Student Council Updates


Lakewood High School gives students ample opportunities to get involved academically, athletically, and socially. Included among these clubs and organizations is Student Council. Student Council allows students to partake in the behind-the-scenes and enables them to have a say in school events. Those in Student Council employ the characteristics of what it means to be a Ranger. They are role models and leaders of their peers and positively represent their school and community. Student council is a big responsibility. Those elected are tasked with fundraising for Prom, running pep rallies, spirit weeks, and the production of Homecoming and Winter Formal.

I was elected as Student Body Publicist for the 2022-2023 school year. In this role, I plan student events, organize fundraisers for my class, make information more accessible for students through social media, and work side by side with my advisor to promote school spirit. Being a part of the Student Council has given me a completely different perspective. It has made me grateful for all the time my teachers put in to make this school a fun learning environment for all students and it has also allowed me to grow as a person. I will graduate high school in the spring and as I reflect on my experiences at Lakewood High School, being a part of the Student Council is one of my favorites.

As the year comes to an end, it is now time for student council elections. The official titles include President, Vice President, Secretary, and Publicist. Current Freshmen can run for Sophomore Class positions, current Sophomores can run for Junior Class positions and current Juniors can run for Senior Class or Student Body positions. Students may only vote for people in their class, except for Student Body, who can be voted for by all grade levels.

In previous weeks, students interested were tasked with writing an essay as to why they think they are a good candidate for Student Council. Now, the students who met the requirements set forth by the school are allowed to begin campaigning. Posters fill the halls at Lakewood High School with funny campaign slogans and eye-catching pictures from students hoping to get their peer’s votes. This time of year is very fun for everyone. It is a great way to get involved and have your voice heard. Students, make sure to stay informed as to when voting opens and best of luck to everyone running for Student Council positions!
