The Student Council of WCHS

The student council of WCHS is operated by a group of students, from freshman to seniors, all nominated and chosen, that represent their peers and organize events for the school. Student council focuses on making everyone’s high school experience the best it can possibly be.

Jack Hall is the Senior Class President of the student council. He has been involved in student council all of his high school career so I decided to ask him a few questions about the group.

Save The Earth

If every person on the planet contributed a little bit of effort to help keeping the environment clean, it would make the world a tremendously better place. Scientists have proven that humans use Earths resources fifty percent faster than it is replenished. This lead them to conclude that by the year 2030 (ten years from now), we technically will need two Earths to support our population and consumption. We also have destroyed numerous animal and plant lives and habitats. Every year between 18,000 and 55,000 species go extinct due to human activities.Image result for environment planet earth"

West Clermont Performing Arts

There are so many great things about our school at West Clermont. The Art programs at West Clermont are very important to the students and teachers. Not only do we have programs during  school, we have so many after-school programs as well. During school hours those include band, choir, dance and piano. During the whole the day, music is flowing through out the school. 

West Clermont’s Band is an outlet for a lot of students. I have been told that you make some of your best friends in band. The West Clermont band has been taught by Brain Fischer since the school opened in the summer of 2017. Among the Seniors that have been in band since the beginning, Sophie Jennings shared what being in West Clermont’s band means to her: “Band has shown me how to manage my time, be more organized and so many more things. I have learned to come out of my shell and become more extroverted. I used to be a very shy person, but band has taught me how to be myself around more people. All of my friend group has come from band, and I have made a family that I will forever appreciate. Our band director, Brian Fischer, has shown that he isn’t just here for the money. He is here to share his love of music with the students and teachers of West Clermont.”
