An interview with Anika Salva, who will serve as next year’s ASB Vice President.
What inspired you to run for office?
I was inspired to run for office after being the class president this year and being in ASB these past few years. Seeing the positive impact I could have on the student body at Leigh motivated me to run for an ASB position in order to represent the students here and support them as best I can.
What are some of your plans and ideas for next year?
Next year I want to make Rivalry Week and Week of Welcome more full of spirit and activities because they both have so much potential to be really exciting weeks. I think that by adding some rallies and other events we could also create a more memorable year with plenty of things to look forward to. I also want to focus on publicity to the student body so that everyone is aware of spirit days and events going on.
What do you feel is the biggest problem at Leigh, and do you have any ideas of how to combat this issue?
I feel like the biggest problem at Leigh is encouraging everyone to participate. Often times because of lack of communication or motivation, we have low participation at events and spirit days. I want to make sure that everyone can participate someway by having simpler spirit days that are easy to dress up for or better publicized events for example. I also think that using feedback from the student body could help resolve this issue.
What is one of your favorite memories from your time in high school?
One of my favorite memories from my time in high school was Winterball my freshman year. I remember having a lot of fun and really enjoying the entire experience!
