March 31, 2023
The 2023-2024 officer elections took place on March 6, 2023. This election determined who would run events, fundraisers, and other enjoyable activities for each graduating class. With many years of experience in ASB, the newly elected presidents know what it takes to make next year successful.
The upcoming senior class wants to make the best of their final year of high school and the newly elected president is confident they can make that happen. The 2023-2024 Senior Class President, Noa Berry, feels her experience with ASB throughout elementary school, middle school, and high school has prepared her for the most important year in ASB. Berry said, “I do feel some pressure to make next year everyone’s best year, but I feel like I can accomplish that.”
Berry plans to use her past knowledge to continue making an impact on our school. She wants to help plan fun events that create lots of memories. Berry hopes to make next year the most special for the Class of 2024 with her plans to keep a positive attitude and get the class more involved in activities everyone can enjoy.
Travis Pang, the next junior class president, said “I wanted to run for president because I want to help my class in what is supposed to be the toughest year of high school and make it the best.” Pang is willing to work hard to make the best of his junior year, not only for himself but for his whole graduating class. He is prepared to do the most he can as president to lead his class to have a fun year despite what people say about junior year of high school.
Pang’s goal for next year is to have a good time but also plan lots of fundraisers to get more money for his class in order to have fun events. The events can only happen if they have enough money so he wants to focus on getting that money so they can have those enjoyable moments together and become close to each other. He says he can make this happen by listening to his fellow classmates and always taking into consideration what they want to do, so it can be a year that no one can forget.
“I feel there will be a bit of pressure on me as president, but nothing I won’t be able to handle,” said Pang. He shows confidence and is ready for what the next year will bring.
The next sophomore class president will be Jacob Pardus. He has been involved with leadership programs for a couple of years and has proven to students that he is the best fit for the position of president. Pardus says, “I’ve developed a passion for leading people,” and is prepared for the challenges that come with being president.
Pardus wants to work on class participation and getting everyone involved in school activities like Clash and other school events throughout the year. “I’m super excited for Clash, a huge goal of mine is to involve a ton of students in the panning and hopefully win,” said Pardus. He would like to use his position to ensure everyone is heard and involved to make school more enjoyable for students.
The freshman class president for the 2023-2024 school year is Maya Yassine. She has had many years of experience in leadership programs like the other presidents and is eager to take on a leadership role at San Dimas High School. As president, she hopes to let students voice their ideas and opinions that will help make their freshman year as fun as possible. “I also want to strengthen our bond as a class by hosting class of 2027 outings,” said Yassine. She wants to be the person that makes all those things possible for her class and is excited to do it.
Yassine believes that participation and school spirit come from the person that is representing the students, and as class president, she wants to be the best role model she can be for the class of 2027. She encourages her classmates to get involved and hopes to be the person that inspires them to be outgoing and show love for the Saints. “I’m so excited for all the different social events high school has to offer that middle school doesn’t,” says Yassine. High school has lots of different events that make it so memorable, and she can’t wait to represent the Class of 2027 at them.
Looking at the presidents for the 2023-2024 school year, the Saints seem to be in good hands and are set up for an enjoyable year. Each president has lots of things in mind to get the students involved and excited for next year. They know they have an important role and plan to make the most of it to give their peers memories they will never forget.
