The 60th Ohio Association Association of Student Councils, (OASC),  kicked-off in grand style Thursday at Mansfield Senior High School.

Over 300 middle and high school students including 50 students from Mansfield middle and Mansfield Senior gathered at the school for the state annual conference.
 

Mansfield Middle School is the first middle school to host the 60 year annual meeting.
 

Jen Lepard, Mansfield Senior High, student council adviser, said this year's theme is "60 Years Over the Rainbow with OASC." She said the theme was taken from the movie the "Wizard of Oz."

Lepard said the theme represents that the kids have gone over the rainbow to become the leaders they are today.

"This conference is important because these kids have met each other before at other events that OASC has hosted. This is time for them to come together and celebrate what they're accomplishments have been for the school year. They will also go through more training to learn how to become a leader," Lepard said. 
 

Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker and Mansfield City Schools Supt. Dan Freund welcomed the students during the celebration in the senior high auditorium.
 

On Friday the students will participate in workshops which will be followed by an evening dinner and dance at the Mid-Ohio Conference Center.
 

The conference will continue Saturday with workshops, an awards assembly and the election of new officers.
