Student Council members have been campaigning for leadership positions for the past two weeks. Starting today, students can vote for the new class officers through Naviance, until Apr. 13.

“Our goal is to connect students with different aspects of the school,” StuCo sponsor Adam Babich said. “We have fundraising opportunities, that allow us to put on events like Trunk-or-Treat and the Hallway Decorating Contest.”

StuCo’s role in past years has been to plan and carry out events such as Homecoming and Prom. Student Body President, senior Luke Williamson, has been trying to steer the organization into a more “campus focused program.”

“Everybody is welcome at our biweekly meetings,” Williamson said. “Next year, members will be required to complete hours to maintain their membership, and we really want these volunteer hours to come from school run organizations and events.”

The officers and Babich have been working to completely revamp membership rules and goals of the club. Starting next year, there will be the implementation of an Executive Board, replacing the Student Body positions. The sophomores, juniors, and seniors will still maintain the Vice President and President positions, and freshman will even be able to run for office, beginning second semester. The club has scrapped their previous handbook and bylaws, veering away from solely planning events, to focusing on listening to student concerns and ideas.

“I want to see StuCo continue to operate as effectively as it can and follow the processes laid out in our bylaws,” sophomore candidate Rehm Maham said. “When I helped to rewrite the bylaws, we made sure they would be as organized as possible to allow us to do the most good for the school.”
