Lewiston High School’s 2017-2018 Associated Student Body (ASB) officers have started the year off with a bang. The new officers include ASB President Mason Bartholomei, Vice President Brooke Chase, Secretary Eden Gibbs and Treasurer RaeAnn Kirk, all seniors.

Bartholomei kicked off the school year with a knockout assembly on the first day of school, Aug. 23. With vigor and excitement in his voice, Bartholomei led each class through the LHS fight song, in hopes of uniting the school.

“Entertaining people is important to me,” he said.

The role of ASB president consists mainly of running meetings, and making sure school events run smoothly, such as Golden Throne and Battle of the Bridges.

Vice President Chase has participated in school leadership for as long as she can remember, which greatly contributed to her 2017-2018 campaign.

“We don’t expect any recognition, we just enjoy making students happy,” Chase said humbly.

As vice president, Chase’s main role is to assist the president in leading student body events.

“Brooke and I have worked in ASB together for a long time, she helps me a lot, and I really depend on her,” said Bartholomei.

Secretary Gibbs loves how involved leadership members are.

“As an ASB officer you get so many opportunities to serve others, and simply reach out to people in the community,” said Gibbs. She added that she wants to make a positive impact on the community around her.

As secretary, her job is mainly to take notes and record everything that is said at student council meetings.

Treasurer Kirk is in charge of school funds for activities such as Homecoming. Whenever the school spends money on things such as spirit items, school dances, or sporting events like Golden Throne, it is her job to record where that money goes.

“I joined ASB because I love being part of the student council and leadership,” Kirk said. “I wanted to continue my involvement […] It challenged me to break out of my shell, meet new people, and be a leader.”
