Student Body Officer elections are nothing less than a week of competitive campaigning and stress. Not only are the elected students excited for the opportunities that come along with being an officer, but the entire student body will be affected by those elected through SBO-led activities such as Beach Week and Homecoming Week.
This year’s election, in almost every category, was nail-biting close due to the strong participants.
Logan High’s president for the centennial year will be returning SBO Alex Lambert. He has exciting plans for the future and is very appreciative that people decided to “join the flock.”
“We have an incredible opportunity to participate in the 100-year celebration of Logan High School, and I expect next year’s activities to be memorably themed to that milestone. I want to ensure that the activities will be something special to be a part of, ” said Lambert.
The newly elected Vice President is Hunter Goring, also a returning SBO. With experience and excitement, he is ready to take on the new year as VP. He may be gluten free, but he is definitely not free of humor and inclusiveness.
“I’m really excited that we all come from different parts of the school,” Goring said of the new group he gets to work with. “I think with all of our lovely backgrounds we will be able to make the 100th year of Logan High the best one yet!”
The Secretary position was filled by Josh Parkinson. Known as “Jonny’s Brother” and the best looking Hillary Clinton yet, he is ready to make a name for Logan High, and possibly himself too while he is at it.
“I plan on making LHS stand out by both continuing the best traditions and introducing new, long lasting ones,” Parkinson said.
Sharon Wallace was elected to take charge of the Historian position. With a lot of school involvement and pride under her belt, she can’t wait to capture some the of the best moments throughout the 100th year of LHS. She will be making one of the most memorable scrapbook pages in the history of the school.
“I’m excited about making memories with all the students and capturing all of the memories so everyone can remember them forever. I’m also excited about being a part of the 100th class, and helping to make it a good time!” said Wallace.
A new position was implemented this year. Due to split votes between the even amount of Officers the last few years and lacks of both genders being represented in the past, the Senior Executive position was divided into two positions: a Boy’s Senior Executive and Girl’s Senior Executive.
The Girl’s Senior Executive position has been filled by Bethany Olsen. A new member to the student government system, she could not be more excited.
“I’m excited to plan Homecoming Week,” Olsen said. “It’s my favorite week of the year.”
Hubert Kim took hold of the Boy’s Senior Executive position. With fantastic artistic skills and a witty humor, he is ready to help Logan High excell next year.
“I want my focus to be on providing the best possible high school experience for all of us, by helping us all to get involved, make memories, and feel welcomed and accepted for who we are here,” said Kim about his biggest goal for next year.
The last three positions are filled by incoming juniors for the Junior Executive positions. An interesting election this year left the spots taken by three females, which has not happened for many years here at Logan.
The first Junior Executive is Cambrie Anderson. She has been involved with student government since she was a freshman, and she is ready to put her experience to work. Her friendly personality will allow for many to feel included this upcoming year.
“I can’t wait to celebrate the history of Logan High with our student body this 100th anniversary,” said Anderson regarding what she is most excited for.
The next Junior Exec. is Elizabeth Needham, an involved and well-rounded student who looks forward to sharing happiness at LHS.
“I am looking forward to not just meeting new people, but making them my friends and getting everyone involved with activities so they can love Logan High as much as I do,” Needham stated. “I can’t wait to have an amazing year!”
The final Junior Exec. is Rose Coppin. With a very loving personality, a fantastic example for school spirit and rad dance moves, she can’t wait to make an impact next year.
“I’m excited to have the school as my second home to plan out way fun events for LHS, while getting to work with some awesome friends,” said Coppin.
The Student Body Officers of this year are sad to be ending their careers as SBOs but are excited for the new ones to fill their spots and carry on lasting legacies. Current president Matthew Fife said, “They are like a fresh batch of #homemade cookies. By that I mean they’re a lot better than the old stale ones (me).”
The advisor, Sonia Cardena, will continue to be head of the SBOs next year. This year was her first year, and she looks forward to having the experience for next year’s activities. Cardena said, “I will definitely miss the current SBOs. However, I am pumped about working with the incoming SBOs.”
These nine SBOs look forward to serving and making the school year fun for everyone next year. They are excited to get to work with the new principal, Kenneth Auld, and can’t wait to celebrate the centennial year at Logan High.
