THE ROUNDUP

Student Council works many hours behind the scenes throughout the year to get more students involved in after school activities.

Student Council is in charge of organizing student activities at many events including football games, basketball games, soccer games as well as the numerous dances they host each year.

Taylor Wood ’15 and Jacob Anderson ’15 were in charge of the music at most of the fall football games and Wood is currently known as “DJ Hollywood.”

Wood also DJs the Frosh Mixer as well Friday Night Lights.

“Members of Student Council do not have specific positions, instead we work as a group collectively on projects,” Wood said. “But me and the other guys that have three years of experience take a role as mentors to the younger members.”

Wood has been on Student Council since sophomore year and started to DJ his junior year.

“I like being able to facilitate other groups around campus and helping people become involved,” Wood said.

Mark Frakes ’15 and other members of Student Council often wear body paint to the football games to get the crowd more excited.

“I joined Student Council my sophomore year because I wanted to make school events more exciting,” Frakes said.

Frakes said one of his favorite parts of being on Student Council was putting on body paint and being a letter at the football games.

Student Council’s biggest events this year were prom and homecoming.

Student Council is in charge of planning dances, setting them up and cleaning them up.

Members usually come to school the day after the dance to pick up the mess left behind by students.

This year’s prom was Disney themed.
