We would like to congratulate Cleo Siderides ’13 on becoming our new student body president. We are proud to have a female student body president, but Siderides’ ideas, diligence, and reliability contributed to her election, not her gender. Another facet of her leadership is her enthusiasm for the Academy, and if students match Siderides’ enthusiasm, it would result in a more united and responsible community.
In the future, we hope that students will make an effort to listen to candidates’ speeches, as they are an opportunity for us to hear what candidates have to say. Because the student body president plays such a significant role in students’ lives, students should strive to be attentive to the future of our community.
