Newly-elected Student Executive Council ready for 2021-2022 school year

After a day of voting and a run-off vote, students have elected the next Student Executive Council for the 2021-2022 school year.

Cameron Dunbar ’22 was elected president; Christian Covert ’22, vice president; Adam Hammond ’22, secretary/treasurer; Charlie Minor ’22, activities coordinator; Jack Dyer ’22, intramurals coordinator; Nick Cordano ’22, publicity coordinator; and Santiago Gage ’22, head cheerleader.

Even through a global pandemic, the candidates were still able to campaign safely. All candidates prepared a video of themselves giving their speech for their fellow Marauders to watch. They also hung up posters all around campus for students learning in-person to look at.

Newly elected leaders Charlie Minor and Christian Covert share their thoughts on how they want to combat the effects of COVID-19 in students’ school life and give back what was lost this year.

I’m super excited to be on [the Student Executive Council] next year mainly because of how hard it has been to get involved this year,” Charlie said. “I know everyone says this, but it’s just been a major bummer not being able to do as much this year like with Spirit Week and going to football and basketball games. I want to make it up to the freshmen who haven’t been able to participate in a normal year.”

“I am most interested in bringing Jesuit back to how it was,” Christian said. “I want to bring the energy back to what it once was and see everyone have the best experiences possible next year.”

Along with a new Student Executive Council, there will also be a new Director of Student Activities. English teacher Mr. Peter Ferrari will be taking on the role next school year. He has high hopes for the next school year despite still being in the midst of the pandemic.

As we emerge from the pandemic, I believe that there are many opportunities to come together in community and have fun,” Mr. Ferrari said. “Of course, COVID-19 is still a harsh reality, but with an increasing number of individuals being vaccinated, we will hopefully be able to have lots of fun events in the fall.”

While nobody can predict what the 2021-2022 school year will bring, it’s clear the 2021-2022 Student Executive Council has lofty expectations for what can be accomplished.
