I am running for reelection for the position of civics representative this year because I’ve really enjoyed having a chance this past school year to collaborate with other members of stuco to make the changes that the student body wants. I can’t emphasize enough how much I’ve learned in my first term as a part of Policy Board and look forward to having the opportunity to use my knowledge of the structure and methodology of Policy Board in my senior year to implement changes smoothly and effectively. I think that I am a good candidate for this position because I am a versatile leader in the sense that I can contribute not only by confidently voicing my opinions but also by stepping back and hearing what others have to say. I have been at OES now for 12 years and have a good feel for the way each division functions and operates. In addition to these qualifications I have also served in leadership roles in athletics and activities such as Soccer, Tennis, Mock Trial, Midwinter Madness, Film Club, and Student Council this past year. I strongly believe that I am highly qualified and motivated to serve another year as civics representative on Policy Board. Another factor that makes me stand out as the optimal candidate for this position is that I’ve already served time on Policy Board and therefore won’t need an adjustment period to be effective in this position.
