LEADERSHIP AND ELECTED OFFICES
Head of the Athletic Association (Grade 12)
Athletic Head is one of the prestigious seven head of school positions unique to Smartsville School. The seven heads of school are the primary student leaders elected by the students to serve as representatives of the school. I lead daily school assemblies; run the fall, winter, and spring sports awards; meet with the Athletic Director, Assistant Athletic Director, Coaches, Head Mistress, and the Dean of Students on behalf of the student body; and lead all students in daily sports practices and games.
Dorcas Head (Grade 11)
The Dorcas Society fundraises for a wide range of charitable organizations with funds raised each year at the annual Dorcas Fair. Under the leadership of the three Dorcas Heads, of which I was third head, each year the entire junior class works for many months to make decorations for the fair, to create crafts to sell, and to organize a silent auction, skits, and games. We also work on related fundraising activities. I was responsible for leading and organizing the junior class in these endeavors. During my year as a Dorcas Head our class broke the Dorcas Fair record by raising $14,180. Recipient charities included Doctors without Borders, Shriner’s Children’s Hospital, and the Alzheimer’s Association, among several other local charities.
