Bilbrey The banners are down, the fanfare has died away, and the boxes are officially closed. Votes have been counted, and the new student officers for the coming school year have been announced. It was a very jubilant Blake Buhler who greeted the bevy of well-wishers surrounding him. Mr. Buhler, a Business Management student from American Fork, is the new student body president. "I am very pleased that I won the election ; I believe that I can do more for the school than any other candidate that ran, and I believe that by this time next year, this school will be standing on different feet than it is this year as far as student participation, faculty involvement, and all-around attitude is concerned." He emphasized that he would be working on those issues included in his platform. He plans to hold seminars with every club and organization on camput to get their feedback as to what they expect out of the student council. He also plans a big advertising campaign for the clubs. Mr. Buhler especially emphasized general education. "I am going to do everything I can to get general education re-enacted at school," he said. "I really appreciate all the election committee went through," he concluded. Mr. Buhler 's running mate, Laurie Hart, is the new student body vice-president. She is a Legal Assistant major from Provo. Ms. Hart commented on her position. "According to the school constitution, the only duties I have are to do what the president tells me. I'm not going to wait around until Blake tells me what to do. I'm going to go out and do things. I'm going to be a kind of roving council member to oversee everything." Ms. Hart also feels very strongly about the general education issue and vowed to be very active in the lobbying process where it is concerned. She is very optimistic about the coming year. "Both Blake and I are really excited about the prospects for next year. We feel that we have a good council behind us and that the people who were elected are concerned, and good workers. I am really excited about working with the council and the students." Ellen Grotenstein, the new Social Vice-president, is an Accounting major from New York City. When asked about her feelings, she said, "I just hope that now that I am elected that I can do the job that the students expect of me and give them what they want, because that is what the student government is there for." The Cultural Vice-president is Ingrid Logan, a Fashion Merchandising major from Mount Clemens, Michigan. She said, "I am really happy I was appointed the position, and I hope next year all of the student body officers will be able to work together to promote the kind of activities that will get all of the students involved." Randy Kester is a Legal Assistant major from American Fork. He is also the new Student Awareness and Academics Vice-president. "Now the real election thing starts, getting the things passed in the school . I am really looking forward to being the voice for the students, and I hope that they will pass on their suggestions to me." He said. Elissa Poulsen, the Special Events vice-president, is also a Legal Assistant major. She's from Plaistow, New Hampshire.She expressed enthusiasm for the job she has been appointed to do. "I'm just excited about working with the Council and making decisions work for the students in a constructive way. I've always been on the sidelines before and griped like everyone else, and now I can do something about it." "I'm just planning the kinds of things that students like to do, and I am trying to make sure that they know about them. So far, I've got a lot of big ideas." She said further. Sally Hull, the new In-tramurals Vice-president, is a Human Services major from Cedar City. A story about Ms. Hull's idea is on page seven of the Trade winds.
