The Wisdom HS Class of 2018 held their elections for five official student committee member representative positions, and Andrea Cardenas was elected as the senior class President for 2018.
The current junior class met in the auditorium to vote for their class representatives, and heard their fellow students give speeches as to why they would be the best candidate in each role.
“I feel great, we are going to start fundraising, senior bonding, and help raise our school spirit going into the new building next year,” said President Cardenas. “I believe we have a strong leadership team and will get a lot of things accomplished.”
Other officers elected include Awah Bodunrin as Vice President; Vanessa Villatoro as Secretary; Yamilet Jimenez as Treasurer; Astrid Escobar as Historian; and Vanessa Collazo as Ambassador.
“We are going to change the school,” said Bodunrin. “Our senior committee is going to be organized and fun.”
Villatoro will be keeping track of all events and keeping the senior class organized.
“Winning Secretary was an amazing feeling of success, because I put effort into my campaign and it was worth it,” said Villatoro. “My goal is to make 2018 the best year of our lives.”
Jimenez will be managing the fundraising efforts. “I’m in charge of fundraisers and senior dues, and I’m excited. I know the responsibility that comes with that,” said Treasurer Jimenez. “We’re also excited to be the first senior class to be in the new Wisdom High School building.”
