Maja Durkovic, a Grade 11 student at Eastern Technical High School, will be sworn in as president  of the Maryland Association of Students Councils (MASC) during its May 21st executive board meeting.

We are so proud of Maja  for being elected to these influential state level positions,” said Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams. “We encourage BCPS students to explore and pursue student leadership opportunities. We know that every student leadership experience empowers our students and strengthens their public speaking and management skills. This is National Student Leadership Week (April 24 – 30, 2022), and throughout our school system, students are involved with Baltimore County Student Councils and Baltimore County Junior Councils and are leading organizations at their schools and in their communities.”

Durkovic, a student in Eastern Tech’s Law & Public Policy Program, currently serves as MASC chief of staff, Maryland Youth Advisory Council executive board member, Baltimore County Student Councils chief of staff, and cofounder and chair of Maryland High School Democrats, Eastern Tech chapter. A participant in the BCPS Outstanding Young Women Leaders Program, Durkovic is also a member of the National Honor Society and the honor societies for English, music, science, social studies, and Spanish.

In a personal statement, Durkovic wrote, “Throughout two and a half years of a virtual world, shrouded by uncertainty and disconnect, student leadership has allowed me to form invaluable relationships that I would never have experienced elsewhere. MASC is home to passionate, driven student leaders – ones who take on change making with pride, doing so while instilling unparalleled dignity in the youth voice.”
