Student Government Elections - Links to Vote

Voting for Student Government Elected positions is open now through Thursday, March 5 at 3:30pm.  We have an unusual case this year in that no incoming seniors applied for the ASB President position.  You will see the first vote on the ballot is whether you would like to fill the position with the ASB Vice President candidate who receives the most votes or fill it with a Senior through an appointed process.  In addition, there are several positions that only have one candidate running - these candidates must still receive 50% +1 of the possible votes to be elected. 

Links to vote are:

Class of 2016                 Class of 2017                      Class of 2018

Senior Class President

Leah Nguyen

1. Why are you applying for this position?

I am applying for this position because being in ASB this year has been a big eye opener for the type of leader I am. As a new member this year had no idea what I was doing and in the beginning it was a bit overwhelming considering I had an important position, and lacked experience. Despite these hardships I think I’ve faced the challenge set forth with success, while managing my extracurricular activates and keep my grades up. In my opinion, applying for this position is a personal challenge that I know I can manage, although I may not have as much experience as 2-3 year veteran, I do possess skills needed to carry out the job. I want senior year to be a memorable year, and if I have any say in the way it went I’d definitely want to make sure I’m taking that opportunity.

2. What do you hope to accomplish if selected for this position?

If I am selected for this position I hope to carry out senior activities such as Senior Sunrise, Senior BBQ, Senior Sunset, etc., to the best of my ability and in the most organized and concise manner possible. Most of all, since it will be last year of high school, I hope to unite my class so that all my events are fun and meaningful to everyone. I feel that if we graduate and we don’t know the name of the person sitting next to us during the ceremony, we’ve defeated the purpose of having all these senior events.

3. What strengths or contributions do you feel you bring to the position you are applying for?

I have fair share of strengths and contributions that would be valuable to the senior council. I believe my ability to effectively communicate with others would be most important skills as a leader, if you can’t communicate with others, then nothing will ever be accomplished. Next, I feel that my ability to prior plan will make sure the council will be organized, and reduces the likelihood that something will go wrong at the events. Lastly, I think my ability to be well rounded allows me to work well with others despite differences in personality and work ethics.

4. What previous experiences do you feel you have that will help you if selected for this position?

Since I am currently President of the junior class I believe that I am most fir for the job next year. Although junior council does not have as many duties to carry as senior council, planning prom, being in the class, and seeing how senior council carries out their daily tasks gave me the opportunity to shadow their footsteps. Being in junior council has been a great learning experience for me and I continue to learn everyday and I think that is something that will strengthen the organization of next year’s council. You can’t expect to have a strong council if the leader hasn’t had experience in order to do the tasks that you’re supposed to carry out.

Senior Class Vice President

Tina Duong

1. Why are you applying for this position?

I am applying for the position of senior class VP to ensure that senior year will be the most successful and enjoyable year of their lives. I would also like to take all of the ideas that the senior student body has and try to achieve and make their goals into reality. I am here to make a difference on campus.

2. What do you hope to accomplish if selected for this position?

 I hope to accomplish bringing the entire class of 2016 together so we can have the most memorable year of high school. Having a great relationship with the rest of the class will make senior events more fun and I will be here to make sure we will become one big happy family. 

3. What strengths or contributions do you feel you bring to the position you are applying for?

 I really enjoy being involved with school and planning events for my fellow students. I am a very hard worker and if I start a job, I'll make sure to get it done to the best way that it can be. I am a very easy person to work with and talk to and I think that's a really important quality to have when being in a council.  

4. What previous experience(s) do you feel you have that will help you if selected for this position?

This year, I am secretary/treasurer of junior council. Already being in council will really help me be successful in senior council. I feel like I can take on a higher position and handle all of the responsibilities being senior class VP has to offer.  

Karamjot Kaur

1. Why are you applying for this position?

 I’m applying for this position to become a better leader for the student body and to set an example for my class. I would also like to challenge myself to work harder, be able to cooperate, have teamwork in the council, and be able to give my class a really good memory filled year.

2. What do you hope to accomplish if selected for this position?

I hope to bring my class together, so we are able to bond well and make the events better. I hope to improve my delegation and speaking skills. Since I am shy and I do not like talking to big crowds and by student senate I could work on that skill. Also, work hard and make ASB a better working environment, to be able to work as a team with cooperation.

3.  What strengths or contributions do you feel you bring to the position you are applying for?

The strengths I bring to this position is that I am a hard worker, I have a good attitude, I bring outside experience from being in ASB and not in council, I do my job and what I am told to do. I’m punctual and time matters to me, because if something has to be done on time, then I will make sure it gets done on time. I have shown some leadership skills by giving other people jobs and expecting them to have it done.

4. What previous experience(s) do you feel you have that will help you if selected for this position?

The previous experience that I have from being in ASB for 1 year, has made me improve the kind of person I am. This job will make me become more responsible and organized I am like I am in ASB currently. Even though; I have struggled at the beginning, my experience of being in ASB has helped me develop to become a better leader for everybody on this campus, and hopefully become a good leader for my class. Also to be able to set an example for others to show the type of person I am and my personality.

Ari Uzzle

1.  Why are you applying for this position?

I’m applying for this position because I feel like I’d be a good fit to represent the seniors spirit wise.

What I hope to accomplish is any that is remotely possible. I want to put the most amount of effort into motivating my class into showing school spirit.

Also, I want people to know that they’re not lame if they show pride for their high school

3.  What strengths or contributions do you feel you bring to the position you are applying for?

A strength that I have is my very loud mouth. I usually can persuade my friends into participating in school functions. I feel like with being a senior soon, I have the feeling that I should be a role model for underclassmen. So if all seniors show school pride, it might influence other underclassmen to do the same.

4.  What previous experiences(s) do you feel you have that will help you if selected for this position?

I went through a phase (freshmen/sophomore year) where I thought it was lame to show school spirit. School wasn’t that fun, because I never went to any school functions. Junior year I realized that I wanted to make the most of my high school career so I really got into spirit related things. I think that now the I’ve experienced both sides of the fence, I’ll know what can motivate students to show school spirit and what won’t.
