Elections Sweep Sewanhaka
Over the past two weeks Sewanhaka High School has been swept up in election fever. Beginning on March 17th Sewanhaka High School students began campaigning for positions on the Student Council and their respective grade’s Class Board. Over 40 students ran for positions across the six grades. On Wednesday, March 19th the students were visited by local councilman Rich Ambrosino, who spoke to the students about the importance of campaigning and representing and understanding the people they want to represent.
As part of the campaign process, all students were encouraged to design posters and flyers to be hung up throughout the hallways of the school. Many students go into the creative spirit, designing posters that reflected their beliefs and ideas for Sewanhaka.
During the week of March 24th, students in the Social Studies classes were brought down to the main lobby, where the school had set up real voting machines. The students each took a turn in the booth, getting a chance to make their voice heard at Sewanhaka.
On behalf of the Sewanhaka High School staff and faculty, congratulations to the winners, including next year’s student council members, President Andreas Pavlou, Vice President Sue Chen, Secretary Bryce Lawson and Treasurer Breanna Washington.
