With the end of the year wrapping up, the Class of 2022’s officers can finally start to catch their breath. Here are some of their favorite memories from being an officer, and some pieces of advice to the upcoming Class Cabinet members.

President Domenic Nelson

What has been your favorite part about being an officer? All in all, my favorite part of being an officer is simply the fact of being able to serve the people and collaborate with my officers (to make the dream come true).

What is a memory from the Class Cabinet that will last forever? A memory from Class Cabinet that will last forever is most definitely the Raider Reindeer 4K. There was a colossal amount of time put into that event, and it was simply a joyous point in time that the whole community could take a part of.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to the underclassmen officers? Advice that I would slide to the underclassmen officers is to make sure to stay connected with your other class officers. The collaboration between such a group of individuals is beyond imperative (especially senior year).

Vice President Rebecca Methven

What has been your favorite part about being an officer? My favorite part about being Vice President is just being there for my class, and helping to provide the best senior year for them.

What is a memory from the Class Cabinet that will last forever? A memory I will take on forever is probably both the Homecoming float we did as well as Senior Ball. Both events were a lot of fun despite the stressful planning that went into them.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to the underclassmen officers? To take your duties seriously, and always be willing to go the extra mile to help.

Secretary Angelina Aviles

What has been your favorite part about being an officer? I loved all of the different opportunities that were presented to me as an officer. I also loved being the representation of my class.

What is a memory from the Class Cabinet that will last forever? As bad as it sounds, a memory that I will always have is just being one of the few people who continuously showed up for meetings and events.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to the underclassmen officers? Underclassmen officers: This is advice that I wished I had listened to/ learned: Just know that no matter what you do, someone will always be upset by your decision. So do not take it to heart, just take it, learn from it, and move on. You will not be able to please all people all the time. Simply do your best and be yourself.

Treasurer Riley Clute

What has been your favorite part about being an officer? My favorite part about being an officer was helping to plan important senior activities that we have been working on since freshman year.

What is a memory from the Class Cabinet that will last forever? One memory I will remember for a lifetime is our last dance at Senior Ball followed by fireworks right outside. Taking one last look around at the people I have surrounded myself with for the past 7 years is a moment I know I will never forget.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to the underclassmen officers? One piece of advice I would give to the underclassman officers is to work hard but not too hard. Make sure the people you have elected in office are ready for the hard road ahead and are willing to give your class their all. Make sure you put forth a lot of effort for these senior activities because your class will not forget them.
