Student Council elections will take place on June 12 and June 13 during all lunches. Students run together as a pair of a president and vice president. WSPN met with the Student Council president and vice president candidates.

Gavyn Davies (President)

Why are you running?
“I’m running for Student Council president because I’ve spent three years in student government with E-Board and [its class adviser Lee] Krasnoo. I’ve done a lot of work with [juniors] Ciara Murphy, Ryan Urato and Krasnoo organizing fundraisers and planning events like prom. I had a big part in planning prom and semi. I feel like I know how to run student government, how the school works and how I could help improve things in our school. I think I could really make it fun and also just have it be really beneficial for the students and teachers.”

If you win, what do you hope to accomplish next year?
“I hope to keep things fun and energetic. I hope to make Spirit Day more fun and innovative. I think that the Student Council did a good job with coming up with the “Spring Week” idea this year. Kyle and I hope to elaborate on that and make it into a Winter Week thing because spring is an exciting time of school where it’s warm out and everyone’s excited for the summer. I think we could capitalize on that good energy and make a couple of fun events and have a big school bonding time for students.”

Kyle Chen (Vice President)

Why are you running?
“Gavyn and I decided to run because we had a lot of ideas about how we can run the school and make the school more of a place where everyone can come together and have a lot of fun. From last year, we thought that the Student Council did a good job. We have some other ideas that we want to implement, and we want to make our last year a great year and hope to bring the school together.”

If you win, what do you hope to accomplish next year?
“One of our big ideas is the idea of a Spring Week. Gavyn and I drew a lot of inspiration from LS. They have a day where food trucks come to their school, and it’s just a day for the school community to be together and to have some fun. It’s like a field day almost. We also want to implement more spikeball and dodgeball. Winter Week was pretty good this year, but we want to do more with that next year. I think that the idea of the scavenger hunt is something we definitely want to keep.”

Arden Knapp (President)

Why are you running?
“I am running because I think I could do a really good job at creating events that will want to bring the school together.”

If you win, what do you hope to accomplish next year?
“If I win, I hope to accomplish a really fun year filled with an awesome Winter Week, Spirit Week, and some spring events. We also want to bring the scavenger hunt back, and we just want to allow our high school to become really close and have an awesome year, especially for the seniors.”

Aidan Bonner (Vice President)

Why are you running?
“I just want to keep everything that [former Student Council Vice President] Gage [Fuller] and [former Student Council President] Amanda [Armstrong] had done. For example, we want to keep the scavenger hunt because everyone liked that. We also want to get Spirit Week back to grade vs. grade and make it more competitive.”

If you win, what do you hope to accomplish next year?
“We just want to make it similar as this year with the scavenger hunt. We want to get another movie, and we want to make more competition with Spirit Week.”

Shawn Bernier (President)

Why are you running?
“I’m running for Student Council president because I believe I have what it takes to better the school and the school body. Also, I’ve worked closely with [Principal Allyson] Mizoguchi and [Student Council Adviser William] Wolven during Student Council as a representative, so I know that I have what it takes to keep the school moving forward.”

If you win, what do you hope to accomplish next year?
“I hope to achieve new ties among the student body, as well as create new traditions for the school.”

CJ Brown (Vice President)

Why are you running?
“I’ve had my eye on student government for a while, and when Shawn approached me with the opportunity, I knew that we’d make a great team. I think we’re definitely candidates that people at WHS would want to vote for.”

If you win, what do you hope to accomplish next year?
“We’re just hoping to make the school a better place. I think that Shawn and I both had a pretty great experience at WHS, so we just want to improve on that for other students and make sure that everyone at WHS has the best experience possible.”

Gabriella Rostler (President)

Why are you running?
“I’m running because I see being Student Council president as an opportunity to change things in the school that I have wanted to be different in the past years.”

If you win, what do you hope to accomplish next year?
“If I win, I hope to implement the things I’ve wanted to change such as by-grade Spirit Week, more events leading up to Spirit Week, a fun Winter Week, a Spring Week, etc. Overall, I hope to make next year a fun year for everyone.”

Jasper Hsu (Vice President)

Why are you running?
“I’m running because I think I can make some kind of impact on the school.”

If you win, what do you hope to accomplish next year?
“I hope to make Winter Week better [and] have Spring Week be more of a thing next year. [I hope to be] improving on what Gage and Amanda did and then also [fix] Spirit Day.”
