It’s no secret that our school’s student body officers are arguably the most “popular” kids in school. However, students often forget about the hard work and dedication it takes to be an SBO. First off, let’s talk a little bit about what it takes to become one.
In May, Sophomores and Juniors can submit an application with a transcript to the office or SBO advisor. If their grades are up to standard, they are admitted into a primary election. The top few candidates for each of the eight positions continue onto the final round where each is required to do an interview on the Logan High news and make several posters, an outside display, and a short video. They must also execute a 2-minute speech in front of the student body on election day. Sounds easy, right?
Wrong. These candidates spend countless hours making posters (they take way longer than you’d think—I’m talking from personal experience!) as well as thinking up and filming their creative videos.
