Sam Cross, ’19, will be the ASB secretary. He will take notes during ASB meetings and create agendas.

“Hi I’m Sam Cross and I am running for the position of Associated Student Body Secretary. I am a senior here on campus and I have attended Fresno Christian for six years. Last year, I had no intentions of joining leadership or running for an ASB position, but I want to leave a lasting and positive legacy on this campus, and leadership provides a platform for such aspirations.

“If provided with the privilege of becoming the secretary, my desire is to have a more inclusive stance on others’ perspectives and ideas both in the leadership class and in the hallways.

“Traditionally secretaries are responsible for maintaining the bulletin board found at the front entrance of the school. The board was only maintained partially during the last school year, I plan to consistently keep the board up-to-date so that it can be used as a reliable source of campus news.

“Many art students on campus create amazing pieces of artwork, but I have found that the only way to appreciate their creations is to visit Mrs. Belmont’s art class. I see an excellent opportunity to showcase student’s artwork each week on the bulletin board.  

“Finally, I dedicate my senior year to positively impacting those around me and creating a healthier culture on campus. If elected I hope that the students, teachers and my leadership peers will hold me accountable for what I have set out to do and the values I stand for. Thank you for your time.”

Cross seeks to better the campus if his peers elected him as secretary. Secretaries are responsible for documenting student leadership meetings and presides over meetings in the circumstance that both the president and vice president are absent.

“I’m Kamryn Schultz and I’m running for Vice President. I am the only candidate for this position, therefore you should vote for me despite the qualifications I may or may not have. I love this school; I’ve attended here since 6th grade, and it brings me so much joy to see everyone has grown up and everything we’ve accomplished.

“Here’s what I love about FCS: I love the small environment, I love the ability to talk about God freely, and the opportunity to participate in many events I wouldn’t have been able to elsewhere.

“I’m super excited about this year and I will do my best to serve you, the student body, to the best of my ability. Even though being vice president seems like a secondary role, I see it as more than that. I see it as an opportunity to exercise my giftings in the area of leadership and point people to Christ in the place that I care about the most. So vote for me, Kamryn Schultz, as your Vice President.”

The Vice-President shall share the duties and responsibilities of the President. The Vice-President shall chair the Academic Affairs Committee, and shall be the officially appointed student representative of the Academic Committee.
