Candidates for Class of 2012 President
My name is Jamie Blue and I am running for Sophomore Class President. All of my young life I have aspired to be the leader in whatever organization I am involved with. From being captain of my gold medal winning basketball team, to garnering the “Undefeatable Award” for extra effort and leadership, to achieving the “Most Dedicated Award” from the Uni High Varsity Basketball team, I have been a leader. I recently received the 2009 Student Historians of the Year for my articles published in Illinois History: A Magazine for Young People. I take on every challenge, every opportunity and give everything I have all the time. I lead by example in the classroom, in school and in the community and would enjoy the challenge of representing the class of 2012 in the Student Body of University High School. I have been referred to by my friends and teammates as ”the most honest person I know” and as Class President I will set an example of being an open minded, fair, honest, true and committed officer for the Sophomore class. I want to make the class of 2012 the class to remember not only in the hallways of Uni, but also on the fields, courts, and stages of our great community. I have worked hard the past two years as your class president, planning lock-ins, dances, and going to weekly meetings. Next year, I hope to work hard again to improve and lead our class.
Synergy, Mattress, Constantinople. These are words, but what our class needs is action. Luke Karmazin will end corruption, put a stop to crime, and look really cool while doing so. Vote Luke Karmazin.
Candidates for Class of 2012 Vice President
I, Marie Lilly, am running for Vice President again! I am qualified for this position because I am very organized, I care about our class, and I really want to be involved. I am open to everyone’s ideas and opinions. As Vice President of our class this past year, I have been helping to plan Spring Fling (which although it hasn’t happened yet, will be completely awesome!) and organize a fundraiser for X-Week. We had many pizza and bake sales this year as well as trying something new and having a successful hot chocolate sale in January. Now that I have been part of Student Council for the past 2 years, I have more experience and I have lots of ideas for next year! I also know more about how things work at Uni and about the process for organizing and planning events. Vote for me because if I am elected as Vice President, our sophomore year will be superb! :)
I would like to run for vice president. Two years at Uni High have allowed e to become familiar and understand the school’s atmosphere, and to evelop a vision of issues that can be addressed by the Student Council. The previous experience of being in office during Elementary and Middle School where I was a Class Secretary and then as a member of the Student Council helped me to develop communication skills and leadership qualities. I can work both independently and as a part of the office team. I have ideas of new events that I would be glad to organize during the next school year including entertainment and community service. I’m confident that in the position of vice president, I will contribute enthusiasm, creativity, and leadership to enrich the experience of my fellow classmates at Uni High.
Candidates for Class of 2012 Secretary-Treasurer
Hi, I'm Kathy, and I'm running for class secretary. I would be a good secretary because I have obediently done many errands for teachers, my parents, my sister, and classmates. For example, I get new Kleenex boxes from the office for classrooms; I go grocery-shopping when my parents are not able to; I buy food for my sister when she is hungry; and I always return pencils I borrow from other classmates.
In conclusion, I think I would be a good class secretary.
Hello to all, my name is Annie Rong and I will be running for the Secretary/Treasurer position this year for the rising sophomore class! I think that I would be a good secretary/treasurer because I’m an organized person, I like taking notes, managing events, and to work with others. In the past, I served Student Council in all my previous school and was the previous Subbie and Freshmen Secretary/Treasurer. It was a really fun experience and I really enjoyed it. That’s why I would like to run for it again this year! Thank you for reading. :P Your vote would be much appreciated.
Candidate for Class of 2012 SFAC Representative
Hey guys! I, Christina Harden, am running for SFAC representative for the Freshmen class again this year! I think I'm qualified for this position because I've served on SFAC for the past two years, so I think I have plenty of experience for this position thingy, I also think I'm a pretty organized person, and I care about all your lovely and creative ideas! :D I would really like to be on SFAC again this year because I think I'll have more of a voice in what we talk about, and help to improve Uni a lot more. In the past, our awesome Freshmen class representatives have planned a lot of cool stuff, and we'd like to continue to be involved in doing that. So, overall, it would be awesome if you guys would elect me to be SFAC representative again. :)
