Campaigns for the Student Council officers have started.

But concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic have put the campaigns and officers election on hold, possibly until after Labor Day. Originally, the speeches were due to be turned in Friday, but now those students running for officer positions have extended time.

People running for Student Council president are Brady Earsom, Dylan Harty and Ava Johnson. Those running for vice president are Amiya Williams and Emilio Harris. People running for treasurer are Vivian Alban and Kelan Smith-Johnson. The one person running for reporter is Kierney Holthaus.

Representatives will be chosen by their homerooms.

This year will be different because of COVID-19. There won’t be as many hands-on projects, and there will be only one representative per homeroom.

Student Council sponsor Cathy Barker said many of the projects will require social distancing. Barker said student council is important because students do service for teachers and other students, and they help out the coimminty.

The Student Council was created to give students a voice at school and for teachers and students to work together, whether in service projects or in finding ways to improve the school.
