1st Round ASB Election Campaign Question Candidate Responses -

 

ASB Presidential Candidates:

Blake Gerstner

 

1. At McNary I have played soccer, lacrosse,ran cross-country and wrestled. Sports are a great way to prepare yourself to be mentally tough and act as an example to others. I am also very involved in my youth group at church, it has given me several leadership opportunities that helped me plan for events. At my church, I also participate in the Boy Scouts. I am an Eagle Scout. This has greatly helped me lead others and plan projects to do.

 

2. I plan on getting more involved in student gov't, try a new club or two, and the same things I’ve done these past couple years.

 

3. I want to become ASB Pres. to make this next year the best possible! I have fun ideas for pep assemblies this next year. Also I plan on running scm and other student events smooth and efficient.

 

4. I have had a lot of experience through church, scouts, and from having a job. These have prepared me to lead the school and to get things done for our schools benefit.

 

5. Vote for me for a great year.

 

6. Yes.

ASB Candidate: Riley Hamilton

I will be running for the position of ASB President.

 

1. In my eighth and ninth grade years, I participated in football; I parted with it in order to further pursue music. Starting in fifth grade, I am currently in my seventh year of playing in band. I have led many small ensembles and have occasionally led the band as a whole. This past summer, I worked as a lifeguard at a waterpark. This job required leadership abilities of a small group of lifeguards working together to attempt CPR and potentially save a life. Though I fortunately never had to perform resuscitation on a guest, I still practiced up to 3 times a week in simulations. This helped me grow as a leader overall.

 

2. This next year I plan on being in the McNary Wind Ensemble, and also taking leadership class. If the Celtics Care Club that Jaime is planning to start is up and running, I would also like to participate and even lead that.

 

3. I would like to be an ASB officer because I believe I could be an excellent leader and good example for the entire school. I participate in all dress-up days and themes, and enjoy being festive and enthusiastic towards school related events. I want to spread this positive energy to the entire school, while also displaying great leadership and ideas through hard work.

 

4. The largest contributions to my leadership abilities and qualifications are band, leadership class, and lifeguarding. Band has taught me integrity; I do not always want to practice my instrument on my own time, but I have learned to still work at it to improve myself and contribute better to the entire band. Leadership class has taught me organization skills, better effort to achieving a goal, and a sense of vision for a finished product. At the waterpark, I learned to communicate with my team and with the recipients of my actions. When attempting a save, communication is vital. If the members of the team do not work well together, the whole situation may go awry. The guests at the park have many initial fears and assumptions, so simultaneous communication with them is a must to prevent an undesirable conflict or confrontation.

 

5. The biggest suggestion I would make for the 2015-16 year would be to keep the school spirit up and make everybody excited for school. I feel too many kids find school to be a drag, and I hope to make them more excited to wake up and go to school. I want to see 90+% participation in themes, a better overall atmosphere, and a student body who takes pride in being an attendee of McNary High School.

 

6. I agree to take an ASB leadership class as an elective next year and plan to partake in all activities related to it.

Senior Class Presidential Candidates -

 

ASB Candidate: Alicia Capuchine

 

I will be running for: Senior Class President

 

1. Past activities that I have participated in are Track and Field, Cross Country, and have been in leadership since 7th grade. Being a true leader is stepping up and showing people what you have. Teaching and helping people that aren't aware of things. And enlightening them with your knowledge. Sports have taught me how to step up and take a higher role. Every year in leadership is different. Being a part in it for multiple years, I have seen my share of good teamwork and bad. Sadly, have been a part in each as well. But each year I also learn how to deal with those things and make them better.

 

2. This upcoming year, I plan on participating in cross country, track and field, leadership, and also if Care Club gets going I plan on keeping that going.

 

3. Being an elected official has been part of my life for three years, this has became part of me and I love it. No matter how stressed I get or people not liking me. This is a huge part of my life. Being an ASB official is my calling. It makes me happy making others happy over the things i do. Watching people laugh at the Talent show, something I planned extra hard on felt nothing but satisfying. I also just want to make the class of 2016s last year the best year yet!

 

4. I have been an elected official for three years and have also been involved in leadership for about four. My experience in this is definitely worthy of being your Senior Class President.

 

5. I think that whoever is elected for Senior Class President should make sure that the final year of the students is definitely the best. Forget the lame props, let's get everyone their own rally towel with 2016 on it! Lets get Phil Knight to be the keynote speaker at Graduation. Lets leave nothing behind this last year, let's leave our mark at this school and show that our class will be missed.

6. Yes, i agree to take ASB leadership class as an elective and partake in all relating activities.

ASB Candidate: Cory Matlock

 

I will be running for: Senior Class President

 

1. Activities that I did in the past and currently still do that I believe prepared me to be a leader would include playing volleyball for 6 years and being a team captain, participating in leadership in middle school, being in band and choir throughout middle school and into high school, being a teacher’s aid, and (currently) having a job. Being a team captain of any sport is a big responsibility because its your job to be the go-to person when the coach isn’t available and to know how to handle and react to situations that arise; I think that’s an important skill for any leader to have, especially a leader of an entire class, because when students come to you with their problems you should know how to help them and get them answers. Middle school leadership taught me all of the fundamentals of being an active school leader and communicating issues to teachers in the appropriate manner. In the 5 years I participated in choir and band, I led many small groups by myself and assisted the director whenever needed and I believe this helped me become comfortable leading and being in charge of a group. Finally, I think having a job taught me the most in being independent and figuring out how to instruct myself and, at the same time, those around me. I’ve been working at the same store for nearly 2 years and my managers have been able to teach me how to be a leader as well.

 

2. This next year I plan to continue to be in McNary’s leadership class and hopefully be an aid for a teacher. Also, I want to do a lot more volunteer work around the school like helping with clubs and running concessions at events. I think being a leader and being active in school activities go hand in hand so I’m going to make it a priority to be active in as many school events as possible.

 

3. I want to be an ABS officer so I can become even more apart of my school and the senior class and be able to have input on any school events. I want to also be able to have my peers come to me about issues they are having or suggestions they have and convey them to the committee or teacher that it needs to be directed to. I know the importance of having more suggestions on ideas than just one.

 

4. In middle school I was apart of the leadership program and was one of the active members of the class who attended sporting events, helped teachers out around the school with projects they needed done, volunteered for events that came up, and tried to help out with student body issues. I believe my job also gives me further experience in things like being able to openly talk to others comfortably and know how to problem solve quickly.

 

5. I have a lot of suggestions for the 2015-16 school year on things such as how to improve assemblies to get more people to attend and spread spirit, the planning of homecoming and prom, and how to encourage the students of McNary to be active in events like sports and clubs and make them fun for everyone.

 

6. I agree to take ASB Leadership class as an elective this next school year (2015-16) and partake in ALL relating activities.

My Name is Christian Scofield.

I will be running for Senior Class President.

 

1.            Being in as many activities as I am, you acquire a wide variety of skills, not something you could get from just one thing. I’ve been everywhere from the Mathletes to the Football Team to Marching Band. Some people may say I’m an Overachiever, but I like to look at it as giving my all. No matter what I’m involved in I give 150%, even more so if I’m passionate about what I’m doing. Football taught me real teamwork attributes. If you don’t bring as much to the table as your fellow brothers, you’re bringing down the team. I was constantly being tested and my coaches would push me to the limit, never accepting less than my best. That stuck, and I use those skills in everything I do. It transferred over into my Band experience for one thing. Being picked as Drum Major this last season was another huge obstacle for me to pass. Being one of the youngest Drum Majors, I was warned of the responsibilities that would come with the job, but I didn’t care. If anything, that was an excuse? I was able to have a successful year not only pushed myself, but because I got the chance to make a connections with the members of the Band I never had before… Helping them and working with them to create something amazing has been the highlight of my year so far, and I want to continue this tradition of being involved in leadership roles that will help my fellow peers and my experience for the future. I was very excited in receiving the Junior Class Representative position for this last Semester of the year, and I can already feel myself growing as an individual. What I mean is, I am being pushed to be...self-driven? Being the new guy, I have accepted the challenge of doing my part while finding my place in this program. By next year I hope to continue my experience with this leadership class by becoming the new Senior Class President!

 

2.                   This next year, I admit, will be a busy year. Honestly, not much is changing content-wise about what I’m involved in, but everything is moving up to the next level. I will be in the Wind Ensemble, so there will most likely be set practices afterschool; they are very Repetitive, and very easy to work the schedule around (not over). Included in that is Marching Band, during the Fall, and Basketball Band, during the Winter. Also, around this time next year, I will be in Track again, most likely on the Varsity team. There are daily practices afterschool, but nothing a little personal training time can’t fix. In taking this Position, I would do an excellent job of prioritizing Leadership and making sure I would be just as involved as I would if it was the only thing on my schedule. I have much experience with multi-tasking and keeping a busy schedule, so lacking to keep up with my daily duties is not in my programming (not the way I run things). Although it is my Senior year and much of it will be spent finishing some of the last seasons of these events in my life, I still understand the importance this job would entail and the time that must be spent to make this program flourish. I will accept nothing less than my best effort, so I promise this program the same.

 

3.                   Being an ASB Officer would be amazing because it would give me the opportunity to really give back to McNary High! I have this genuine passion for contributing to this school. I have much experience with Leadership positions, so I don’t want to just be sitting back twiddling my thumbs? I guess...being involved and part of something bigger makes me feel like I’m giving back, to the students, teachers, and the community. I want to raise the bar of this Leadership program, bring out what real potential it has, and show others why I have so much Love for this School and the people in it.

 

4.                   Like previously stated, I have been put in the role of a Leader many times before. When I come up to a situation I like to push the seams! This position would give me the opportunity to find new ways to approach the way we do things. Not only do I have experience being a Leader, but I also have compassion and humility for other people and their opinions. Rather than finding one way, I’d rather find 7 different ways to solve a problem and pick the one that benefits the most people. I have exercised public speaking and speech skills, and I pride myself with having a genuine talent for connecting with people and their morals. One of the biggest reasons I have for joining is to interact with new people and ways to make things happen, and I think I have a Chance to change things...for the better?

 

5.                   Something I really look forward to is planning some of the final event these students will ever have to remember and reflect on their high school career with. Senior Sunrise, a addresal to my peers at graduation, and even the Senior barbeque are all riveting experiences that I can’t wait to sink my teeth into and add my own flair to. Rather than be like any other class, I want to find new ways to get people to think about their final years at McNary high school. Just thinking about giving my Class something to look forward to, and eventually look back on, is just...amazing to think about. It is a high bar, but I intend on pushing it even farther!

 

6.                   I agree to take ASB leadership class as an elective next Semester (2014-2015) and partake in ALL relating activities.

Junior Class President -

 

ASB Canidate: Brittany Brown

 

1. List your past activities and describe how they have prepared you to be a leader.

•Talent Show: Last year I planned our annual talent show. This project took a lot of detailed planning in order to make sure the event ran well and smoothly. This project made upwards of $2000 dollars filling the auditorium. This has prepared me to be a leader because though it was fun it showed that I can stay well organized in order to get an event to run smoothly.

•Volleyball: For the past few years I've played volleyball which has taught me to work hard for what I want. It also taught me how to work well with others and set an example for other players on the court.

•Interact Club: Recently I ran for a position on the interact club board and won the Vice President position. I play a key role in partnering with the president to contact Keizer Rotary to take part in our first community service project. This role has prepared me to be a leader because everyone looks up to me and looks to me for advice and updates on what's going on within the club.

•Sophomore Class President: This past year I have been the sophomore class president here at McNary High school. What this role has taught me is that it is a lot of fun to throw a great pep assembly but is also a great deal of work; work that I could personally handle with effort and determination. During my sophomore class presidency I influenced our class to want to participate and be at school with my leadership as well as the help from my class reps.

 

2. List the activities you plan go do this next year.

     This next year I plan on playing volleyball once again because I enjoy the sport and have a lot of fun playing it. I also plan on rerunning for the interact club VP because I like to stay involved with the community and make differences not only inside of McNary but also within the community. Finally I plan on continuing in leadership whether or not I am elected into a position so I can stay involved with all of the fun events McNary has to offer.

 

3. Why do you want to be an ASB officer?

     I want to be our next Junior class president because I want to lead our class into a positive year and keep everyone motivated. Junior year is a hard year so I want everyone in our class to be able to have as much fun as we can while also staying in tune with school. I am also very interested in planning our junior prom for next year since I've always wanted to since I saw my sister plan it her junior year here at McNary as well. Finally I want to run for this position because I've had a lot of fun doing the same for my sophomore year and want to continue this and take on even bigger projects as our junior class president.

 

4.    What qualifications or experiences do you have for the office for which you have applied?

    I'm fairly qualified for this position because this past year I have been the role of sophomore class president and I know how everything with the classes works since I've done it before. I also know that as a junior class president you are in charge of prom which I would love to do. I have already planned a huge event and executed it well; this event being talent show my freshmen year. This experiences have helped me qualify for what it takes to become McNary's junior class president.

 

5. Do you have any suggestions for the school's activity program or for the office you're running for?

     I think that we should make students hyped to come to events by offering incentives much like McMinnville high school does. We could give a free tshirt to the 20th person to buy a ticket at a basketball game or just small things like that. As well as it is very important to get a good DJ. Getting a good DJ makes kids want to come to dances like homecoming and prom! For the position I'm running for I think it is important to get the juniors and seniors opinion on what the theme for prom should be. That way they feel like they are really apart of the planning process.

6. Do you agree to take ASB leadership class as an elective next year?

Yes, of course.

ASB candidate: Tyler Sorenson

I will be running for the position of Junior Class President

1.   List past activities and describe how they have prepared you to be a leader.

Threw out my years of high school, and life in general, i have been given and taken the advantage of many opportunities to show my leadership abilities. last year in 2014 i was in McNarys leadership program, and i was an elected official in the position of a Freshman Representative. Throughout that year i had to lead the freshman class into getting involved in the school and with school spirit. i had to not only lead the class to success, but i had to lead them out of the fear of failure. other things that i have done to show this leadership talents is that this will be my 10th year of playing baseball. in any sport, any game or anything, a leader is extremely necessary. i pride myself in taking that leadership position in the team and in any role presented to me.

 

2. List any activities you plan to do next year.

i plan on partaking in baseball, the leadership program, and FBLA

 

3. Why do you want to be an ASB officer?

this year i made a mistake. i decided that i would not run for a position on the ASB board and i would participate in other committees such as the elections and the spirit committee, the two i was in this year. although my time this year working for these committees has been fun and productive, i learned that there is no position in the leadership program that can match the thrill and the feeling, of being a class official. my biggest concern, aside from grades, in high school is to get my class to be the most spirited in the school. and in order for me to maximize my ability to do this this is the position that is right for me. i want to make a difference, in myself, in others, and in my class.

 

4. What qualifications or experiences do you have for the position in which you have applied?

 

In the 2014 year i was an elected official for the freshman class so i have the experience of being an elected official and i know the ropes of the Executive Council. this is also my second year in the McNary leadership program, so i am highly qualified for the position.

 

5. Do you have any suggestions for the schools activity program or for the office you're running for, for the 2015-2016 year?

 

For the activity program i think that it may be necessary to do a complete reboot of the system and the way we do things and start from scratch. start new with social media, event planning, the whole system. another thing we should improve on is the way we advertise. the word of our events doesn't get out in the most effective way and it could be done in a more effective manner. for the class of 2017 i have many spirit ideas that i would love to implement.

 

6. Do you agree to take ASB leadership class as an elective next year (2015-2016) and partake in ALL relating activities?

 

I agree to taking the ASB leadership class as an elective in the 2015 year and i agree to attened all ASB activities.

ASB Candidate: Ryan Wagner

 

I will be running for: Sophomore president

 

1__ List your past activities and describe how they have prepared you to be a leader.

 

                I have taken many activities that have taught me to be a leader, but the main three is Leadership, Boy Scouts, teaching at my church, and Relay for Life. Leadership has taught me to be a leader because it has taught me the different aspects of being a leader. Leadership has taught me about vision, integrity, communication, organization, and many other aspects of being a leader and working with others. It has also helped me lead the freshmen through assemblies and other school activities as Freshmen Rep. Boy Scouts has taught me work with people with other views and who don’t agree with me. I was the patrol leader in Boy Scouts, which means I was in charge of my group in my troop. Being a patrol leader taught me to compromise and to work with other people who weren’t all that agreeable with, and how to still be productive and to keep moving forward with those people on my team. Also, there is Relay for Life, and how that has taught me to be a leader. In Relay for Life, I always help everybody in anyway I can, but working at the concession stand at homecoming took the most leadership skills out of all the activities I have done with Relay for Life. When you are working at a concession stand, you have to communicate with the other people you are working, while you are being told what other people want.  Finally, there is teaching at my church. Every Thursday, and once or twice a month on Sundays, I teach kids at my church. This includes me teaching a story, leading them in songs, helping them with crafts, and just leading them through other situations with other kids. This has helped me become a leader because I have to teach little kids, and we all know that actually teaching a class takes a lot of leadership skills. These are all the different activities I have done to prepare me to be a leader.

 

 

2.   List any activities you plan to do this next year.

 

                This next year, I plan to continue many activities and start some new ones. I plan to continue, inside of school, Leadership class and Relay for Life, and outside of school, I plan to continue Boy Scouts, teaching at my church, and piano class. I also plan to start new activities inside of school. Next year I plan to join choir, drama, and maybe even camera classes. These are the activities I plan to continue, start, and do next year as a Sophomore.

 

3.   Why do you want to be an ASB officer?

 

                I want to be an ASB officer next year mostly because of the experience. I want to improve my leadership skills and ways to work with others. I also want to get my class pumped up some more, because I had a lot of fun doing it this year. I also want to teach other student in my class to set goals for themselves and to reach those goals.

 

 

4.   What qualifications or experience do you have for the office for which you have applied?

 

                 I have been a Sunday school teacher at Dayspring Fellowship since 6th, and plan to keep doing it for as long as I can. It has taught me to be patient with everybody and ow to plan and lead kids through different tasks. Another qualification is being Freshmen Rep. This has taught the different aspects of being a leader and how to plan, organize, and go through a project. Boy scouts has also taught me how to work with different people, no matter how difficult they are. These are the different experiences and qualifications for me being Sophomore president.

 

 

5.   Do you have any suggestions for he school’s activity program or for the office you’re running for, for the 2015-16 year?

 

                I want to get the students more pumped up at assemblies. I want to put a suggestion box open to all class of 2018 members that are for suggestions for fundraisers and assembly theme ideas, so they feel like they have a say in the decisions that effect them. Also, I have some fundraiser ideas like a sports match night, I don’t know what sport yet, or maybe a movie night.

 

 

6.   Do you agree to take ASB leadership class as an elective next year (2015-2016) and partake in ALL relating activities?

 

                Yes I do.
