On Tuesday, September 26th, The National Honor Society held its elections for officers. Seniors Connor Brandi, Adanne Ogbaa, Zach Tu, Kevin Cheng, and Ramon Fille ran for presidency. Connor Brandi hopes this club can engage in many fundraisers and community service activities, whereas Adanne Ogbaa promised to conduct organized meetings, and to create a “Remind System” so that members of NHS know about upcoming meetings and community service opportunities. Kevin Cheng’s leadership skills were nurtured in martial art classes as well as performances at Yale. Zach Tu explained how he was able to revive Student Council through his own hard work and approachability. Lastly, Ramon Fille showcased his positive attitude and his willingness to work with everyone, both as a class officer as well as captain of both boys tennis and boys swimming team. Faced with a difficult decision, NHS members chose Connor Brandi and Adanne Ogbaa as co-presidents because of their determination, leadership skills and outstanding effort throughout their high school career.
Running for secretary were, Dylan Zack, Mads Murphy, and Aria Ahmed. Even with being captain of the football team, Dylan Zack intends to put NHS first. However, both Mads Murphy and Aria Ahmed’s excellent organization skills and flexibility led NHS members to choose them as impeccable co-secretaries.
Ashley Womack and Brendan Stiltner both ran for Tutor Chair, who is responsible for coordinating and maintaining the NHS tutoring program. Ashley first got involved three years ago when she began tutoring students ages 8-18 at Yale New Haven Reads. This experience has taught her patience and helpfulness. Brendan Stiltner is excited to help others improve their grades. These students are not afraid to put in the necessary effort it takes to lend a helping hand which is why both students tied for this position.
Chibuikem Iwuagwu, India Rivera and Mia Romano ran unopposed for volunteer chair and fundraising chairs.
