Freshman Ava Zaremski proudly holds her nomination form to be class treasurer.

Freshman Clare Brees-Oswald sits in the cafeteria excitedly talking to her group of friends while sifting through a stack of papers. Student Council and Human Relations Council nominations are due, and she is fine-tuning her nomination form so she can run for class vice president.

Freshman Ava Zaremski feels the same nervousness as she looks over her nomination to be treasurer. Though neither girl had been involved in any type of student council at their middle schools, both feel that they will be successful leaders if chosen by their class.

“I am running because I think I can make a difference here at Mercy,” said a smiling Zaremski.

Brees-Oswald is running because she wants to become a bigger part of Mercy and get more involved.

“I’m starting early so I will be able to try again for sophomore class elections if I don’t make it this year,” said Brees-Oswald.

Running for student council or HRC is a great way for students, especially freshmen, to get into the full swing of Mercy life. It is an easy way to make friends, get acquainted with the school and staff, and it is a fantastic leadership opportunity. Additionally, most freshmen may hardly be thinking of college, but taking on such a big commitment is very impressive.

No matter what happens in the elections, Zaremski and Brees-Oswald are both very eager to participate in this big event.

All freshmen will vote in the primary elections at sign-in on October 15th and for the final officer elections October 22nd.
