Each year the senior class of Broken Arrow High School elects new class officers. The voting for class officers was held Sept. 21 through Sept. 22. The presidential candidate winner was Lexi Bagrosky, the vice president winner was Lorance Washington, and the treasurer winner was Gracelyn Basinger. The senior class is sponsored by sophomore English teacher Shelly Swisher.
“Being a class officer is a tremendous honor. However, it’s also a big responsibility. The success or failure of all events rides solely on the shoulders of the officers and board members,” Swisher said.
Campaigners were told to keep the campaigning relatively cheap to avoid buying votes. Posters were placed around the school with catch phrases. Chalk was also used around the school’s sidewalks to help catch the eyes of the students.
As president, she has multiple responsibilities such as designing the senior t-shirts, planning the senior skit and creating new activities for the senior class.
“I feel so honored to be class president, and I hope to give the class of 2017 the very best senior year Broken Arrow has ever had,” Bagrosky said.Lorance Washington was elected senior class vice president and he has multiple ideas and activities planned for this year. His responsibilities also include planning the meetings with the senior board members.
“I just want to add events to the school year so seniors can have an enjoyable and memorable final year in high school,” Washington said.
Lastly, the elected senior class treasurer is Gracelyn Basinger. Basinger used verbal tactics and social media to promote her campaign.
“During my time as treasurer, I really hope I can make everyone’s senior year as memorable and important as possible. Being in charge of events like project graduation and the senior skit among other things, it is our job as officers to ensure these events are as creative and successful as they can be,” Basinger said.
Officers will meet twice a month, once being with officers only, then once with the entire board.
