The school year is coming to a close; however, SHS clubs and organizations must go on so that they can continue smoothly after three short months of summer.

Transitions are taking place in many clubs especially through elections of new officer positions.

The Unified for Uganda Club (U4U) has chosen and positioned new officers for the 2018-19 school year. President Molly Ferguson, 11, was not unexpected as she was President in Training (PIT) throughout this year.

In addition to a new president, the club needed new officers and made forms to be filled out and submitted regarding which position someone wanted and why they would be a great contribution to the U4U committee.

Positions available were President in Training, Sponsorship Coordinators, Class Representatives for each grade, Secretary, Publicity Managers, Fundraising Coordinators, and Merchandise Sales Manager.

The forms were due April 19 and were available for a couple weeks in room 137 to pick up and submit.

Through careful consideration these officers were chosen:
PIT- Gaby Pereda, 9
Sponsorship Coordinators- Juniors Nick Dooley, Holly Giese, Riley GIbson, Caitlyn Jarrett, Hannah Lee, and sophomore Marilene Van den Berg
Secretary- Emily Kremchek, 11
Publicity Managers- Juniors Marlee Treta and Grace Hall
