      School dances are a quintessential part of every student’s “High School Experience.” But behind every awkward slow song and loud dancing circle at homecoming, prom, or winter formal, there is a group of class officers working hard to make it happen. The class officers are very important to the student body because they fundraise for and organize all the fun activities that students can enjoy throughout the year.

       During the last week of September, class elections were held recently to decide who would be president, vice president, treasurer and secretary for each class. While every class had elections this year, a significant number of candidates ran unopposed.

       Senior class officers are Emily Jordan as President, Alex Lycette as Vice President, Emma Herceg as Secretary, Jenna Grober as Treasurer, and Paige Zamichieli as Fundraising Coordinator.

       Junior class officers are Cameron Hines as President, Jack Ziets as Vice President, Michael Woods as Treasurer, and Erica Wang as Secretary.

Sophomore class officers are John Kachurak as President, Bryson Davis as Vice President, Andrea Kieper as Treasurer, and Andrea Prince as Secretary.

       Freshman class officers as Karansher Sidhu as President, Nolan Sargent as Vice President, Cohen Resch as Treasurer, and Evelyn Wang as Secretary.

       Throughout the four years of high school, students participate in many activities that are sponsored by the class officers. Each grade’s class officer takes on different events and roles in the school.

       The senior class officers focus on planning graduation as well coordinating a senior gift and a senior trip. They also must fundraise so they plan on doing a dodgeball tournament because of the success it brought last year.

       The main duty of the junior class is prom. With their location and date finalized, the class officers will be working with Prom Committee to decide on a theme and begin decorating plans, in addition to fundraise for the event.

       The sophomore and freshman class officers are in charge of picking a place for their junior prom as well as beginning fundraising.

ow where we sell Krispy Kreme donuts for a dollar which we plan on doing once a month,” sophomore vice president Bryson Davis said.

       In addition to prom, class officers plan many other activities. Last year, the 2020 class officers and the 2021 class officers collaborated for the first time on a winter “Sadie Hawkins” dance. They plan on hosting another winter formal this year with the hope of growing and improving the dance.

       By coordinating with their respective faculty advisors and members of the administration, the class officers also have a say in what happens during the school year.

       “I want to be able to have some kind of a say in how our class [functions]” senior secretary Emma Herceg said. “I think it is important that we all have a better school spirit and I wanna try and get that up.”

       As representatives of their peers, it is also important for the class officers to communicate with their classmates and fight for what the student body wants.

       “I get to talk to kids and know their decisions first hand,” sophomore secretary Andrea Prince said. “I can be like ‘Hey, these are what the kids want’ and the president and vice president act upon that.”

       The newly elected class officials hope to start their school year by making the school more inclusive and build a sense of community.

       Now that the officers have been chosen, it is time to find out what they actually do during the year.

       Throughout high school, there are many activities that the student body participates in that is sponsored by the class officers. A prominent example is our school dances like homecoming, prom and the winter formal.

       The assignments become more specific per class as it breaks down.

       Each grade is in charge of specific events

The senior class officers focus on planning graduation as well coordinating a senior gift and a senior trip. They also must fundraise so they plan on doing a dodgeball tournament because of the success it brought last year.

       “I got a whole bunch of ideas but our school our class is currently working on a donut day now where we sell Krispy Kreme donuts for a dollar which we plan on doing once a month,” sophomore vice president Bryson Davis said.

       The freshman class focuses on fundraising to spend on future activities.

       Class officers run fundraising campaigns in order to raise money for fun activities. Every student at southern lehigh is required to pay class dues or they will not walk at graduation. Class dues start as $30 during freshman and sophomore year then they rise to $40 at junior year and by senior year they are $50.

       Class officers plan many other activities. Last year the 2020 class officers and the 2021 collaborated on a winter “Sadie Hawkins” dance and they plan to hopefully do it again this year.

The class officers are in charge of what happens during the school year so it is important that the people who take on that challenge are determined.

       “I want to be able to have some kind of a say in how our class is and I think it is important that we all have a better school spirit and I wanna try and get that up,” senior secretary Emma Herceg said.

       Class officers have to be connected to the student body so they know what they want.

       “I get to talk to kids and know their decisions first hand and I can be like hey these are what the kids want and the president and vice president act upon that,” sophomore secretary Andrea Prince said.
