Student Feature: Kyle Smith


Being involved in extracurricular activities can sometimes be a challenging feat, but junior Kyle Smith makes it look easy. Kyle Smith is an active student within North Point and in the community. He is also well known within SGA (Student Government Association). Smith has been involved in SGA for the past two years and he’s already made a name for himself. He wanted to join the association in middle school, but he didn’t really have the chance. But now, having NEST gives him the opportunity to. “I wanted to join SGA because I wanted to be an advocate for students and empower them to become vocal on issues that we all collectively faced. It was mainly about wanting to help others as much as I could,” Smith explains.

Smith is currently running for the Maryland State SMOB (Student Member of the Board). He also applied for the Charles County SMOB, but was not selected. “Last year I wanted to run for county SMOB, but when I mentioned it and submitted my information, North Point had already nominated Da’Juon Washington, so I didn’t have the opportunity to run,” Smith confesses. He is the definition of “go big or go home,” since he didn’t give up on his mission to be a student member of the board and instead chose to run for the state position. “After that, I decided to run for state SMOB, especially since I knew many of the issues that we wanted addressed, as students, started at the state level.” Smith has made it to the final two in the race for state SMOB and he is just waiting for the governor’s selection. He is also conducting an online student survey where he is trying to get students’ thoughts. The link is below.

Smith is not only involved in SGA, but in many other organizations as well. He is a part of the NAACP Youth Council, Mock Trial and orchestra. He is the embodiment of a driven, motivated student, who doesn’t stop when he is faced with a challenge.
