Fun facts of future ASB officers

Published April 22, 2014

Everyone loves Prom, Powderpuff football, Spirit Week and other school events, yet do students know the people working behind the scenes to make it all happen? The Palo Alto High School student body recently elected the 2014-15 ASB officers by reading each candidate’s election statement, watching their speeches on Youtube and seeing their signs around campus. However, I feel as though this information is not sufficient to really get to know our representatives outside of their official positions. I decided to dig a bit deeper, so let me introduce you to the elected officials of Paly’s 2014-15 ASB.
