As I reflect on this past year, I want to start off by saying that I'm honored to have been given this opportunity to serve as the Student Council president for the past year and to have worked with the team of such wonderful people: Anna Comstock, McKenna Blinman, and Kalila Jones. I hope that in the time that we have held these positions, your lives as students in the Friends’ Central community have been as enjoyable as possible. I am happy to say that we were able to in some way implement most, if not all, of the points I had in my platform and speech from last year.
First, we led the initiative to have more fun and inclusive assemblies, as well as use the extra blocks that we had this year in order to open up more time to clubs and other groups to share on the amazing work that they do around campus.
Second, we organized more enjoyable and community-oriented events in order to raise school spirit while showcasing the amazing talent that we have as a student body that is not always shown.
Third, we were able to work more closely with the faculty, staff, and administration in order to voice the student issues that were brought to us in the community and propose solutions that were either implemented this year or hopefully will be implemented in the future.
Lastly, I want thank all of the people who have helped me to accomplish these goals, starting with all of the people who participated in our events and assemblies. I would also like to thank the teachers and administration who I met with frequently in order to organize what we have been able to. Additionally, I want to thank CJ Keller and the stage crew who worked endlessly behind the scenes in all of our events and assemblies. Most of all, I want to thank the members of student council who met with me every week and dedicated their time to helping me make this the most successful year that I could.
Thank you everyone,
