April 01, 2017
Leading the student body next school year will be Zeke Jimenez. Zeke was elected president of Student Council by students in grades 8-11.
Zeke's platform included giving students some say in the lunch menus and working on school spirit, including more class competitions and theme nights at home sporting events. He also said he would take any ideas the students had to the principal, his dad. "I'm not afraid of him," said Zeke.
Concluding his speech, Zeke, imitating President Trump, said, " I would make sure to stay open to ideas and work to make DCHS great again."
Faith Meitl will be a co-vice president. She said she would work to implement a tutoring program run by students. "You could ask for help from students who want to and know how to help," said Faith. She also would encourage school pride and involvement more with activities and rewards.
Serving as secretary will be Larry Radovich. During his speech, he said, "As secretary I will help to improve the communication between the students and student council, by putting updates into the daily announcements. Also by keeping everyone up to date on subjects that have been brought up to the Student Council, that we are either changing or improving upon."
Kole Breth will be next year's treasurer. Kole talked about growing up in the school. "No one here knows or loves this school more than I do," said Kole. He too would like to see students have a voice in school lunches and work on the STARS program, which was started this year by the current Student Council officers. "We all complain about things we don’t like, but if all we do is complain, nothing changes. I’d like to be a voice of change," said Kole.
"All of the candidates did a great job," said Stuco sponsor Brenda Breth. "These were some of the best speeches we've had in a long time. It takes a lot of guts to speak in front of the entire student body, and teachers and administration, so I commend these young people, and I look forward to working with them next year."
