BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - While most of the United States is in full swing election season, the students of Governor Livingston High School concluded an election of their own. On Friday, October 5, the Class of 2022 at Gov. Livingston High School were able to vote for the students who will be leading them for the next year. At the end of the school day, the winners were announced. This year’s Freshman Class President is Jason Rosenberg, the Vice President is Alex Pitt, along with Treasurer Thomas Burke, and Secretary Sebastian Gratson. The elected members are very excited to be participating in student council this year, and can’t wait to start.
Rosenberg has qualities the Class of 2022 likes to see in an officer. For instance, he is an honors student and is a great leader. Rosenberg said, “I ran for [class] president because I have always wanted to represent my peers, and I enjoy being a leader.”
Some exciting changes may be in store for the Freshman Class this year. Not only will Rosenberg listen to his peers’ suggestions, but he also has some ideas of his own. He said, “A specific thing that I am thinking about [advocating for] is that [students who] play a sport do not have to take gym and will instead have a study hall, or another elective.” This idea would likely make many GL athletes happy, since they often get home late, making it harder for them to get their homework done.
Pitt said, “I ran for [Vice President] because I want to be able to make a positive impact [on the Freshman class]. I also [wanted] to be able to fix issues that we come across as the class of 2022, as a whole.”
Pitt said that he wants to “talk to other students about topics and things that bother them, and then go about how we can fix them,” and Rosenberg agrees. Rosenberg, Pitt, and the other officers would love to hear from freshmen in order to make this year the best it can be.
