Student Council jumped into the new school year with the Frosh Mixer and a Friday Night Lights following the first football game of the season.
Nate Sundermier ’12 has been involved with the Student Council for three years and spearheaded this year’s Frosh Mixer.
Other Student Council members commended Sundermier for his planning.
“I think it was one of the best Frosh Mixers that we have ever had,” said Keaton Leander ’13, who has been actively involved in Student Council for the last few years.
Leander participates in many of the Student Council activities, but is most involved in the music as “DJ Leanderthal.”
Besides Leander and Sundermier, there are many new students who are participating in Student Council this year.
“We have a lot of fresh new talent on Student Council from the seniors to the juniors to the sophomores—everyone is contributing great ideas and we will put on great event after great event,” Sundermier said.
Leander also agreed about the advantages of having so many new kids on Student Council this year.
“When you throw new people into the picture it brings out a lot of cool, new, creative and fun ideas,” he said.
Chad Ahrensdorf ’12 is one of the students who are new to Student Council.
“I’d have to say being on Student Council is incredible,” Ahrensdorf wrote in an email. “You really have no idea how much work and planning is involved to make the events as great as they are until you are ‘behind the scenes.’ It’s a great way to give back to a school that I have come to love over the years.”
Ahrensdorf added a Brophy adage to any students who are interested in Student Council.
“Take advantage of Brophy, throw yourself 100 percent into activities; you will get so much out of them,” he said.
Student Council is currently planning the Homecoming dance and other events, like Sunday Fun-Day.
