2018-2019 Student Leadership Council

Every March, students begin to dream of their finished finals and upcoming summer plans. However, SLC Supervisor Christina Figueroa is already preparing for next year. Applications for the 2019-2020 Student Leadership Council are available. SLC coordinates and executes dances, rallies, fundraisers, and most student activities on and off campus. This group of students are strong leaders and focus on the desires of the student body. They use their voices to improve the Xavier Community.

Brianna Bocca, a current Senior and the Vice President of Brebeuf, stated that the most rewarding part of the student council is providing the student body with a voice. “As SLC members, we represent Xavier as a whole. We hear from the students and their proposed ideas and execute them. This connection allows SLC to be as successful as it can be.” Bocca applied for a leadership position because she wanted to have an impact on the school and become more involved in coordinating the various events SLC organizes.

Being a part of SLC is so fulfilling that many Junior members plan to apply again for the next school year. Ajeet Bir, a Junior and one of the Gonzaga Deputies, shared why he will fight for the President’s Spot. He stated, “I’ve enjoyed the ability to directly facilitate change and it has always been a personal goal to be Gonzaga President ever since my brother held the position eight years ago.” Most of the Juniors currently serving in the council plan to re-apply because of the strong relationships they developed with Xavier students and staff. Even though these students are interested in serving again, they are not guaranteed a spot since every student is considered equally and must complete the application process.

Savannah May, a current Sophomore, is interested in SLC because she is passionate about our community. She hopes to interact with everyone and create connections with them through this opportunity. May is dedicated to being a strong leader and is excited to campaign for a position in the council. Adele Benson, a Junior, will focus on the House System and hopes to lead her house–Faber–to the House Cup next year. She will run for a position so she can become more involved in school.

The SLC team acting silly on their annual leadership retreat.

If you are interested in serving the Xavier community you should campaign for a Student Leadership Council position. Everyone is capable of being a leader and SLC encourages you to become more involved in your high school experience. Advocate for your classmates and be on the lookout for the details regarding elections. Packets will be sent out soon for the initial application process. Be the voice the Xavier Community needs and join SLC!
