Meet the class of 2021’s newest officers.

TOWAMENCIN- After 3 years full of successful events at the NP middle schools, the North Penn Class of 2021 has elected their Class officers for the 2018-19 school year. Sophomores got to hear speeches both online and in person from the aspiring candidates, and vote for who they thought would best represent their class. These officers will have a role in countless activities and events throughout their time at NPHS. Let’s get to know them a bit better.

President: Gerry Libby

What are are your biggest goals for the next 3 years?

“With what’s going on in our society, such as shootings and racial tensions, I want to create unity in these rough times. I also want to increase the involvement of students, the amount of school spirit, and a

ttendance of school events by the school community.”

What is your one main goal specifically for the 2018-19 school year?

“I want to create new events for all sophomores to enjoy.”

What motivated you to run for President?

“I wanted to truly make a great impact on the lives and happiness of the sophomores who walk into North Penn everyday and go through their day. Some may be going through rough times at school with homework, bullying, etc., or they may have a difficult situation at home, and it would be great if I could make life a little better.”

What motivated you to get into student government in the first place?

“It exemplified a new challenge, and I also thought back then that it was a great way to give back to other students.”

What advice would you give to those thinking about running for class cabinet?

“Think about it wisely. If you think you are up for it, be prepared for the responsibility, but no matter what, always believe in yourself, even if others doubt you.”

 

Vice President: Sahana Prassad

What are are your biggest goals for the next 3 years?

“I want to bring more organization into the sophomore class, and to increase overall North Penn spirit.”

What is your one main goal specifically for the 2018-19 school year?

Connor Niszczak
Sahana Prassad- Vice President

“I want to increase student support. A lot of people struggle, and we have to make sure they get support, because they often don’t search for or successfully find it.”

What motivated you to run for VP?

“I was VP in middle school, so I knew that I wanted to run for VP of class cabinet.”

What motivated you to get into student government in the first place?

“I have always been interested in the organizational and behind the scenes aspects of events, so I took every opportunity that I was given to get involved. Eventually this led to student government and class cabinet.”

What advice would you give to those thinking about running for class cabinet?

“You have to be dedicated. It’s not a cake walk and you have to put work to get where you want. But if you are truly running because you love it, the amount of work shouldn’t bother you in the slightest. Put your best foot forward and it will all work out.”

 

Treasuer: Stacy Liang

What are are your biggest goals for the next 3 years?

“I want to include everyone. I feel like people get excluded from events because they think that they’re not a part of it.”

What is your one main goal specifically for the 2018-19 school year?

Connor Niszczak
Stacy Liang- Treasurer

“I definitely want to make sure I can get the best prices for all the events we plan so that all students can be apart of whatever event it may be.”

What motivated you to run for Treasurer?

“I wanted to be treasurer because in 9th grade we had a MiniThon at Pennbrook, and I was mostly in charge of that. I handled the budgeting and financial aspects very well, and I really enjoyed being involved in the behind the scenes aspects of the event.”

What motivated you to get into student government in the first place?

“As I said, I enjoy the behind the scenes aspects of events, but I also like getting to have authority and a role in deciding what events we hold because sometimes the adults are not always really in touch with what the student body actually wants to do. As a student I think I can really hear what my classmates want.”

What advice would you give to those thinking about running for class cabinet?

“Be calm and don’t stress about the possible results before you do anything. Definitely be prepared with campaigning and get things done early so you don’t rush closer to a deadline.”

 

Secretary: Kashish Patel

What are are your biggest goals for the next 3 years?

“I want people to look back at their high school years and realize that they were far better than they thought they would be. I want NP graduates to be happy with their experience here.”

What is your one main goal specifically for the 2018-19 school year?

Connor Niszczak
Kashish Patel- Secretary

“I want to make more students aware of all the activities that go on at our school so that they can get more involved and meet new people.”

What motivated you to run for Secretary?

“I have held ‘Secretary-ish” positions throughout my time in student government, and I handled the responsibilities very well.”

What motivated you to get into student government in the first place?

“I thought that I had some good ideas that I could bring to the table. I thought I could make a difference in the lives of the student body.”

What advice would you give to those thinking about running for class cabinet?

“If you believe that you have good, constructive ideas that will better the school, then you should absolutely sign up or run for office.”
