The new ASB officers for the school year 2021-22 plan to change the environment of the students and the school with their innovative ideas.

Mrs. Jessica Lee, the new leadership teacher, talked about her thoughts on the new ASB officers.

Since I will be a new teacher at Bear River next year, I am unable to speak to how things will change as I am not there to speak accurately about how the culture and environment currently are,” she said. “However, I can say that I am very much looking forward to working with the newly elected ASB officers. In the short time that I have spent with them so far, I can see that they each genuinely care about Bear River students and staff and want to make the school as great as possible. I feel confident that they will be excellent advocates for all students and will help make next school year memorable for all.”

President and Junior Ana Hamilton described what she wants to change in the upcoming school year.

“For next school year, I plan on bringing back as many Bear River traditions and events as I can,” she said. “My goal is to make the 2021-2022 school year as fun-filled, spirited, and safe as possible.”

She continued, going into more detail about specific events.

“As soon as we get approval for events such as rallies and dances, we will plan and put them on!” she said. “Leadership Applications just opened, and we’re hoping to make the class filled with students from all different programs, clubs, and teams to improve communication at Bear River. Next year, I want to ensure that all students get the information they need to participate in events and spirit days. I also want to make sure that programs, clubs, and teams get the support they need to put on their own events and succeed in them. This is something the Leadership Class will work on so that everyone knows what is going on at all times.”

Treasurer and Junior Ryan Potts said his plans for next year are positive.

“My team and my plans for next year is to bring back the livelihood of Bear River and its spirit. Students have gone through struggles over the last year and we want to come back and give them a brand new experience.” 

He detailed a hopeful comeback from the difficulties of COVID-19 restrictions.

“We hope to see a lot of change next year in [COVID-19] as well as what we do. Bringing back and improving activities, rallies, events, spirit days, as well as campus respect and care are all things we would like to achieve and implement. ‘Having the student body be a part of recommending and giving input is also very important to us and will be a great part of how we make decisions.”

He finished with high hopes for the future.

“Due to [COVID-19], kids have missed out on a lot of the components to a great high school experience with the acceptance of the great work this year’s officers have done,” he said. “Since the beginning of this difficult time things have only gotten better and with the hopes this continues, I believe the 2021-2022 school year is going to make up for the limited opportunities this year has offered. We are only excited for what’s to come in the future.”
