Posted on 01/27/2021

The Board of Education for Waukegan Community Unit School District # 60 welcomed Waukegan High School Junior Isam Hussaini as its newest Student Board Member during its January 26 meeting.


Isam replaces Van Weddle, who completed his yearlong term as the district’s third student board member. Isam’s term as a non-voting member will run through January 2022.


Isam is a student at the WHS-Washington Campus, where he is junior secretary

of National Honors Society, a JROTC Cadet Captain, as well as a member of the Principal's Advisory Council and Waukegan 2 College. Outside of school, Isam often volunteers at his local mosque.


Prior to attending Waukegan High School, Isam attended Glenwood Elementary School and Robert Abbott Middle School.


Some of Isam’s primary goals as Student Board Member are to provide students different mental health resources, improve teacher-student relationships, as well as to find new ways to keep students engaged in their online learning. He wants students to feel they can confide in him with any issue they have free of judgment.


As a Student Board Member, Isam will be given time on each School Board agenda to speak regarding student concerns, curriculum, and activities. He will act as a liaison between the students and school board, gather student concerns and celebrations in a variety of ways, and help communicate important information from the School Board to students.
