Campaign Speech given by Gracie Spencer '25

September 13, 2019 by Guest Student Author

Every spring, we elect not only the OEKS (student heads of eight different areas of school) and the Vice President of Student Council but also the Presidents of the 9th grade, sophomore, junior, and senior classes. Each fall, the upper school classes elect a Vice President, the eighth graders elect Co-Presidents, and the seventh graders elect a Class Representative.

This year, we invited the newest members of Student Council to share their campaign speeches. This speech, by Gracie Spencer, Seventh Grade Class Representative, is our second submission.
