Stephanie Pavlasky, President 

My name is Stephanie Pavlasky and I am the Student Council President. I am a senior, finally. Some of my hobbies are playing soccer, binge-watching bad Netflix originals, and hiking with friends. In the future, I hope to pursue pharmacy or major in biomedical sciences. My favorite things about Student Council are all the wonderful people that are apart of it and the great things we do for our school and community. I'll never forget all the memories the council makes together and my forever friends, also the advisors (just a little). #IGotJokes… I'm not quite sure how to end this so I'll leave you with a quote… "What is funnier than 24?.... 25."
