Before we all departed for Spring Break on Friday, April 31, students had the ability to vote for Logan High’s new SBOs for the upcoming school year. Out of all the candidates who ended up running, only nine were picked. Out of those, Klara Ricks was elected to be our new activities and clubs vice president.
In an interview, Ricks mentioned that her biggest goal is to involve as many people as she can. Ricks said, “Activities and clubs are one of the biggest ways to include a wide variety of students, and that’s where the good stuff happens, because you spend time with the people you are surrounded by.”
Ricks hasn’t been involved in student government prior to this year, but she has been involved in many clubs like the Logan Environmental Action Force (LEAF), Drama, and also participates in Musical and Track.

Logan High is home to many bright students and a select few of these are chosen to represent Logan High at the Sterling Scholar competition during their senior year. A Sterling Scholar is a high school senior who is publicly recognized and awarded for the pursuit of excellence in scholarship, leadership and citizenship in the State of Utah. The process of being picked as a Sterling Scholar is time consuming and involves making a portfolio based on the subject area, submitting a resume, and, finally, being selected over all the other candidates by a group of teachers. The competition itself varies from category to category. The musical and dance categories actually have to perform in front of judges, while the science and mathematics candidates go through a second interviewing process and tell the judges about their research and portfolios.
Logan High had three of our seniors win at state level as Sterling Scholars: Emma Cardon and Victoria Stafford won overall in their categories and Raymond Li won second runner up in his category.
"I met a lot of people who I felt were amazing in their categories, absolute geniuses. It was so incredible to see what these other kids were doing."
