After a long year of planning Winter ball, Junior Prom, and other class events, the Class of 2019 Cabinet is ready for a year of planning the Disney trip, pep rally, Senior Prom, Class Night, Reflections, and more. Last week, all juniors had the opportunity to watch speeches and vote between 9 candidates for who they believed were best fit to be their class officers.

Meet who the Class of 2019 elected for their senior year:

President: Sarah Marshall

3rd year as President

What motivated you to run for this position?

I’ve actually been motivated since I was little to read a graduation speech (I thought I’d be valedictorian but that was not going to happen). I mean that wasn’t the only thing, I love being president and everything that comes with it, but this year over the last two I really wanted to read that graduation speech senior year.

 

What do you plan to do next year as an officer?

Next year as an officer I plan on making senior year the year that students will remember when looking back. Mainly prom, class night, reflections, and graduation would be the most memorable experiences.

 

Any advice for those running in the future?

My advice for other people running is know it’s a lot of work, know there will be times you want to give up because you’re so stressed, but also know it’s the best experience of your life. When it’s done you’ll realize the reason you ran and put up with the little details because it’s a great accomplishment.

 

What does having this position mean to you?

Having this position has meant everything to me. In a way, it’s my identity and it’s who I am. Everyday, good or bad, I’m the president which to this day still baffles me how cool that is. It’s the greatest feeling in the world to wake up knowing there’s this special thing about you and that feeling has gotten me through some rough days this year.

 

Vice President: Jared Albano

3rd year as Vice President

What motivated you to run for this position?

Way back in sophomore year, I wanted a leadership position in the school that would benefit the entire class and allow me to help make our high school experience a really great one.

 

What do you plan to do next year as an officer?

As VP, I am in charge of making sure we have an awesome class trip and a relaxing class night to get together with our friends one more time before the end of the school year.

 

Any advice for those running in the future?

Make sure to get your name out there so everyone knows who you are. Hang up posters, flyers, and deliver a strong speech. If you’re interested in running, don’t be afraid to try.

 

What does having this position mean to you?

I really appreciate that I have been voted Vice President for the last 3 years. It’s a really important position to me and I like to interact with different people in our grade.

 

Treasurer: J.P. Grattan

2nd year as Treasurer

What motivated you to run for this position?

I wanted to run for treasurer because it’s a position where you’re highly involved with behind the scenes work. I like being involved and having input and influence in a lot of class activities, so it’s a great position for me. I also wanted to be involved with the financial work for senior year, which is demanding but also very rewarding.

 

What do you plan to do next year as an officer?

As an officer, I plan to make the Disney trip as seamless as possible for everyone involved. I also will help plan senior prom and make it an extremely special night. I will work hard to ensure that class night, reflections, and graduation are amazing experiences that will cap off our time at North Penn in a fitting way. Overall, I will apply myself to make sure that senior year is as awesome as possible.

 

Any advice for those running in the future?

My advice for those running in the future is to reach out and talk to the people who are officers now. I would be happy to talk to anyone who’s thinking of running for treasurer or just applying for cabinet. There are a lot of misconceptions about what officers do, and you want to make sure that you really understand the position and your responsibilities before you commit to it for a year.

 

What does having this position mean to you?

For me, being treasurer means a lot because it shows that my classmates trust me to handle our money. It makes me proud that I was elected again to handle our accounts and transactions because it shows that my classmates have faith in me to handle those responsibilities.

 

Secretary: Sean LeConey

1st year as Secretary

What motivated you to run for this position?

I wanted to run because I loved staying after school to help set up, so with being an officer, I would be able to have a more active role with setting up and planning school events. Also after seeing all the names read at graduation I’ve always wanted to be apart of that tradition.

 

What do you plan to do next year as an officer?

I plan to develop fundraising ideas for our Disney trip in order to allow more people to go. Since I’ve been lucky enough to go 4 times, I realized not everyone gets this experience, so I really wanted to allow everyone to have a magical Disney trip. I also plan to have more charitable fundraisers since we are a class full of North Penn Pride, so I want to show the people in need that people are always there to help.

 

Any advice for those running in the future?

For anyone willing to put themselves out there for an officer position I think all you need to know is be willing to embarrass yourself for the school. Yes speaking in front of the class can be awkward but the more you are willing to be yourself on stage the more everyone will listen. Also you have to be able to love helping our school since the whole year our job is to bring the best senior experience, so you can’t really do that without school spirit and pride.

 

What does having this position mean to you?

Being the class of 2019 Secretary means I have the ability to not only make senior year memorable for us but for our community to become stronger. Attending our school football games and seeing our amazing student section cheer on our Knights is an inspiration. North Penn is more than a school, it’s a family, and I’ll do anything to keep that family running.
