The 2017-18 student council members are wrapping up their duties and saying goodbye to Saegertown High School. While they will be remembered for organizing many events, it is time for the 2018-19 seniors to take over the helm. “It has been an honor to serve the Saegertown community this year,” outgoing president Payton Brooks said.
In the fall, Saegertown welcomes Mikayla Balog as student council president, Braeden Kantz as vice president, Sheena Byham as secretary, Carlie Schlosser as treasurer, Kassie Boyd as public relations officer, and Gabe DeYoung as historian.
“I have ideas to help improve the school,” Balog said. “I think I could make a positive change.” Her ideas include ways to boost school spirit and build a positive environment.
This year, the process of electing new members to student council was different. Normally, candidates create different parties and deliver speeches to the student body. Afterward, the student body votes to decide which students will represent them the following school year. However, this year only one group of students ran, resulting in them being named to the positions. Despite the unusual process, the new officers are ready to hit the ground running next year.
