As the 2023-24 school year comes to an end, the ASB leadership starts anew.
The annual ASB elections created a buzz around school as students waited to see the results of who would be shaping next year’s leadership.
With Lucy Rantz as ASB President, Austin Mertens as Vice President, Gabby Gerster as Secretary and Evan Rabo as Treasurer, teacher Jessica Lee shed some light on how the interview process went and how the four candidates got elected.
“Potential candidates have to fill out an application, need to get parental consent to run for office, must answer written interview questions, and then must meet the eligibility criteria,” Lee said. “That criterion consists of things like teacher recommendations, grades, attendance, behavior and more.”
It’s a very extensive process that highlights each candidate’s personality and effort toward Bear River.
Even though this year’s ASB highlighted a spirited atmosphere and passionate events, future ASB president Lucy Rantz is very excited to ignite new traditions at Bear River.
“I am so excited to serve the school community next year and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Rantz has high hopes for next year and has really loved being a part of the election process.
While students are still in the home stretch of this school year, Rantz is looking to the future of Bear River.
“I am hoping to improve the school’s campus culture by doing different events to increase recognition for all the different parts of Bear River that make it such a wonderful place to be,” she said.
Rantz wants everyone involved in the Bear River community to feel appreciated and passionate about school by creating new spirited traditions.
Current ASB president Maliya Mendoza expressed her thoughts on passing down her torch as president and how the interview process went.
“In the interview process everyone was on the same consensus of who should be where and that the interviewees did a really good job at being professional,” Mendoza said. “I could tell that all the candidates really cared about Bear River, and since the conversations went really well, I feel strongly about who ended up in each position.”
Along with Mendoza, Lee feels really hopeful about the future of Bear River’s ASB.
Through Lee’s role as activities director, Mendoza has felt that Leadership has taken big steps toward a more positive school community. She feels that the new ASB leaders will be able to finish the ideas this year’s ASB started.
