Cat Kolm, Staff Writer

The results from the election for ASB positions are in: junior Newton Kwan won the ASB presidency over junior Kelly Furay, and junior Samantha Bartak was elected ASB Treasurer over sophomore Sarah Chu.

Elections for Associated Student Body positions were held on Thursday, April 18, and the results were announced on Friday, April 19.

For most people, making decisions for themselves is frightening enough; making decisions that affect the entire school is out of the question.  According to Bartak, this does not apply to the new ASB president. “ASB president is a big job, but I am confident that Newton will succeed.  He is extremely hard working and dedicated to everything that he does,” she said.

Although Furay was not elected, she believes that next year will be great. “Obviously, I’m upset that I won’t be ASB President next year, but I think Newton will do a great job in that position next year,” she said. “I look forward to working with him in Leadership as well as making Campo a more spirited and friendly place myself.”

The results from the class elections are also in: the freshmen have chosen Fiona Stewart for next year’s student body president; the sophomores decided on Alex Gannett; and the juniors elected Kendall Henderson.  The elections were held for freshmen on Wednesday, May 8, sophomores on Thursday, May 9, and juniors on Friday, May 10.

Henderson was happy about being elected.  “I decided to run for President because I absolutely loved my time in Leadership this year,” she said. “I was Social Secretary this year, and I couldn’t imagine my senior year without Leadership in my schedule.  I’ve loved my time at Campo, and I knew that being class President would be the best way to give back!”

Elected students already have a plan for next year.  “The Leadership class goals for next year are similar to those of this year: make everyone welcome and make school more fun,” said Bartak.

According to Henderson, the seniors are in for a great next year.  “I would describe my plan for next year as ‘memorable experiences,'” she said.  “Next year will be bittersweet for our class, but I will strive to make it our most memorable year yet.”
