As the school year comes to a close, clubs throughout the school are preparing for the next year. Most will say goodbye to graduating officers and welcome new leaders. Student Council has held their elections and arranged for a changing of the guard.
Current President Logan Hoover (12) is graduating after two years heading the council and is being replaced by current Vice President Kayla Azaroff (11).
Hoover is leaving satisfied and confident of the council’s future success. Though he remains frustrated with failures like the flop of tailgating before football games and the recent closing of the school store in its current form, he said that he hopes he left a better council. In particular, he feels he improved the communication with the administration. “I feel like I have extended that bridge as far as I could get it,” Hoover said. Moving forwards, the council should be able to capitalize on this connection, “because Kayla knows how to fight for herself and her battles for the student body.”
Azaroff is eager to take on that relationship and is already creating goals for the year ahead. To facilitate communication between the student body and the administration, she hopes to coordinate monthly meetings where the administration can speak with club leaders. Azaroff remains interested in having the always elusive third school dance and expanding community service by the council.
The council filled other seats as well: Ethan Lown (10) was elected vice president, Joe Szymanski (11) will serve as treasurer, Kristen McEvoy (10) will be corresponding secretary, and Megan Rider (10) will be recording secretary.
