Regardless of what happens in the voting, we are excited to see next year thrive and be complete.
Here are our hopes and plans for the upcoming school year:
Fulfill an amazing Pow Wow fundraiser, since we were not allowed to host one this year due to COVID.
Larger fundraising opportunity for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society.
Include a sports and extra-curricular activities schedule in our daily announcements.
Restore our Warrior spirit by decorating our school, and promoting Green & Gold Fridays.
Weekly student recognition for academic and honorable achievements, chosen by staff.
Host a Junior & Senior Prom.
Push for a larger community based Homecoming.
Homecoming events for more student involvement.
Weekly Friday Warrior News Cast. (Video announcement and achievements.)
Return Ping-Pong tables in the surge.
This school year, we were robbed of a lot of activities and enjoyment of our usual events because of Covid. Ayla and I will do everything in our power to make all these plans a reality. We would be very excited to serve as your President and Vice President! Warrior Pride! Happy Election!
Devin Van Lue & Ayla Torres
Statement from Kennedi Adkins and Devon Kuhn:
To keep this short, Me (Kennedi Adkins) and Devon Kuhn are running for Student Body President and Vice President for the 2021-2022 school year because we want to change things up. These last two years have been met with unfulfilled expectations and a lack of excitement due to Covid-19. With next year being our last, we want to use every chance we have to squeeze in as much excitement and new traditions as possible. We will work with administration to introduce new events throughout the school year. There are also obvious issues that we and many other people feel need to be addressed throughout the school. However, many students don't know who to go to for real change to happen. We are going to make it easier for any student to express their concerns, needs, and ideas with an anonymous drop box located somewhere in the school. Vote for us so that everyone can have a say in the next year's changes.
Sophomore’s are now allowed to participate and purchase tickets!
