On Monday, October 30th, Student Council representatives and sponsor, Mrs. Katie Borcherding, went to the South Central District Student Council Convention at Union High School. The representatives were seniors Emma Engelbrecht and Michelle Bahena; juniors Claire Meyer, Kamryn Poe, and Joseph Rethemeyer; sophomore Makenzie Pecaut; and freshmen Madison Langenberg and Emilee Hinton.
At this convention, StuCo groups from our district had the opportunity to meet with other schools. There were motivational speakers and discussion rooms where the StuCo representatives could learn about the events that have happened or are happening in other schools.
“I loved the convention. It is always fun to have the opportunity to go and see what kind of activities other schools do so that we can bring ideas back and better our own school,” said StuCo president Emma Engelbrecht.
The representatives from New Haven lead a discussion on the community involvement with the food drive last month and the Fish-Eye booth at lunch. Leading these discussions were Emma Engelbrecht, Michelle Bahena, Claire Meyer, and Kamryn Poe.
“Leading a discussion was very cool,” said Kamryn Poe. “In Michelle’s and my room we had middle schoolers, and we all had a blast. We talked about the Fish-Eye booth, while Emma and Claire did a discussion on our food drive. Everything went smoothly and everyone had fun.”
The New Haven StuCo group was this year’s South Central District Secretary. They ran for re-election for the 2018-2019 school year, and won.
Mrs. Katie Borcherding said, “We ran for secretary and won! We will be an officer school at the South Central District Convention next year held at Richland High School.”
