Meet Your 2019-2020 Class Government Officers
The sophomore, junior, and senior class government officers were voted for on May 23rd. Here’s what the elected representatives hope to accomplish this upcoming year:
Izzy Lelis: Senior Class President
“I hope to make our last year at SHS the best. Since the beginning of senior year is known to be stressful with college applications, I want to focus on helping the wellness of the seniors and lessen the stress with different events. We are also starting to plan for prom already which is one event that I look forward to greatly!”
Justin Mandel: Senior Class Vice President
“I am looking forward to starting off the year with senior chalking and then planning prom and graduation. While we are nearing our end of our school government careers, we have a lot to do in the final months, all of which is quite exciting. I anticipate it will be another successful and enjoyable year for our class government.”
Margaret Kantor: Senior Class Treasurer
“I am excited to be apart of the class government for our final year. I want to make our last year of high school the best it can be. This coming year, I hope to have as many people as possible to come to government-planned events and enjoy bonding as a class for one last time.”
Gabe Lesser: Senior Class Treasurer
“As treasurer, I hope to continue organizing our budget and preparing for big events senior year, which include grilling at the homecoming game and our prom in May. As part of student government, I am excited for our senior year and hope to plan some fun senior year activities: for instance, maybe a scavenger hunt or a class breakfast. I hope to make our last year of high school super memorable!”
Lily Kronenberg: Senior Class Secretary
“The Junior Class Government organized several successful events this year, and we are looking forward to having many great events next year. In the fall, we will be grilling at all of the football games and helping to plan fun senior traditions, such as designing class t-shirts. We are on track for prom right now, although we still have a lot of planning ahead of us. I am excited to continue working...

I’m super excited to be working with a great group of people in government this year, many of whom I’ve worked with for the past three years. For senior year, I’m excited to plan prom, graduation, and many...
Rishabh Gharekhan: Senior Class House Representative

Andrew Morin: Senior Class House Representative
“I think we have a great group of people elected this year, and I look forward to working with them. I think one of our challenges, especially on the class level, is breaking out of our traditional activities and trying new events and ways to engage other students, so I look forward to trying some new things out next year. I think we have a lot of opportunity to bring people together and relieve...
Michael Waxman: Junior Class President
"Although many say that junior year is a tough year at SHS, I think next year is going to be a great year for the class of 2021. My main goal as president is continuing to host fun and charitable events that unify our grade and include as many people as possible. I know that school can be stressful at times, so these events are crucial for alleviating stress in a healthy way. I plan to have more fun...
Emmett Goldstein: Junior Class Vice President
“While being a junior may be very overwhelming, as members of government, it gives us an opportunity to plan great class bonding events designed around stress relief. Our class events the past two years, the free ice cream party, and the upcoming amazing race, have both been centered around connecting the class and having fun, but going forward I think we should explore events that can help students...
Adam Wasserman: Junior Class Treasurer
“For next year, I’m most excited for our Junior Olympics. The experience of organizing and holding the Amazing Race will give us insight into how to plan the competitive events in Junior Olympics. I would like to plan more community service activities for our class next year. The government should organize bake sales to donate money to charity and also plan hands-on charity events that encourage...
Anya Kornfeld: Junior Class Secretary
“I am incredibly excited for the upcoming year and optimistic that the government will work hard to make it the best year possible. Despite the grim stereotypes that commonly circle junior year, I am faithful that we will be able to bring the grade together and create a positive atmosphere. We look forward to organizing the annual Wizard’s Game and running the barbecue at the school’s carnival—both...
Molly Bochner: Junior Class House Representative
“ Next year, there will be many fun events and I am thrilled to help plan them. These include Junior Olympics, the Wizards Game, and of course our annual class event.

Evan Dershowitz: Junior Class House Representative
“I would say that I am most excited next year for the increased number of responsibilities that I will have as a junior officer. I, along with my fellow class officers, will have to plan class events, cook food at the carnival, have numerous sales, and so much more. An idea I have for next year is to increase the number of sales we have so we can give more money to charity.”
Megan Niu: Junior Class House Representative
“I’m so excited to be one of your house representatives next year! Even though junior year will be stressful, the government will organize lots of fun events. There’s so much to look forward to, like the Harlem Wizards basketball game, food at the carnival, Junior Olympics, and a class event. As house rep, I hope to make next year the best year yet!”

Specifically, I can’t wait to contribute to another...

Along with that, I am thrilled to be able to contribute ideas to better the school and plan awesome events for next year.

Ava Londa: Sophomore Class Secretary
