Posters were hung. Speeches were given. And so, the spirited campaigning began. The student body at Wyoming Area Catholic experienced first hand what it means to participate in the election process. In their Social Studies class, students in fourth through eighth grades spoke about voting as every citizen’s right and responsibility. Thus, the election of student council representatives began. Votes were cast for class representatives in first through eighth grades. Two representatives were chosen from each class. Officers were elected at the first council meeting. Mrs. Evelyn Owens, third grade and Mrs. Ann Marie Walsh, eighth grade, serve as moderators for the Student Council.

Sixteen class representatives from first through eighth grades gathered in early October to elect the Student Council officers for the 2011-2012 school year. Student Council is committed to service in the school and community. A number of service-related activities are planned for the current school year and we look forward to everyone’s cooperation to ensure success.
