NHPAA + CTE/VA Student Leadership Committee

The NHPAA + CTE/VA Student Leadership Committee exists to provide student lead support for the visual/performing arts and career/technical education programs at Newport Harbor High School and enhance the artistic and marketing reach of our departments while representing the best interests of NHPAA + CTE/VA students in branch wide decisions and situations. We regularly partner with fellow student leadership programs (ASB, Link Crew, Bridges, etc.) to advocate for inclusion and celebration of the arts at Newport Harbor High School.

The NHPAA + CTE/VA Student Leadership Committee is composed of up to 20 student leaders who are actively participating in one or more NHPAA or CTE/VA program. The committee is chaired by the NHHS Associated Student Body's VAPA/CTE Commissioner (position filled by NHHS ASB in the spring of the prior school year). The remaining positions are open to any NHPAA students and are filled in August every school year via an interest form (slots are first-come-first served basis). Each department of NHPAA + CTE/VA has at least one representative on the committee. 

The NHPAA + CTE/VA Student Leadership Committee facilitates and/or assists in the maintenance of the following events, publications, and programs:

  • Monthly VAPA + CTE/ROP Newsletter publication (located under the NEWS tab on this site)

  • Upkeep of department respective and branch wide social media pages 

  • Creation of promotional materials for said social media pages and websites including content coverage for events and productions

  • Planning and facilitation of events including promotional welcome events for freshmen/new students, fundraising campaigns, and awards/recognition ceremonies

  • Administrative work and planning for our guest instructor Masterclass Series workshops

These duties are fulfilled during our monthly committee work session meetings and through hours of dedication to difficult and creative tasks.
