2. Braden Wong
Hello fellow Apaches! My name is Braden Wong, and I'm running to be your Sophomore Class President! As your current Freshman class president, it has been the greatest honor serving you in our first year at Arcadia High School! For me, this year has not only been a blast, but also a great incredible journey through which I have learned, sought, and improved personally as a leader and person. Over my term as President and graduation from the prestigious Boy Scout NYLT leadership program, I have learned that the most crucial characteristic of a leader is not simply planning or bossing people around; rather, it is the ability to unite and bring out the best in everyone solving problems and accomplishing goals. I have worked hard, taking pride in assisting and supporting all ASB functions, clubs and athletics events whenever possible (especially our Ice Skating Bonding Event!), with an enthusiastic cheerful spirit my Boy Scout heritage has instilled within me. For me, this is not merely a reelection, and not about power, fame, nor glory, but an opportunity to continue serving you, the Class of 2020, with honor and satisfaction of a job well done. Thank you so much! ^v^

2. Brandon Luc Hey there! My name is Brandon Luc, and I am running to be your Sophomore Class Vice President! The reason for candidacy is that I want to take part in ASB primarily to help our school thrive as a community. To be able to bring our school closer together is what makes Arcadia High School so special! Although a large population, I believe that each student has a purpose in our microcosm. Therefore, maintaining a solid relationship between every member of our high school is essential. That is what inspires me to join ASB; it links every aspect of our school in order to provide a robust environment for everyone. There are several reasons why I believe I qualify for this position. I am eager to socialize with anyone which makes me easy to approach and befriend! I care profoundly of completing any task. I also understand the importance of the dedication and responsibilities of being a member of our student body. As once a WEB leader, I wish to pursue in being of assistance, no matter the challenge at hand. In short, I am impelled to be of service and to make 2017-2018 a great year for all of us!

As ASB Vice President , I will fully commit myself to serving the general will of my fellow students. I also have experience serving on ASB as ASB President of Dana Middle School and ASB President of Cedar Bluff Elementary (though I doubt any of you will recognize the latter); however, all of that is in the past. Let us start a new chapter of cooperative student government excellence by voting for me, Stephen Dai, for the position of Sophomore Class Council Vice President!
6. Brenda Vuong
HEY CLASS OF 2020!!! As the first part of this new chapter in our lives comes to end, let's take a moment to look back at all those memories. On the first day of school, we were confused, insecure freshmen. Then, we experienced our first finals week and we all underwent these levels of stress that we didn't even know could be reached. Flash forward a few months later and here we are. We're still stressed, but we're comfortable with this previously "intimidating" environment. I, myself, happen to be so comfortable that I've decided to take the risk and run to be your Sophomore Class Vice President. With my past three years of experience in ASB at Dana Middle School and Camino Grove Elementary School, my leadership, organizational, and time management skills have greatly developed. I am also on the Frosh Girls Volleyball Team, so I know how to work well as a team with the other ASB members to plan some LIT bonding events and fundraisers. It'd be wrong for you to not vote for Brenda Vuong!! Thank you. (":
Sophomore Senator
1. David Ju Hi Class of 2020! My name is David Ju, and Iím running to be your Sophomore Class Senator! Freshman year is almost coming to an end! A year full of confusion, stress, and fun. As the year progressed, I felt more and more connected to our Apache family. We do not just attend the same school, but rather, we are all part of a family.

I am responsible, hard-working, outgoing, and will invest all my time into making sure that your sophomore year is amazing and unforgettable!

As Sophomore Class Senator, I promise to do everything in my power to make your sophomore year extraordinary and memorable as a part of the Apache family. Thank you!

Sophomore Treasurer

1. John Chen
Hello everyone, my name is John Chen, and I am running for the position of Sophomore Class Treasurer next year. I believe that I have the particular skill set for this position. I am in Algebra 2 Honors; however, a candidate should of this position should not be judged by their math skills, but that is not to say that a candidate should have relatively decent math skills. Leadership, I believe, is the fundamental skill that an ASB officer must hold, and I have that component within me. I guess I should start talking about my achievements like many of the other applicants. I received first place in the event of Meteorology in Science Olympiad last year in the Division B championships for Southern California. I have also placed in both middle and high school (this year and last year) in FBLA for a variety of events. Finally, I was the coach of an First Lego League team that was able to go to the LA Championships this year. These achievements are not meant to brag but rather help you voters get a better picture of who I am. Remember vote for me! Thank you.

2. Roshan Kannan
Hello fellow Apaches! My name is Roshan Kannan and I will be running for your Sophomore class Treasurer! For those of you who don't know me, I am that short, cute, Indian kid who likes to talk that you always hear about. For those of you who do know me, you would know that I am that short, cute, Indian kid who likes to talk, but I am also much more beyond that. First off, I am extremely hard-working. When I put my mind to something, I will get it done. I never say I'll do something, and then not do it. Secondly, I am open-minded and I am always up for suggestions. If you have a suggestion to make our great school even better, I will tell the rest of ASB and I will work hard to make it come true. Next, I am extremely experienced in student council. I was in office during all but one term during middle school and elementary school. Most importantly, I have the passion and desire to make Arcadia High School a better place and I truly believe I can. Remember, I'm 5 foot 2 and the right Treasurer for you!

3. Lidia Qaladh
Hello Class of 2020! My name is Lidia Qaladh and I am running for the position of Sophomore Treasurer.

Hello, my name is Olina Chang and I will be running for the position of Class Girls' Relations. Some reasons that I would like to run for candidacy include the belief that I can be a help to the sophomore class of 2020 as well as someone who could possibly make a change at the school. If asked, many people would describe me as responsible, caring, and passionate. I, myself, am very outgoing and sociable when faced with any environment. My time management skills are quite surprising due to the fact of balancing both marching and cross country, two of the most time consuming sports on campus, all while maintaining school work. Though I may not have any past experiences with ASB, I believe that this can be a good experience I can learn and benefit from.

5. Enoch Zhu Hello, my name is Enoch Zhu and I am running for the position of Class of 2020 Girls Relations. Some traits that qualify me to be in this position is that I love to bond with others and Iím very organized. Knowing that I love to bond, I will make sure that I acknowledge every student in the Class of 2020. Also considering that I am very organized, I can plan many bonding and spirit events. Furthermore, I believe that having a position in ASB means that you should have some leadership skills. During my last year in middle school I had the opportunity to learn many leadership skills in an organization called WEB. But why is a BOY like me running for a girl's position? With almost all my extended family members being girls, I feel that I can understand girls better. I also see them many times a week and listen to their complaints and compliments. With the traits bonding, organization, and leadership, I believe I am the perfect candidate for this position.
