Q: What are your plans as a president? What do you want to focus on/improve?
A: There are a lot of really exciting things that Macy (Vice President) and I are looking forward to next year. One of those is just raising school spirit in general. We feel as though the student body isn’t fully engaged and excited about the school and the many opportunities that it provides. We are hoping to increase student support at under-attended sporting events as well as club activities in order to accomplish the goal of getting every student involved here at CG in some capacity. Another idea we are really excited about is getting the community involved in school functions. Outside of sporting events themselves, we see a gap in the connection between the school and the community. We love the support clearly seen at sporting events and would like to see that carry over to both club, and administrative events. Our goal is to see our student body actively engage the community in a variety of activities and events, in order to promote school spirit, as well as encourage and strengthen community within the Center Grove area. These are just a couple things me and Macy have been discussing and are looking forward to in this upcoming school year.
Q: Have you started to think about prom? That is the biggest thing Juniors plan
and take part of.
A: Yes absolutely! Prom is a highly anticipated event for all of us as students here at CG, so we have already been thinking and planning ahead for it. All of our profit from homecoming ticket sales last fall, will go towards renting out the venue for next year’s Prom. We as an officer team have also run coat check at prom the last two years. This has helped us get a feel for the venue as well as observe what changes we might want to make in order to make Prom an enjoyable experience for all students. Through running coat check we have also made some money that will be put back towards paying for Prom as well.
Q: What does your role include?
A: I lead any class meetings we have, as well as meet with fellow officers to discuss any and all StuGo topics and events. At times we may meet with with teachers and administration to discuss upcoming activities or possible ideas for future events. As class president I also try to carry myself in a way that best represents the school.
