MoCo’s county-wide student leadership organization. MCR seeks to represent the views and ideas of all MCPS high school students.
On behalf of its constituents, MCR advocates for a variety of student-related policy before the Board of Education and County Council. MCR also supports every school’s SGA and lobbies for relevant bills in the Maryland Legislature.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
SHAIREE ARORA, MCR PRESIDENT
"I love MCR because it is such a unique experience where you can be at the forefront of advocating for real solutions to improve MCPS while being surrounded by other passionate student leaders from across the county. It's a place where you meet so many amazing students with such different backgrounds, create a real core group of friends who become your family, and work with each other to advocate for the issues you believe in. MCR has been an experience that I know I'll never forget. "
MS. SHELLA CHERRY, MCR ADVISOR
"I place incredible value on the thoughts and opinions of our student leaders. MCR is a special organization where the young adults strive to advocate for their peers, improve the youth experience, and develop leadership in others. Serving as the advisor of MCR has been one of the best experiences of my 24 year career. I am a lifelong learner and have also developed new skills as a result of working with the student leaders of MCR and across Montgomery County."
HANA O'LOONEY, MCPS SMOB
"MCR introduced me to the diversity of Montgomery County: being able to step outside the walls of my own school and hear about the experiences of students across our 500-square mile county, my world and perspective on educational equity were broadened. Not only did the community inspire me, MCR introduced me to skills like testifying, lobbying, and researching public policy that I know will stick with me for a lifetime."
