Student Council will start the interview process for the 2017-18 school year starting Monday during all lunches and will continue throughout the week.

“We are taking into account how they do their interview, what they write on their application, we get feedback from teachers that they list- and that’s really valuable,” StuCo sponsor Jordan Benton said. “We sit down with current AP’s and get their feedback as well because they know their specific alpha of students and so all of that is taken into account when we decide who gets into the class.”

Students will be chosen on what they can bring to the table with their own personal diversity.

“We are looking for people involved in different things across the school,” Benton. “We want this group to be diverse, to kind of match our diverse population- and we can have leaders from across the school from different areas whether it is band, Red Rhythm, orchestra, if they started another club on campus- we want all of those different people represented in student council.”

Current StuCo president Grant Buss said they will be looking for students who have their eyes set on not only their goals, but on the success of everyone on campus and embracing differences.

“I’m looking for diversity and passion,” Buss said. “I want to see people that do what they love to do, I want to see people that love to work hard- that have great work ethics. And I want to see people who like to widen their wings and kind of take in anybody who is different or is looking forward to differences.”
