It is exciting to announce that GV’s very own Student Council has received special recognition as a 2019 National Gold Council of Excellence by the National of Student Council (NatStuCo). The leaders of STUCO were thrilled to have achieved this incredible feat, and President Julia Kinnee expressed her sentiment, saying “I’m so proud of our council for receiving this award. We have worked extremely hard this year to serve our community through different service events and fundraisers and it is great to see all of our hard work pay off.” Several of the other STUCO officers, such as Tori Clayton, Scott Lehrfeld, Christine Palmer, Sydney Pyon, Lauren Bagley, and Derek Brown were also just as excited to have been given such remarkable acknowledgment, and all agreed that their endeavors and hard work as a integral council at GVHS has surely paid off.
The members of STUCO are thankful both for the large amount of support from the Garnet Valley community during Minthon and other important events they orchestrate, but also for the help and supervision of faculty Ms. Kimberly Griego-Boruch and Señor Glenn Abrams. Abrams emphasized his delight in working with this group of students, stating, “It is so rewarding to work with such fabulous students. We are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication of our goal-driven student council members, and it is certainly an honor well deserved.”
Regarding the council’s national recognition, Ann Postlewaitee, the student programs director for the National Association of Secondary School Principals, illustrated her joy for GV’s accomplishments. “Receiving a National Gold Council of Excellence Award reflects the highest dedication on the part of the school to providing a strong, well-rounded student council program. NatStuCo applauds the work of the National Gold Councils of Excellence and challenges them to continue their leadership and service to their schools and communities.”
Please take the time to congratulate Student Council for their amazing achievements and all of the hard work they do for our school, district, and community!
