Are you aware of what Student Council actually does? No? That’s ok, I don’t either. But I’m willing to learn, and what’s more, I’ll make sure you come along for the ride. As secretary, I will ensure that what goes on in those mysterious meetings is easily accessible to the rest of the world, or at least to those of you Swatties who might have the remotest interest. For those of you who do know what’s going on and have your own interesting, wacky, or otherwise unusual ideas, I will ensure your opinions are taken into account by the Student Council. After all, who can keep anything quiet around here, right? The key is to be heard by the right people in the position to take action, and as Student Council member, I will make sure that happens. –Tiffany Lee
