The “good morning Northwest, it’s a great day to be a Viking.” The football themes. The school dances. The blood drives. The Christmas families. The Pennies for Pasta. All of these activities and more are planned by the Northwest student council, and the person heading them all up is student body president Kyle Tharrington, who answered a few questions about his role at Northwest.

Q: What’s your role as the student body president?

A: My role as student body president would be to organize school events that are put on by Mr. Wertz, administrators and leaders of the school, and to coordinate these events through social media, the announcements and different aspects throughout the school.

Q: How did you get involved with student government?

A: It initially began as something I had hoped could bolster my college resume back during freshman year, so I attempted to be in student council earlier in my high school career. Then, being class president junior year, I got engaged with student council and fell in love with it. Since then, I’ve been doing it as part of a passion.

Q: What’s your favorite memory from student council?

A: Definitely my favorite memory from student council would be this past summer. My fellow officers and I did a freshman orientation video. It took a lot of work going into it, but the video turned out great. The administrators and the families at freshman orientation loved it.

Q: Do you have any advice for anybody who’s thinking about running for student council or running for student body?

A: If you’re contemplating running for any student office, I would absolutely do it. You have to put in work to do it, but it’s a great time. You get a large influence over the school, and it can really help you in the future when applying for college.

Q: Do you have any future plans involving student government in college?

A: I would absolutely love to be involved in student government in college, too. I know it’d be a lot harder to do because there’s a lot more student in college then at Northwest, but it’s definitely a goal of mine to be engaged in student government in college.
