A few months ago I decided I wanted to run for Senior President for my school. And guess what. I did!! I ran a good campaign and in the end it all payed off. When all the ballets were submitted, I came out on top. So far on top that I had 100% of the votes for my position. This is because I was running unopposed. It was quite disappointing that this wasn’t a challenge, but theres nothing I could have done about that.
So now I have two positions at my school, Webmaster and Senior President. I wonder how many more I can get 😛
If anyone cares, here is my speech:
My name is Eli Loewen, and I’m running for Senior Class President. I’ve been given the opportunity to say a few words about what I believe in and what my vision is for this school. My vision is very simple: I believe that as a high school in our community we should be leaders in the community. I believe that we have a responsibility as students, and as human beings, to evaluate what we’re doing as a society and to try to improve on it. We have the power to make a change in the world, if we can only direct our efforts towards a common goal, and as a school we have a lot to offer. We have talent, motivation, and intelligence, and if we take those things and apply them towards a purpose, then we can effect a change. Whatever else high school may mean, whatever things that we are being prepared for, one thing is certain: when we leave here we will be entering a broken world, a world that we will be expected to fix. What will we do now to make this job easier on ourselves in the future? We at A&T have the ability to begin to make a difference right now. And as senior president I will make that difference. Thank you.
