On May 31, the Class of 2022 held elections in room 105 for their sophomore class council, set to serve for the 2019-2020 school year. After 11 candidates were chosen in primaries, students gave speeches to their class in hopes of filling the five council positions.

The sophomore council will consist of President Sam Skolnick of Hazlet, Co-Vice Presidents Liam Stemetzki of Wall and Drew Lepping of West Long Branch, and council members Maggie Schneider of Wall and Isabella Ji of Holmdel. For the second year in a row, the council will have two vice presidents.

Spanish teacher and Class of 2022 adviser Karen Britto said she believes the freshman class has already proven to be successful and is in good hands for the upcoming year.

“The class of 2022 is a bright, energetic, creative and fun group of people. I think the class is and was in good hands,” Britto said. “Our big event sophomore year is the Winter Ball, I am interested in hearing suggestions from the class and council for fundraising and class and school-wide activities.”

As newly elected president, Skolnick is grateful for her position and looks forward to working hard in the upcoming school year.

“I feel so lucky to be chosen for this position. My past council taught me a lot about leadership and I hope to make them proud,” Skolnick said. “I am looking forward to coordinating the Winter Ball and just enjoying sophomore year with the best grade around.”
