Eagle High, students are always looking for a way to improve the school and its community. Those who are driven to make a positive change have a chance to do so through student council. In Student Council, students are given a chance to team up with other students with similar ideas and put them into action. These can be various ideas from bringing a student’s concerns to attention or organizing fun events. All of these efforts are put to use through STUCO  or Student Council. 

Senior Paige Cantwell, this year’s STUCO president, shared her thoughts on what student council is and what it means to Eagle High.  

“Student Council is the student government of our school and is comprised of students that want to better the culture of our school,” Cantwell said. 

At Eagle High, the student council meets every other day during period 2A. One of their main responsibilities is getting involved in the community and organizing events. Specific events that have been orchestrated this year include the parking spot painting, Trunk or Treat, assemblies, Battle of the Bolt, and Make a Wish. Upcoming events taken on by STUCO include the blood drive and prom.

Other important tasks that are taken on by STUCO include making posters for home games and sports to hang in the school and outside of the bleachers to support Eagle High teams.  

Another thing that we do is brighten our school with posters, either something fun or information,” Cantwell said. 

With the end of the school year quickly approaching, this means new leaders will have to step up. Elections are currently running. Students had the ability to vote for ASB positions the week before spring break which was March 11-15. 

After the new ASB officers are, they will be responsible for conducting interviews for students interested in joining STUCO next year. Different positions have varying requirements for admission, but they are primarily based on interviews, teacher recommendations and essays.  

So, students that are interested in student council next year, be sure to keep an eye out for information and announcements regarding the upcoming elections. Information is also available on the official Eagle High website announcements and the official Instagram: officialehsmustangs. 

All in all, STUCO serves as a vital part of the student body and administration. Students must continue within the spirit of collaboration and leadership within the limits of education. Many students have a passion for change and can bear witness to the dedication of that positive change and passion. Through a commitment to making the school community feel more energetic and empowering, it can bring a vibrant and thriving atmosphere to the community.
