The 2012 ASB members were elected on Thursday Jan. 19. Following the election, ASB’s goals are to work on filling up the open spots with candidates who lost in the election, and to get students more involved in lunchtime activities.
A commisionership has always been very competitive, but this year the competition is even harder. ASB has a lot of returning members running for a commisionership, and many other qualified first-timers are apply too.
“This year in particular we have 10-12 freshman all very qualified, and it’s the hardest part of being on head row because we have to make theses decisions. There are a lot of people who expect to come back back into ASB, but this year they may not be able to,” Saleh said.
The biggest goal for ASB this semester is to get the student body more involved. In the past student turn out to school events has fallen slightly. ASB is hoping to make the events more appealing so every students attends.
“You’re going to see a lot of spirit coming on the front lawn. We have a whole list, going from dodge-ball tournaments, to couple’s game, Junior-Senior week and a lot more,” Saleh said.
Another idea for the upcoming semester is Hallowspring. On Hallowspring students will dress up as if it were Halloween, but instead of taking place in October, the holiday will take place some time during the spring.
“Right now Hallowspring is just an idea, but it would be very unique event. It would be something only Beverly does,” Saleh said.
