EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – In an effort to continue building cohesion amongst their peers and community, some of the top students at the Bronxville Elementary School have been chosen to form a new Student Council.
Twenty-three fourth and fifth-grade students were selected to serve on the Student Council this year, “a group that encourages students to engage in their local community to make it a better place.”
In all, more than 75 students were entered into a lobby for admission into the Student Council. They then submitted essay describing their individual leadership skills and explaining why they would be a suitable candidate for the prestigious honor.
Throughout the year, the Student Council will collaborate on a series of school and community-based projects. This year, those tasks will include overseeing the Bronxville Memorial Day logo contest and the promotion of the Be3 program by leading school assemblies.
Members of this year’s Student Council include Jakob Adkins, Christopher Coquillette, Alec Davis, Savannah Delli Colli, Luke Dougherty, Jack Evans, Isabela Fenner, Katherine Gunduz, Savannah Hill, Brooke Kaye, Frannie Krause, Kenry Krex, Madeline Lescott, Alden Martinelli, John Meyercord, Angus O’Friel, Helen O’Neill, Katelin Pettee, Naischa Puri, Hayes Romley, Anna Ruiz, Jack Sipple and Albert Van Ness.
According to Elementary School Principal Tricia Murray, “although not everyone could be selected to represent the school, their interest is a testament to how important leadership is to them.”
“Student Council members have a vested interest in making our school community better,” she said. “They have already spoken about different ideas and projects they could lead and are excited about implementing them.”
