The reason why Sangato wanted to become sophomore class president and what he is going to during his running year:
“It was joke at the beginning but one of my teachers talked me more into doing it. I kinda liked it because I like being a leader for everyone else, it is fun. I want it to be a fun year, no drama, no bullying, no drugs, no bad things to happen to anyone” Sangato Letisi ’20 said.
The reason why Noah wanted to become Junior class president and what he is going to during his running year:
“I want to do as much as I could for my class. A few ideas are: to create a system where my class’s ideas can be heard and used, create a meeting place for all class officers and all the student council, school and class spirit gear, and other ideas” Noah Brown ’19 said.
The reason why Mackenzie wanted to become ASB president and what he is going to during his running year:
“Over the past few years here at South I have loved going here. I have gotten really involved here and have felt such a passion for everything I do and I want other students to be able to feel the same love I have for South. I am going to have several campaigns throughout the year, one is ‘Why I Love South’ campaign, this includes a calibration of all the class officers with ASB officers Mackenzie Stones ’18 said.
