Age: 17

Family: Mother, Sheri; father, Lenny; and brother, Mitchell

School: Mark is a senior at Mt. Lebanon High School.

Hobbies/Activities: Mark has been involved in student government since sixth grade. He served as president of both the freshman and sophomore class councils. He is a member of Mt. Lebanon's forensics team and qualified for the national tournament by taking first place in the Pittsburgh district for writing and delivering an original speech. He volunteers with the Pittsburgh CLO's New Horizons program, which offers musical and theater training to students and adults with physical or developmental disabilities.

Noteworthy: Klemencic is the latest junior commissioner on the Mt. Lebanon Board of Commissioners, starting with the Jan. 7 meeting. At each commission meeting for one semester, he will report to the commission on issues affecting students and young people of Mt. Lebanon and their activities in the community. He will act as a liaison between the commissioners and students.

Quote: “At the meetings, you start to notice all the little details that people really care about, like traffic, or deer. ... I want to make sure I'm not just focusing on the activities I'm involved in myself. I want to show (the commissioners) how involved all of the classes and schools are, and can be.”
