Last week, St. Michael students voted on the 2021-22 student council representatives and executive board.
The 2021-22 student body president will be Julia Clark and the student body vice president will be James Balart. Other executive senior members include Madeline DeVries as parliamentarian, Lindsey Hunt as secretary, Margaret Perrien as treasurer, Sarah Gil as historian and Nick Johnson as chaplain.
Executive president Julia Clark is a veteran student council member, having served as her class president for the past three years. Next year, she says that she is hoping to get more students involved with school spirit through a variety of activities. “I have always valued these leadership positions and I am looking forward to serving my school as student body president,” she shares. “I want to encourage all students to become involved in school activities and school spirit next year. I think it is important to see everyone enjoy their high school years as a Warrior whether it is at a football game or a dance, or during dress up days and pep rallies.”
Executive student body vice president James Balart says he hopes to help make next year fun for both students and faculty. “I ran for this position because I wanted to give back to my school. I have grown so much from being here, I hope to help share that feeling with everyone and make next year truly memorable for students and faculty too,” he says.
Rising senior class president Mindy Jones is serving as her first year on student council but says that it is a great opportunity to work on leadership skills and a great way to foster school spirit. “I can not wait to lead my fellow students into a new school year since these past couple years have been a challenge,” she says. “As a senior next year I want to make the most of my time here and plan to do what I can to create school spirit and fun activities.”
Rising sophomore and class vice president Alexander Vidaurre has been involved with student council since he was in 7th grade at St. Thomas More. “Next year, I really hope student council plays a big role in certain school events such as dances and pep rallies. It is important to me to have this opportunity to make a difference and to be involved in my school,” he says.
Rising junior and class vice president Meredith Taliaferro says that she is excited to offer her service to St. Michael High School through her role on student council. “This school welcomed me with open arms,” she shares. “I am most looking forward to welcoming other new students and supporting the entire student body. As a part of student council, I hope my leadership encourages more school involvement across all the grades. I would also like to organize extracurricular events such as a field day and additional mentorship opportunities from the upperclassmen with our younger students.”
Class officers for incoming freshman will be voted on in the fall of 2021.
