Students often confuse Leadership and Student Class Council; while both clubs are responsible for planning school-related events, there are many differences between them.

“Leadership is the student government of the school — we are a group of kids who run school spirit. We’re like the connection to the administration. It’s like a family, I love working with others to better the school we all go to,” senior Jackson Wise said.

Leadership represents the entire student body, while the Class Councils represent only one grade level. Sophomore Class Council, for instance, is in charge of cleaning up the school and having minor fundraisers whereas their junior counterparts are in charge of planning prom and raising the money for it.

“Student council is more of an extracurricular; usually each council is in charge of their own grades. Sophomore [Class Council] usually just does extra help for the school, like gardening. We are also in the process of creating a memorial for Dr. Dale Phillips who recently passed,” said Sophomore Class Council member Gaby Parente.

As a student council member progresses to the next year, they begin to take on different responsibilities.

“All of our fundraising for Junior Class Council is for prom. Since prom [costs] so much money, all of our fundraising contributes to that. We are in charge of what food there will be, so we go to a tasting. We pick out sashes, crowns, prom court, invitations, and the prom’s theme,” Junior Class Council member Mason Nash said.

Another event organized by JCC is the annual Powderpuff game, one of the school’s largest fundraisers. In addition to this, they design and sell the class t-shirts and the Valentine’s Day fundraiser in which roses are sold and delivered.

Class Council’s main goal is to support their own class, while Leadership supports the student body — therefore, there is almost a competition between advocating for the class and student body. If a student wants to be more involved with helping out their individual class and help support prom, then they are recommended to consider Class Council. If they want to be involved in pep rallies and all things school spirit, Leadership may be a stronger fit for them.

Junior Caden Reeves said, “Leadership is an energetic alternative to Class Council, because we are in charge of school spirit of the entire student body, instead of just our class. We are in charge of pep rallies which is so fun and carefree and everyone has a good time.”
