Senior Class Elections 2010: Meet Your Candidates for Treasurer

Maddie Kruger is an officer/choreographer in Show Choir. She is a member of Poms and BBYO, a Washington-area Jewish youth group.


 

GOALS?
To have a whole bunch of new and innovative fundraisers that get people excited for our class. I am bored of restaurant nights and bake sales; I have new ideas such as a school wide yard sale or movie nights. It would be cool to lower the cost of prom tickets because [overall] prom is expensive.


INTERESTING FACT?
I am very responsible when it comes to officer positions.While I have never been in student body government before, I have held countless positions on the board of my youth group. It’s taught me so many things about budgeting, time management, and responsibility– all three of which certainly apply being Treasurer.


YOUR COMPETITON?
I am very obsessive about certain things. When I set a goal I will not be able to stop thinking, talking, or processing until it is completed- which is a good trait most of the time.

Jennie Zelenko was junior class treasurer and the coed volleyball captain this past year. She is also on the girls volleyball and Swim and Dive teams. She is involved with the Key Club and Jewish Culture Club.

GOALS?
To raise money for our class so we can have amazing school run events (such as senior picnic, prom, etc.) by having fundraisers that everyone can participate in. I want to encourage school spirit everywhere and whenever possible, keep the Pennies for Patients winning streak going, and of course, as seniors, just have ridiculous amounts of fun.


INTERESTING FACT?
I really enjoy spending time at WJ for charity events and meeting new students and teachers. I’ve never experienced a community like this where being able to give back is such an amazing experience that everyone partakes in.


YOUR COMPETITION?
I have more experience in being a class representative, having been both the freshman and junior class Treasurer. I’m extremely familiar with the regulations for fundraising, advertising and I already have a preexisting relationship with the adults involved in the process. In addition, I really am running for the class of 2011, I really want to represent all of the students’ concerns and ideas.


Ian Green is the current Editorial editor of The Pitch Online.
GOALS?
Have the fundraisers make mad bank, help make your senior year as entertaining as possible, and to inflate my ego to such a degree that I will only be addressed as Sir Ian and will wear a cape with said title.  


INTERESING FACT?
I am a very honest person. Remember when I said I would wear a cape that says “Sir Ian”? It’s gonna happen.  I play football, basketball, ping-pong and baseball and watchs movies on a consistent basis.  

I appreciate what each and every student has to say, and I look forward to hopefully, being the Treasurer that you can count on. The one that can tuck you in at night. The one who can make your dreams come true, Hall & Oates style.

YOUR COMPETITON?
I am the lone male running amongst two females. That differs me in a way from my opponents. I believe what also differs me from my fellow candidates, who by the way are great people and highly qualified for the job, is creativity and a fresh, new voice.  And I’m not just referring to my actual voice, the signature, deep, silky-smooth monotone I’m renowned for, but also my opinions and perspective on life. I feel like I could push the role of Treasurer to new limits. I feel like I could reach out to people that normally are not involved in the school. I feel like I could make a real change.

About the Contributor
Katie Levingston
Katie Levingston, Online Editor in Chief
Although she seems quiet on the outside, 2010-2011 Online Editor-in-Chief Katie Levingston is bursting with energy on the inside. A former young Parisian in her second year on staff, Katie models her life after certain television shows, namely Gilmore Girls and Friends. She is unnaturally familiar with said sitcoms; she longs for the day when she can eat anything she wants and spend all her time at Central Perk in the Village. Nothing happens to her in real life, it all happens in Stars Hollow or in Monica’s apartment… okay? When she’s not practicing her speed-talking, she plays a mean clarinet in many different musical groups and spends inordinate amounts of time editing videos for the website. Among her most pressing decisions in life are what to order at a restaurant and which scarf to wear that day. She is insanely proud of her thick curly hair when it cooperates. She’s super excited to be a part of the up-and-coming wjpitch.com. Her doppelganger Anne Hathaway says, "Hi!"
