Student Council Elected at Marian Catholic High School

Marian Catholic 2011 Student Council

Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- The Marian Catholic Student Council has been elected for the 2011-2012 school year. In addition to planning Homecoming Week activities, the group also schedules several service events for the year, including the Christmas Food Drive, and is pre-planning the annual Children’s Carnival for spring semester. With representatives from every homeroom, the large group ensures that every grade level is guaranteed a voice in decisions which affect the student community.

Student Council faculty moderators, Mrs. Jennifer Lamb and Mrs. Mary Mesterharm continue to be encouraged with the level of leadership and organizational skills exhibited by the students.

“With over 1400 students attending Marian Catholic, it is important that the community has effective leadership to guide the student body in all the activities that occur throughout the year,” said Lamb.

“Our biggest service event is the Christmas Food Drive where dozens of families receive food and gifts,” added Mesterharm. “Student Council representatives coordinate the collections for their homeroom, and assist with distribution. It’s a huge job, one easily accomplished with the students’ determination and desire to serve others.”

Student Council President Dillon J. Domke of Monee has big expectations for the group this year.

“Working with such a terrific group of people who are so determined, with a strong commitment to serve the school community, will make our fund-raising and service projects much easier to manage,” he said. “This is a group of real go-getters.”
