Elizabeth Bolin quizzed the newly-elected Student Government president about his plans and expectations for next year.  Read Grant Noble’s comments below.

Why did you decide to run for Student Body President?

I applied for this position because I always wanted to be involved in student government.  I feel that I can make positive changes on the school by upholding our core values and giving those not in student government a voice. I think it’s really important that the student body has a big role in affecting what happens with our school.

Did you speak to Stephen Lovell or any of the other past presidents for tips on how to win?

I only talked to former president Stephen Lovell asking him if I should run; however, I did not ask him for any tip of winning.

What was your reaction when you heard you won?

I was very excited when I heard I won.  I knew that if I lost I could’ve ran for senior class president and win that as Andrew and I were the only competitors for both spots.  It was a win-win situation for me. I plan on working closely with Andrew and the rest of student government to make next year successful.

What all went into the campaign process?

The campaign process was mainly coming up with a unique idea to portray my speech.  I knew I wanted to make it memorable so I came up with idea of writing a poem.

 What are your goals for next year?

I have many goals for next year and plans, but being new to student government I still need to understand the process to what I will be able to do and not do.  I have a great team of people to work with and will be able to generate many new ideas.

Do you have any advice for underclassmen who are interested in running?

Some advice for underclassmen thinking about running for student government in general is to definitely run.  You have nothing to lose and it is alway better to take risks.
