As the school year comes to a close, clubs elect their new council members while they say goodbye to their seniors. This was just the case on May 9 for the National Art Honors Society (NAHS) and on May 23 for SkillsUSA when those clubs selected their new council members.

The NAHS council will consist of President Jillian Tracy of Belmar, Social Media & Correspondence Chair Sara Huang of Ocean, Workshop and Event Chair Lila Nathanson of Long Branch, and Art Club and Contest Chair Aiden Rosenberg of Freehold. There will be a junior representative elected in the fall, according to design teacher and NAHS adviser Laura Fallon.

According to Tracy, NAHS, along with Art Club, is a “place for the visual artists in CHS to come together and learn from each other through collaboration and conversation.”

Tracy is excited to work with the rest of the council this year and has lots of ideas for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. She said that all of the council members are very passionate about the group, and she hopes to be a good leader for the club.

“I am grateful that I have been elected president of this club, and… I hope that my excitement and optimism for the club translates into everything I do,” Tracy said.

The SkillsUSA council will consist of President Neil Estrada of Middletown, Vice President Isabella Antoon of Oceanport, and council members Danielle Hannah of Middletown, Steve Ostrom of Lincroft and Adriana Poznanski of Middletown.

Estrada is also excited for the new school year, as he is confident is his fellow members and is ready to lead this club.

“This club means a lot to me. It was the first club I ever really loved and wanted to get super involved with, and my past year on council has been very fulfilling,” Estrada said. “Myself and council definitely have our work cut out for us, but I’m confident we can handle it.”
