On Monday, May 13, the 2019-2020 Student Council officers were announced. Current sophomores Dayzee Mayfield and Lindsay Tierra will be next year’s co-presidents, along with sophomore Camille Beaulieu as secretary, sophomore Dori Watanabe as public relations, and freshman Lina Shukry as guardian. All of the new officers said that they are looking forward to what next year will bring for the council.

“I hope that we get a lot more involvement and that we make sure the school is happy,” Tierra said. “[I also] hope that we get recognized [more] because most of the time a lot of our work goes unnoticed.”

The position of Co-President is a combination of president and vice president. The job includes overlooking the council, organizing committees, finding chairs for committees, planning meetings, and communicating with sponsors. Mayfield, also a co-president for next year’s council, said that as an officer, they are responsible for encouraging others to grow.

“Being an officer is a chance that not everybody gets, where we are put into a leadership role where people look up to us and take certain responsibility,” Mayfield said “[We] not only encourage ourselves to be better people but encourage others to be better.”

Beaulieu said that she loves being in student council because it allows her to be a role model as well as voice her opinions.

“I like being a good role model for people and I also like having a bit of a say, because usually when I’m not in a higher position I’m too afraid to say anything,” Beaulieu said. “I’m the secretary and I like being organized, so it’s kind of my thing.”

Shukry said that she loves student council because it makes her feel like she has a voice within the school and the events that get planned, making it better for everyone. Shukry said that there is a specific process that one has to go through to become an officer.

“[In order to be an officer] we had to fill out a form about our leadership skills and a bit about us, give a small speech and after the votes were decided, we solidified what position each person had,” Shukry said.

Mayfield said that student council is a great experience, and that it can really bring people in touch with their school and community. Mayfield also said that she is excited for the upcoming school year with the newly elected officers.

“We’re going to have a great officer team and we have a great council, so I’m super excited to see what we’re going to do,” Mayfield said.
