Springville Junior High School has recently elected a new student council. SJHS’s election took place during the end of last school year. The following students were elected: Jacqueline Bradford as president, Betsy Vega as vice president, Maddie Taylor as vice president, and LeGrande Bair as vice president. Mrs Murray,the SJHS student council advisor, said, “They are outgoing, excited, and hard workers.”
SJHS has a student council for many reasons. Maggie Anderson, an eighth-grader at SJHS, said that the student council exists “because we get our input into what we do.” The student council at SJHS does a number of things that helps SJHS be a successful school.
Student council has many responsibilities, some of which are announcements, assemblies, decorating for dances, SJHS’s virtues of the month, and as Jacqueline Bradford said, “Watching out for people.” These responsibilities take preparation and time. According to Mrs. Murray, the student council meets once a week and takes the Service Learning class at SJHS where they discuss and take care of student council business.
Maddie Taylor said that being on student council is “really cool and a lot of fun.” This year be sure to watch for SJHS’s student council and their radiating examples of a true SJHS knight.
