Congratulations to newly elected Student Council officers and grade representatives at Thomas L. Marsalis Elementary School. Student constituents, parents, faculty and staff celebrated the 2012-2013 Student Council Induction Ceremony today.
Preparation for this day began early this Fall after students studied the electoral process and participated in a spirited campaign season. Then on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, in step with the national election day, the Marsalis Mustangs held two elections.
First in a mock Presidential Election, students voted for national candidates who were on the Texas ballot. The voting process was authentic, from issuing voter registration cards to casting ballots in boxes.
Using the same voting procedure in the second election, students voted in the following representatives:
President Blair Ingram-Everett
Vice President Kenneth Murry
Secretary Nevaeh Webb
Treasurer Celeste Sorrells
Historians Reanna Carter
Student Council Members
Kendall Bass Kevin Lopez
Ruth Briones Isaac Navarette
Jovanny Escuadra Britanny Pecina
Kyndle Empy Jada Pope
Deekayla Henderson-Hurd Mason Price
Jalon Johnson Cindy Ramos
Ahriyana Jones Lee Yeap
In addition to their oath of office, student leaders repeated:
Today I will serve,
And be the best that I can be.
I will respect and do good for others.
I will respect and do good for me.
Special Thanks to Ms. T. Simpson and Ms. T. Ingram, Student Council sponsors and to all Marsalis Elementary faculty and staff who serve our students.
Principal Kimberly M. Richardson is the campus instructional leader.
Thomas L. Marsalis is one of a few elementary schools where a Student Council is maintained to develop student leaders for service to the school and community.
