Junior Class Retains President But Switches Vice President

The Junior class elections were held on Wednesday, September 16th, during 8th period. Whitney Brown and Megan Williams ran unopposed for secretary and treasurer, respectively. Both girls kept their speeches short and to the point, staying on the topic of a successful two years in office, as well as pledging to do their best to avoid another “Avonrave” fiasco.
Olivia Alexander and Anders Ove ran for Vice President. Alexander has held the position since 9th grade, and has become “very dedicated to the class” and to the role. Ove went in a different direction, and focused more on “effective communication between the student council and student body”. It seemed that Ove had more audible support from the audience during the speeches.
The presidential candidates were Jacob Grande and Austin Schmigel. Grande was the president last year, and wished to have the chance to “continue representing the class.” Much of his speech was centered on thanking the class for electing his last year. Contrastingly, Schmigel’s speech was less polished but had more constructive content than Grande’s. Schmigel expressed his desire to try and do what is best for the class of 2017.
The results of the elections were announced during the morning announcements on Thursday, September 17th. Despite a few people voting for write-in candidates of their choosing for President, Trevor Gamble-Borsch and Bryce Pappalardo in particular, people that ran for office were elected. Anders Ove was elected Vice President, and Jacob Grande earned another term as president.

Winning the Vice Presidental role over former VP Olivia Alexander, Ove and fellow officer Whitney Brown both are recovering from injuries and used crutches while delivering their speech.
