WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AS STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT?

“Some of my goals as Student Body President are just further engaging the students of Liberty there are so many sports and fine arts clubs and other organizations that go unnoticed and my biggest goal is to just get feedback from all those clubs first before starting to take steps I have other plans like hosting meet and greets to meet leaders of other clubs just to see what they want to see from StuCo because my main goal is to get more involvement into other clubs that you don’t see involvement in or they go unnoticed so I think my biggest thing is I really want to get feedback from these other clubs and see what they’d like to see from us that way we can then put that plan into place one of the other things I thought of is definitely since there are so many students in stuco maybe assigning 1 or 2 students to a club or two that way they can once a month attend a meeting or something like that so that way we can see what the club has going on or what the sport has going on whatever it may be fine arts and that way we can really get to know the members of the club and get StuCo more involved in the student body.”

 

 

WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM YOUR OTHER CANDIDATE?

“So growing up I was always exposed to leaders with both my parents being really involved with the community that has really just given me a good example as to what a strong leader is someone who leads by example and encourages their peers rather than putting them down or just saying their going to do something and following through with it so just being around different leaders in my life has really been influential and I think I’ve definitely grown as a leader in that way which has made me stronger and more able to work with others.”

 

 

WHAT WOULD HELP YOU FOSTER SCHOOL SPIRIT?

“I think like what I said earlier, like getting more involvement and feedback from different organizations to see what they would like to see from us and definitely increasing spirit days. So leading by example means getting student involvement and make everyone as comfortable as possible so sending out forms seeing what kind of things student want to see as spirit themes that way kids are willing to dress up at football games and funding for that so that way we will be able to diversify our spirit and get more people involved and just getting people as comfortable as possible and I want to build as many relationships as I can so just doing it in that way to try and build school spirit to is going to be a big thing.”

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AS STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT?

“So my goals as student body president is that I really want to make school spirit like more inclusive and have the students more involved with that so for like football games I don’t want people just going to only football games, I want basketball games too that’s a big thing to work on also volleyball games, softball games and school events in general I want more participation in that and how I plan on doing that is I really want to make advertising change and different for the next year so I’m thinking about having more productive Instagram panels or like Twitter postings for different classes kinda like how colleges do it and I kinda wanna have it so different student classes can vote on different spirit things I’m changing that for next year I want student involved with being able to provide ideas and feedback with that and also my big goal is that I want everybody to feel included when they’re at these games so for like band I really want themes that band can vote and participate on kinda like cheer on pink out days they have either pink uniforms I want the band to have things that they can participate in I’m not sure if they can wear leis or like zebra print I know they have probably rules for what they are allowed to wear but I want it to be that band can also participates in themes and also our drill team so our school looks more uniform and getting funding for that towards that alot im really working on school spirit and having everybody more connected.”

WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM YOUR OTHER CANDIDATE?

“I think personally my personality I’m very vocal and outgoing and like to make new connections with a lot of people I’m also very talkative so I hear things I like to hear peoples opinion on a lot of things and I’m very open to new ideas I’m not going to just incorporate my own ideas, which I think is important because being able to communicate with other people helps get ideas across and word of mouth if I hear a complaint I can work to change it, yeah I just think my personality because I’m friendly and it helps me form relationships and hears what they want.”

WHAT WOULD HELP YOU FOSTER SCHOOL SPIRIT?

“I would want a lot of funding go towards  our  school spirit events like I said earlier funding towards cowbells boomwhackers and T-shirts for people to wear to be able to show that at the games but outside the games for school spirit I really want to work on connecting everyone by not just having only sports be posted in the rotunda on the stairwell, I want all events to be appreciated to where people can not feel afraid to show school spirit I also want the seniors to be really heavily incorporated on participating on events I know I can get my friends starting to be more involved in the school events and also have them promote school spirit and also during lunch I would like for people from different organizations and clubs and stuffs to come talk about their clubs and kinda get more students involvement to go around in the school because I know that some clubs and organizations are not as highlighted as other clubs and organizations so I want everyone to know and be aware of what’s going on and throughout the school.”
