On Friday, the new Student Council president and vice president were announced to replace Haley Ward and Lily Leyden for the 2024-2025 school year. Joaquin Perez and Kathryn Murphy will hold the title next year.

After nearly two weeks of voting, the 2024-2025 Student Council president and vice president have been announced: Joaquin Perez and Kathryn Murphy. Wingspan sat down with the both of them to ask them about next year.

Wingspan: How does it feel to win the elections? What was it like to find out you won?

Joaquin Perez: “To win, it truly means so much to us! We have worked hard these past two weeks and are so lucky to have this opportunity! When we found out that we won I was filled with joy!”

Kathryn Murphy: “It feels great! It was a long two weeks of campaigning but it paid off!”

Wingspan: How did you campaign for the elections?

Perez: “Some of the ways that we campaigned during this election was to visit all organizations on campus so that we could show our support to them! One of our goals is to have more inclusion so through this campaign we wanted to show that!”

Murphy: “Our campaign was based on some of our main goals which are to get student feedback and we want to show support to all of the programs and organizations. So we just wanted to show our support to the programs and we got to talk to several different groups at Liberty!”

Wingspan: What are you looking forward to for next year?

Perez: “Something that we are looking forward to next year is trying new things. We loved everything Haley and Lily did this year and so we want to continue that but also expand and try out new events and ideas!” 

Murphy: “Next year, I am just excited to work alongside Joaquin and execute our goals together. We just want it to be a fun and welcoming year for everyone!”

Wingspan: What are your plans as president and vice president for next year?

Perez: “Some of our plans for next year are to create inclusion on campus! We want every student on campus to feel represented and like they have a place at our school. We also want to have surveys so that students can leave their feedback and give ideas that they have. We also want our school to feel like a fun and an exciting place to be. We want school spirit throughout Liberty.”

Murphy: “We just want to help represent our school together and just make sure everyone is being included and recognized.”

Wingspan: What do you think will be the best part of being Student Council president and vice president next year?

Perez: “The best part will be being able to make our campus proud and make them feel excited to come to school! We want our campus to be filled with excitement and we want everyone on campus to be included. So, being able to achieve these goals will definitely be the best part.”

Murphy: “I am just excited to make our school even better and we want to make Liberty just a great and welcoming place for everyone.”

Wingspan: Anything else you want to add?

Perez: “We are so grateful for this achievement and are so excited for next school year!” 

Murphy: “We just want to say that we couldn’t have done it without all of the support and want to say a big thank you!! We are excited for next year!!”
