On Wednesday April 19, Helix Charter High School revealed the class of 2018, 2019, and 2020 class officers would be for the 2017-2018 school year.
Before the going through the process of publicizing their slogans to promote the position that they wanted to strive for winning, students had to meet the requirements of a 3.0 GPA and no “U” in any classes in order to run for a position.
Mr. Adam Krzywicki, ASB Director, said that the way that the voting works is that “class officers are elected solely on student voting. Students may run every year regardless of the outcome of the previous year’s election.”
This process makes the elections student-based so that way students and their peers have a deeper connection with one another and the class officers make it their priority to create a balance to do what the majority of the school would want versus what they need.
36 students applied for a class officer position this year between 9th – 11th grades. After a week and a half of publicizing with posters around the campus and social media, class officers were announced on April 19th during advisory period, the results being:
Class of 2018
President – Ryan Gwin
Vice President – Capri Wilson
Secretary – Jaize Holt
Treasurer – Matthew Goldman
Class of 2019
President – Kaelin Mastronardi
Vice President – Victoria Slocum
Secretary – JD Hopper
Treasurer – Nathan Nguyen
Class of 2020
President – Cole Dominguez
Vice President – Amaya Jones
Secretary – Ariana Adamson
Treasurer – Penelope Amado
Kaelin Mastronardi, newly voted class of 2019 President, said that by taking the position of being class president, he knew that he could make a positive and impacting change for the school and thanks his peers for electing him.
Nathan Nguyen, elected class of 2019 treasurer, said that “I have to think about my class as whole now instead of myself and I know that’s something I can accomplish with this position.”
Jaize Holt, class of 2018 Secretary, said she is more than happy to be in this position and she hopes to make her senior year the best it can be.
