Social media was a huge part of the campaign process for candidates, and it has shown in this election. Sophomore candidates such as Sydney Williams and Zion Wright have grown to popularity through their social media presence.

“You can’t win an election without putting yourself out there and knowing your people,” said Sophomore, Zion Wright.

Senior representative, Eva Cheraisi, has been part of the student council since she was a freshman, and is eager to continue her involvement.

“Last year we couldn’t have one due to COVID, so it was really nice that I could have one last student council election before I graduate,” said Cheraisi.

Many students showed their creativity through creating campaign Instagram stories and helping nominees create their slogans.

Wright’s use of a social media campaign helped him secure the spot of Sophomore class representative.

Wright’s reasoning behind a more prominent social media campaign over the traditional, he said “I recognize that people my age couldn’t care less about posters, they want something that they can follow and is easy to get behind. That’s why I used social media to campaign, it was the most effective.”
