THEY WORK FOR YOU Juniors Ayush Arora and Gaby Ruiz pose as the student body president and vice president elects for next school year. Apart of their campaign this year included advocating for an Extracurricular Outreach Event at the beginning of next school year and bringing back Cookie Thursdays.

Q&A: New president and Vice President discuss plans for upcoming school year

 

Ayush Arora, junior: 

Q: What is the first thing you’d like to tackle as president? 

Besides the usual Student Government things (such as Homecoming), probably launching the Digital Student Feedback Portal from our campaign. Getting it up and running early on will give students more opportunities to provide feedback because it’ll be active for a longer period of time during the school year.

Q: How did you react to hearing the announcement of your election?

I had stood up for the announcement, and although I wasn’t saying a lot, I could feel that my heartrate was slightly elevated and I was kind of shaky. However, when they announced the results of the election, I just said “okay, we’re chillin” and smiled. That may seem a bit underwhelming but I was very thankful that day, and I still am.

Q: What do you want the student body to know about you? 

I really, really like donuts. Also, I’m looking forward to increasing student advocacy next year through our Feedback Portal, in addition to carrying out our other plans. This is especially exciting to me because advocacy is traditionally not as much of a focus within Student Government, but next year, we will change that. Ultimately, I’m thrilled to serve all of you next year, and allowing for increased student advocacy will better help me do so. Oh, I also enjoy biking, driving, and playing the guitar.

Gaby Ruiz, junior: 

Q: What is the first thing you’d like to tackle as vice president? 

I’d like to focus on student involvement in any way we can, like overall allowing a greater atmosphere for change while getting the student body’s input on it and of course school spirit and actually making that fun for everybody

Q: How did you react to hearing the announcement of your election?

I was actually on the bus to go to State Quals for Orchestra when I heard the news, I got a text from all my friends who were so excited for me. I was absolutely thrilled to hear we won, I couldn’t stop smiling!

Q: What do you want the student body to know about you? 

I want the student body to know that I got their backs and will try to do what ever I can to make them happy
