After following specific steps, like getting their parents approval, collecting 24 supporting signatures of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students and two teacher’s signatures, there were 12 candidates for the Student Body Council (“SC Board”). They ran for the position of President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
On Wednesday, October 4th, the whole Middle School went to the Amphitheater to listen to the candidates’ speeches before voting for the 2017-2018 SC Board! The courageous candidates presented their “Campaign Program” to their Middle School Peers. Standing alone in front of over 158 students was a first for most of the candidates. The speeches were outstanding and full of great ideas for the Middle School. It was a very tight race.
The 2017-2018 SC Board will be comprised of: Barrett Ahn as President, Blanche Powell as Vice-President, Yasmin Amin as Secretary, and Jaya Welters as Treasurer.
The SC Board will meet with the Middle School Administration twice a week in order to organize their Student Council Meetings. Every Wednesdays at 1:15 PM, the SC Board and all the Active Members (all the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade volunteers) will meet to organize solidarity actions, school events, and work on school improvement projects.
