Kesli Ashjian is the sophomore class president for the 2014-2015 school year. Her sister inspired her to run for sophomore class president because she was the sophomore class president in 2012.
“It would be a great thing to put on my college resume and I would be able to get more involved in our school,” said sophomore Kesli Ashjian.
As sophomore class president, Kesli plans to bring the sophomore class closer together. She also wants the sophomore class to be as successful as possible.
“Being the best leader I can be and helping others out whenever possible,” said Ashjian
Being class president isn’t always easy. As class president, Kesli needs to make big decisions that people won’t always love. An example of one of Kesli’s big decisions is trying to plan homecoming.
“I find it hard because I know I’m not going to be able to please everyone, so I just have to do what my officers and I think is best.”
When making big decisions, the class president has to keep in mind that with so many students they can’t always satisfy everyone. In addition to making big decisions, to be class president it is important to be outgoing. Whoever is running for class president, or for any position, needs to get the word out that they are running for that position so that people will vote for them. People need to know who you are so they will vote for you.
“Just reach out to as many people as possible to show that you aren’t afraid to be a leader and so that people remember your name,” said Ashjian
Next year, as a junior, Kesli plans to run for ASB officer. But as a backup plan, she will run for junior class president. So when you’re voting next year, keep Kesli Ashjian in mind!
