STUDENT COUNCIL | By Dalton Clarke
WOW! What a week that was! A week full of heartfelt speeches and efforts made by the three very worthy candidates running to be your 2014-2015 DHS student council co-presidents!
Posters upon posters were, well, posted, to the very walls that we walk every day, and they were a riot! From literally "Running for co-prez", to "Volunteering as tribute", to "Going with the flow", they covered just about every pun out there! Sadly, only two out of the three could be elected, so congratulations to Rachael MacPherson and Stuart Tabor! Here’s a few words from our sweet Stuart Tabor:
"I was super excited when I found out that I was elected. The first thought that came to mind was that I'm happy that DHS will get to experience my ideas next year, and possibly remember those for a number of years to come. Next year, I would love to throw the craziest Mascot Showdown to ever happen in history, as well as put together a "Mr. DHS" pageant/night of hilarious entertainment, brought to you by the finest young gentlemen of DHS. I also want to continue on with the awesome spirit weeks/days our council put on this year, as well as introducing some new ones. Semi-formal dances are always a hit at our school, so I definitely want to push for two dances next year. I’m super excited to represent the student body and I’m positive I will not let them down!!"
What inspiring words from this young man. With words as pure as that, and promises to bold, you cannot help but wonder, is this perfect man real?? Next, we get the pleasure of hearing the quotes from the lovely Rachael MacPherson:
"I feel so fortunate to have been elected. We all ran a great campaign! I'm proud of all three of us, and I can't wait for next year. One of my main goals is going to be to make sure that every student has the chance to get involved. I want to have more spirit weeks and host a fantastic Mascot Showdown. I believe that Stuart, our lovely council and I can also come up with some fun new ideas for a fun new year!!"
That sounds just amazing Rachael. Ladies and gentleman, with a beautiful smile like hers, how could you NOT put faith into her?!
Well, our Co-Presidents have been chosen, and are definitely a worth bunch for the touch to be passed down from out dynamic duo "Mike ‘n Mike". That just about wraps things up, and good luck to Rachael MacPherson and Stuart Tabor for an amazing year in office!
