The Wayne County High School Student Government Association produced their annual Cardinal Variety Show that gave students an opportunity to perform in front of their peers, just before their holiday break. First place winner was Jalen Carroll for his rock n’ roll performance on his electric guitar. Second place winner was Mattea Roysdon for her vocal and guitar performance of ‘Reckless Love’. Third place winner was vocalist and guitarist Lauren Tabler.

There were numerous acts who participated ranging from dancers to singers to musicians to comedians. It was an entertaining event to showcase local talent and give students a chance to be on stage and perform. In addition, the SGA raised over $600 from admission and collected 141 canned good items to be sent to the Hope Center.   

The WCHS Student Government Association is a group that is elected by the student body to represent them. Their main role in the school is to give ideas to the principal and other school administrators on behalf of the student body.

“Our Student Government Association strives toward servant leadership. We are here to be a voice for the student body,” explained SGA Sponsor Darran Vickery.

“Additionally, SGA is a great teaching tool, as our structure, is modeled after the same form of representative democracy that guides our federal government. We are able to transfer the principles we discuss in our Civics course into hands-on, real life experiences,” added Vickery.

“We have hosted events this year such as the Senior Sunrise, The Staff vs Students basketball game, The Club Fair, The Cardinal Variety Show, and our restroom painting projects. We also coordinate all of the games at the pep rallies,” said Keelan Rodriguez, who is the current SGA president.

To be a member of SGA you must be directly elected by the student body. Each grade has five representatives. SGA has twenty-one members. It is twenty-one because the president, which was the president-elect the year prior, takes the office officially after the graduation of the former president. Student government’s current officer team is: President Keelan Rodriguez, President-elect Nicole Hesse, Vice President Tyler Lovett, Secretary Keesha Thompson, and Treasurer Kadence Oliva. SGA has four sponsors which are: Dale Vaughn, Darran Vickery, Heather Bell, and Tiffani Bertram.
