    ASB '09-'10

    Post  estherlin on Sun Sep 13, 2009 9:19 pm

    With the start of another new school year comes a new batch of leaders, a new Associated Student Body. Year after year, the ASB consists of the same number of members filling the same necessary positions. So what sets this bunch of spirited individuals apart? That would have to be the “VERY different people” who are “all willing and creative in their own leader-like ways” says Senior Executive President Leah Wong. She adds that the new council has “a lot of guts and are not afraid to dream big and try them out.” Advised by faculty John Tung and Edmund Sutro, the ASB here at AHS functions very different from those at other schools. As Mr. Sutro stated, “AHS is unusual insofar as it allows greater responsibility to remain in the hands of students. Few schools view the teachers/advisors as "staff" to the students.” Though it looks over many of the behind-the-scenes activities, the ASB can be credited for events like the Homecoming, student elections, and assemblies. Overseeing a student body of 3,600 students with 22 sports teams, 10+ performing groups, 10+ academic teams, and 60+ clubs is no easy task, but the individuals elected by the student majority are up for the job!
    The first two weeks back were no doubt a hectic week for our ASB, who worked collectively as a whole to promote Spirit Week and welcome the freshmen into high school with their annual skit and dance. On top of that, members had to hold regular business meetings in order to take care of the check registers and activities that always pile up at the beginning of the year. But despite the tedious work that comes with the job, our ASB is working hard to bring a new Spirit Week activity that was thought up of in the summer in relation to Homecoming dance. AHS is basically overpopulated with “self- driven academically inclined students” who naturally have trouble contributing to the “collective whole or legacy of a school year when they're all busy with their own success paths” commented Leah, the ASB is determined to raise up the school spirit (that is currently top secret, I don’t know whether do put this part in because iuno if they intend to reveal it before we go to press). As Sophomore Senator Stephen Lee mentioned, “I feel that ASB is my family, and together we can make this a wonderful year.” Due to the unfortunate happenings at the planned Homecoming venue, ASB’s original plans for Homecoming were delayed. However, the members are working twice to make this an event seniors won’t forget as the Homecoming date looms closer.

    The first two weeks back were no doubt a hectic week for our ASB, who worked collectively as a whole [repetitive, change to "collaborated"] to promote Spirit Week and welcome the freshmen into high school with their annual skit and dance at the Freshmen Assembly. On top of that, members had to hold regular business meetings in order to take care of the check registers and activities that always pile up at the beginning of the year.
