On Wednesday October 21st, Holyoke High School will hold elections for the class of 2019 Student Government representatives. Student Government is a group made up of all students from all grades (9th-12th) to attend meetings about what’s going on in Holyoke High, create events for students to attend, and to organize fundraisers to raise money for the school.

When you choose to become a member of such an important association, you are responsible for fulfilling specific duties assigned: attending and participating in events and fundraisers and of course being a role model for fellow students at Holyoke High. To be able to run for any of the positions available, the student has to receive twenty-five student signatures on a nomination form, and has to have a good record. (No form 2’s, etc.)

On Wednesday, all ninth graders will vote for the students they want to represent them as members of Student Government. The nine freshmen and what they’re running for are listed below.

Tessa Moriarty is running for Class Martial
