It’s hard to believe the school year is almost over. The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of activities and events between sports, clubs, prom, not to mention all of the AP’s and honors courses. This past week in particular has been a busy one. Two elections were held: JSA Club elections and the school elections for Executive Student Council. I am honored to say that I was elected to be the Student Body President for next year at York.
Track and field has definitely quickened its pace as the season comes to an end. We are trying to balance the hard training with the meets on Thursdays and Saturdays. As we approach the end of the season, we will stop training and start maintaining our current state. Everyone on the team should definitely see improvements in their times over the course of the next few weeks.
Additionally, JSA Spring State is only one week away! Denny Baek and I are especially excited given the fact that we are both running for positions in NorCal JSA. I am running for mayor of the Golden Gate Region and Denny for governor of the entire NorCal JSA.
I’m very excited about next year at York and all of the opportunities that lie beyond. College, which once seemed to be so distant, is now right around the corner. Regardless of how worried my friends and I become, we all know that we are in good hands. Ms. Masten has done an excellent job preparing us for the application process. I look forward to further preparation as we approach our senior year at York.
