As the long school year comes to an end, the new Student Government Association (SGA) for the 2024-2025 school year is just getting started. The new SGA is looking to fulfill students’ expectations and make this upcoming year the best year it can be.

Upcoming president Shae McCloskey plans to make the new school year as exciting as she can with more school-sponsored activities.

“[We are] looking to improve the school and make the changes everyone wants and make it a more fun year for everyone,” McCloskey said.

She is also looking forward to making sure that there will be better communication between the SGA themselves, as well as between the leaders and the student body.

“I’m gonna try and communicate with the student body more, just to see what their main concerns are cause sometimes I feel like it’s hard to say what you want to be done or what you want to be changed. So I want it to be more open so that everyone can understand what is going on or what needs to happen,” McCloskey said.

Upcoming Vice President Emnet Getachew also has similar improvements in mind. She also plans to host more events for the student body and encourage them to attend.

“I want to make pep rallies more fun and interactive, and Hoco can be kinda boring sometimes so just to make it more fun for people. I [also] want to make more events that students will actually come to and enjoy, instead of ones that people aren’t actually interested in and I overall make more interactive stuff,” Getachew said.

In addition to McCloskey and Getachew is Noah Prevost, the elected treasurer for the new school year. He plans on making sure that the SGA can provide support for all the school events and making sure that students will enjoy them.

“[We] really need to balance the budget in terms of school events like Homecoming, Prom and all the football games,” Prevost said.

Over the years, the planning for Homecoming has been slowly declining and Prevost is ready to change that. He wants to ensure they can enjoy Homecoming and have a good time.

“I really want to create a better experience for students in terms of Hoco because the last couple of years especially the one year being out on the tennis courts haven’t been the most fun so I want to create a good experience in these events. I am going to create fundraisers to fundraise these events so all the students have a good time,” Prevost said.

The final person on the SGA for the 24-25 school year is going to be secretary Sean Mpanga. He plans on making sure that students feel welcomed and safe in any situation while still being able to enjoy themselves.

“Overall, I really want to make sure that all the students feel welcomed and that it is a safe environment. I really want to make sure that everyone is safe and having fun while learning,” Mpanga said.
