Here at Ashely Ridge High School, our Swampfoxes participate in almost everything that goes on. Student Council, commonly reffered to as StuCo, however, does more than participate. StuCo makes the plans. Two happy AR attendees and active members of StuCo, Tanasia Whitlock and Korde Weeks, explain to us what it is like being a senior member of the council.

The balance between being a senior and being in StuCo is simple. Tanasia says “It does require you to be a very active member, and you will usually always be doing something for the school. It is rewarding, however, to see what you have done for the school and see how the students and your friend react to it.” Korde Weeks agrees, “It is a decent amount of work, but it is fun if you actually get into it.”

As far as the actual planning for activities and events go, however, both members had a change in attitude saying the council members do not get much say so in what happens around the school. Ultimately, Mrs. Radcliffe has the final say in what is brought to life.

Despite not having much say as they orignally anticipated before joining, both Whitlock and Weeks say StuCo has done nothing but benefit them, and being a senior they have a bit more leeway than other members. They do input ideas for Spirit Weeks like for homecoming and red ribbon week as well as themes for athletic events.

Next time you are in the student section during a football game or in a crazy outfit matching with your friend, give thanks to Tanasia and Korde and the other members of your Ashley Ridge Student Council for making it possible.
