We had a fantastic turnout of SGA candidates who wanted to serve their school community. What a wonderful display of courage and initiative. I am always very impressed, not by the speeches or campaigns, but by the good-hearted nature behind the motivation of young people wanting to serve.
The candidates were asked to fill out an application, obtain faculty endorsements, and deliver a speech in front of their Middle School peers at assembly. Posters, buttons, stickers, plenty of treats, and messages of unity highlighted many of the campaigns.

What does this mean?
The president is responsible for delivering results for the student body. They are the face of the student body, as well as the voice of the student body.
The vice president is the coordinator for the representatives. The Vice President assumes the responsibilities of the President if or when they are not available.
The secretary is responsible for communication via email, announcement posts, and documenting notes from meetings
The historian is responsible for archival records, pictures, and yearbook coordination.
It is my hope that the SGA becomes more than just a planning committee for socials or fundraisers. My hope is that the SGA may offer opportunities of community service and encourage more on-campus participation and support for our Middle School athletes and athletic programs, in addition to setting a legislative agenda for improving the culture of the middle school.
We will see where the SGA takes our community this year. This group of dedicated and creative young leaders is sure to make an impact.
