Leadership and citizenship were on full display during the Middle School Student Council elections on October 19. Each candidate represented King School virtues, speaking about their experiences at King and their hopes for the future.
The candidates delivered speeches to their classmates before this year’s elections.
“I can tell you that King School has changed me, giving me a sense of school pride like nothing I’ve ever felt before,” said Ian Kurlander, ’27, who was running for middle school co-president. “If you vote for me, I will try my very best to make you feel the same sense of love for this school that I do.”
“One of my goals as a King Cares Ambassador is to make sure everyone’s ideas are being heard,” said Katherine Curry ’29, who was campaigning to be the Grade 6 King Cares Ambassador.
In his speech to be elected Inclusion Ambassador, Anand Jadhav ’29 touched on ways he would facilitate students learning about one another.
“I will try to add activities that raise cultural awareness in a variety of fun ways,” said Anand. “We could do food tastings for holidays, and desserts, like mochi and other international desserts, for AAPI heritage month.”
Participation in the council provides students an opportunity to develop leadership skills by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects.
In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body. They help share student ideas, interests, and concerns with the school-wide community.
