Ethan Eblaghie Appointed as Interim Student Commissioner of Baltimore City Public Schools
BALTIMORE – On June 13, 2023, Ethan Eblaghie, a rising senior at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, was appointed as the Interim Student Commissioner of Baltimore City Public Schools. The Associated Student Congress of Baltimore City (ASCBC) appointed Eblaghie to hold the position until the upcoming Fall 2023 election.

"We felt that Ethan would be the most prepared applicant to seamlessly transition into this role because of his prior experience working with the Board, his expertise on City Schools policy, and his genuine passion for the position. We’re excited to welcome Ethan to this position as we work continuously to foster and develop student leadership in Baltimore," says ASCBC members.
