In an effort to familiarize citizens with the teen board members, the Review asked the teens questions and will publish their replies over the next few weeks.

Provost said he was most interested in working with the TAB and has firsthand experience using public transportation.

“I saw the advertisement in the Lake Oswego Review,” he said. “At the time, I was commuting to my summer civil engineering internship at Mead & Hunt, oftentimes by public transit or bicycle.

“I thought being a youth member would be a good way to get involved. I would be able to learn from others and voice my opinions to better Lake Oswego’s transportation infrastructure.”

Provost is considering pursuing a career as a civil engineer and said he would learn a lot regarding politics and the process involved in creating change by being involved as a youth advisory board member.

“I hope to learn about transportation within the city, participate in the process of negotiating solutions to controversial issues and learn about being on a board,” he said. “I’m open to learning new information to further define what I want to do in life.”

Following graduation in June, Provost plans to travel.

“Next summer I plan to backpack through Europe with a friend. Then, I’m planning to attend PCC and work part time for a year. Then, I will transfer to Oregon State University in the fall of 2014,” he said.
