Student government association elections will be held on Wednesday, August 23 during homeroom. The election was delayed from the end of last school year because Mrs. Thomas, SGA’s sponsor, went into labor before her due date.

Seniors Rachel Montgomery and Alexa Carlos Tamez, who are running unopposed, will serve as the club’s President and Vice President. Senior Angelina Grosso and sophomore Lena Hatter will be running for secretary, and seniors Sydney Zamorano and Jerry Sola will be running for treasurer.

“Not having officers for the first meeting was strange,” Montgomery said. “Normally with SGA the officers are elected the year prior and then those people can start coming up with ideas so that planning homecoming and spirit week can go a little smoother. Without actually being elected, Alexa and I, although we know now that we’re going unopposed, have had to start some of the planning like coming up with the homecoming theme. We just wish that because Mrs. Thomas was having her baby, someone else could have handled the election part so we could all be more settled.” 

Senior Angelina Grosso says she would have preferred the SGA elections to have been last year because having to worry about them on top of her other senior year activities is inconvenient. 

“I’m a bit annoyed at how the SGA elections are happening this year versus last school year,” Grosso said. “My school year been so busy so far, so it’s hard. I still really want to win so I’m determine while campaigning, but it’s difficult because I also have work, the SAT, the ACT, and college applications to worry about.”
