By Janet Hrezo, Student Senate Advisor
The Brevard Center’s new Student Senate has gotten off to a spectacular start this semester. Although the majority of senators are new, they have demonstrated that they have ideas and the skills to make things happen.
Their first major event was the “Halloween Food, Films and Fun” party. Students enjoyed socializing, eating pizza and the choice of watching two different Halloween themed movies. The Halloween Costume Contest was another great hit. Students and staff alike came dressed in costumes and prizes were given to the best student, staff and overall costumes.
The Student Senate also organized a number of events to benefit those in need. A Thanksgiving food drive for a local area food pantry was a huge success. Also, almost $300.00 was raised for Hurricane Sandy relief. Ongoing is an effort to collect donations for “Toys for Tots”.
Thanks to Thomas S., President, Colin Z., Vice-President, Sarah R., Secretary/Treasurer, Harrison D., Ombudsman, and Dave F., Media Manager, for their creative ideas and hard work.
