Coordinator’s Updates

Greetings Student Activity Advisor!

My name is Trisha Bemboom and I am the new Coordinator of Student Activities for the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP). As a former teacher, I understand the mix of excitement and anxiety as you return to your school for the start of the 2023-2024 school year. I am excited to help support you in one of the most important roles that you play in your school. Your role as an advisor is among the most rewarding and most difficult out there. However, along the way, I am  committed to providing you and your students with resources, programming and support to make this a year of excellence.

One of the first ways that we can support you as you begin your school year is to register your school as a member of the Minnesota Association of Honor Societies (MAHS) and Minnesota Association of Student Councils (MASC). The networking and resources that are available will allow you to serve your school and students in a dynamic way.

As a member of the organization, you will have access to:

  • Mentorship Meetups
  • The Resource Library filled with best practice ideas, articles and activities
  • Conferences, workshops and scholarship opportunities
  • Support and networking with advisors from across the state and nation
  • Products for your Honor Society including cards, pins, certificates and cords

The Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals, our parent organization, has 96% of the middle and high school principals as members. If cost is a factor, talk to your principal about finding a funding source. Schools that are members consistently rejoin every year because they find value for their students and themselves.

I am excited to meet you and support you as you begin your 2023-2024 school year. Let me know if I can help in any way.
