Student body elections for the 2015-2016 school year took place on Monday, April 27. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors voted on candidates running for student body president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. The winners are as follows:

President: junior Chase Midyett

Vice president: sophomore Brady Rolig

Secretary: junior Abbie Hughes

Treasurer: sophomore Collin Petigna

Other presidential candidates included juniors Tyler Shurley and Shelby Hudson. The opposing vice presidential candidate was junior Izik Gousseinov and the opposing candidate for treasurer was junior Zac Kornis. Hughes ran unopposed.

Shortly after receiving word of his victory, Midyett said he felt “on top of the world.”

“I feel so awesome right now,” Midyett said. “I love everyone [at Mill Valley,] every single one. [Shurley and Hudson] were some of the hardest candidates anyone would ever have to run against and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.”

According to Rolig, the experience of running for a student body position was “new and fun,” noting his appreciation for his opponent. Next year, he looks forward to his new position on StuCo and leading the school as student body vice president.

“I’m really excited to represent Mill Valley because it’s a great school with great people,” Rolig said. “I’m looking forward to getting to express my ideas and do good things for the school.”

Those who did not win positions as executive officers will now have the opportunity to run for positions as class officers. Elections for the incoming sophomore, junior and senior classes will take place before the end of the school year and incoming freshman class elections will take place at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year. Specific dates have not been announced.

As next year’s student body president, Midyett looks forward to leading the school and encouraging positive changes among the student body.

“Next year, I’m excited about lifting the school’s spirit, planning activities and leading the student body,” Midyett said. “It definitely feels good [to have won].”
