During my freshman year I proposed a homecoming, and I kept working at this until now, freshmen, you will be the first class that will have this new Sturgis tradition for all four years. Because of the success of Homecoming, this has been the first year in which Student Council ends the year with money left over, which will jump start us for next year.
Student Council is important to Maggie and Ito me and that is why we have both been on it for the past three years. I have been Freshman Representative, Sophomore Representative and I currently serve as your Vice President. Maggie and I have been working together since the first Friday of freshman year, talking to PMarbs, haggling with local businesses, and planning and managing events. We are the only people running for President and Vice President who have both been on StuCo since the moment they have arrived at Sturgis. That’s dedication.
Our first step in making next year ballin' is to hear what you, the student body have to say. That is why if elected we will be conducting a survey next year to hear what you want to do. That's accountability.
We want a year packed with the events that you want.
Finally I just want to make something clear: I’m not running for the title or to put something down on my college app. I’m running because I love this school, and as a senior I think its time we shake things up.
So please vote for us, Maggie Randall, and me, Liam Prendergast!
Think of the memories you want to have years from now about your time in high school whether it be Field Day, Homecoming, or something new! If you elect me as Vice President, I will help in making Sturgis what you want it to be. I’m always open to suggestions and am looking forward to seeing a positive change in Sturgis as well as holding onto our traditions. Student Council has done so much for me and I recommend that everyone join. Since I have become a member, I began to realize just how much I could make a difference in Sturgis and in our community.
I think that over the past three years both Liam and I have seen this ambition become a reality and we hope to see this continue with your vote this spring. Thank you.
