ASB elections are over, and people have found out who will fill the positions for the 2019-2020 year. This has been not only a stressful time for the current ASB class, but also for the students running for leadership positions. Audrey Raulli (11), who is currently in ASB fulfilling the position of prom commissioner, will serve as Senior Class Secretary for the upcoming year.
“After going through the process of planning a school dance, I realized that communication and staying organized is a big factor that contributes to the success of anything you do,” Audrey said. “When [I’m] looking at the bigger picture, there are many fun activities that our class gets to host during our senior year, and I think that the communication and organization skills I have developed as prom commissioner will help our class stay on task for a very special year.”
She described ASB as a “really fun experience in which you get to interact with the student body instead of being focused on academics.” She also mentioned how being in ASB allowed her to to reach out to staff members and students, and make the high school experience better for everyone through events and lunch time activities.
People often overlook all the effort ASB puts into coordinating activities. There is a huge lack of school spirit, but Audrey aims to change that.
“I hope to rebuild the school comradery, and encourage the student body to dress up for spirit week and participate in activities we put on,” she explained.
She has had a lot of experience collaborating with her fellow ASB members and peers. Since fifth grade, she’s been a member of Once Upon A Room, an organization which helps kids in the hospital by decorating their hospital rooms and making them feel special. That desire to help others was what pushed her to join ASB.
“I applied for ASB my senior year because I have learned that leaders don’t look over people from the top, they stand underneath them and lift them from the bottom. ASB has taught me what I can do to work with others and support the school,” she noted. “I feel so fortunate to have attended school in such a special place and I would like to give back however I can.”
“ASB has taught me what I can do to work with others and support the school. I would love to continue to encourage school spirit, support teams, and make the school a better place for parents, students, teachers, and staff in ASB my senior year. I feel so fortunate to have attended school in such a special place, and I would like to give back however I can.”
