ROCKING THE VOTE! @MHS by: Xielo Cora, Co-Editor of The Shield.

This year we had a very exciting election race at Marist High School !

A couple of years ago we waited at the edge of our seats to see if history would be made in America. We wondered if we would have a first time woman president. We are still waiting for that historic moment for our nation but at Marist we can celebrate our newly

elected Madame President, Catherine Gregory! We are incredibly proud this achievement and of Catherine's many talents!

Joining Catherine’s side as Vice President is the one and only, Jon Carvajal, a dedicated, hard-working, and influential Marist student! Jon has shown his leadership qualities as captain of the soccer team as well. Together, they will be perfect leaders of Marist High School. Taylor Tunstall will be taking the responsibility of Secretary of 2019 student council! Her focus and creative mind will only benefit this year's student council team.

As for the National Honors Society of Marist High School, four additional amazing students have been given the opportunity of #leadership. The President will be none other than

Bemin Shaker. We all regard him as a jewel in the Marist Crown! Bemin is the perfect example of a trusted and well qualified #president. The intelligent and diligent Danielle Leahey will be Vice President of #NHS! As Secretary, Sharlene Escaro is a prime fit for this vital job. Lastly, Ciara Castillo will be taking on the role of Treasurer. She is a valuable #Marist student on the board and on the basketball court!

Congratulation to all of them and to all the others who ran for office. It takes courage to throw your hat in the race! We salute you and encourage the rest of the student body to follow in your footsteps.

We also hope that all future graduates register to vote in our national elections. It's a privilege that we should not take for granted. #rockthevote ! Click here for information on how to go about it.

On a separate but related note, we would also like to congratulate the newly nominated Marist Parents Association Board Members for 2018-2019.

We are certain that this group of dedicated women will achieve great success in the coming year! Become a member of the MPA and join them every second Tuesday of the month to share your ideas about fundraising events and help maintain the success of OUR school.
