Congrats to our hard-working Student Council members! Several students walked away with individual awards at Mississippi Association of Student Councils Conference in Oxford last weekend, including:
- Amelie Million, who received Council Member if the Year.
- Richard Springer, who received Outstanding President and the Dale D. Hawdy Leadership Award.
- Shannon Kirkpatrick, who received Best Project for Teacher Secret Santa.
- Principal Buckley also received MSASC Administrator of the Year!
On the individual awards, SPCHS Student Council Sponsor Amber Buckley said, “Richard has been a phenomenal president this year and has led the Student Council to new heights. He is very deserving of Outstanding President as well as the Dale D. Hawdy Leadership Award. He has not only delegated responsibilities to other hard working council members, but he has also lent support as they carried out tasks. He and Vice President, Shannon Kirkpatrick have become a dynamic duo, which in turn reflects onto the motivation and dedication of the Student Council at large. Shannon added to her legacy as an outstanding council member through the implementation of the Teacher Secret Santa, which won Best Project. Both she and Richard presented a workshop discussing this project with student delegates from around the state.
Anna Tran, Amelie Million, Richard Springer, Shannon Kirkpatrick, and Jamie Stanovich presented workshops at the conference.
Finally, Amelie Million and Jamie Stanovich will be St. Patrick’s MSASC representatives for President. They will both give a speech and preside over next year’s conference.
