Nicholas County High School Student Council has had an eventful and busy start to this year, with the recruitment of new members, hosting the Homecoming dance, and attending Fall Convention.
Fall Convention was October 13-15th at Jackson’s Mill in Weston. “Fall Convention’s main purpose is to elect new state officers for the West Virgina Association of Student Councils, and it gives the students a chance to network with other student councils across their state while gathering ideas for their own,” explained Mrs. Lusk, the NCHS Student Council Advisor. Mrs. Lusk led and supervised the group of NCHS students, which included Noah Parker, Olivia Parker, Chloe Sparks, Kinley Epperly, Hunter Gohil, and Student Council President Galilea Villasenor. Galilea said, “The guest speaker Keith Hawkins taught me that everyone is always better than good because someone else is always having a harder time.”
All students chosen have shown excellency in schoolwork and in their desire to help their peers. “I joined because I hope to make this school better for my peers,” said senior Cameron Thomas.
All members have been working hard to make this year better than the last. They work constantly for NCHS to make sure that the students have a good school experience.
Best of luck to the Student Council for the rest of the year!
