Student Council has announced its new president for the 2016-2017 school year, junior Emma Wenckowski.

As president, Wenckowski says she and the other student council members plan on continuing the theme of a united Lake Zurich for next year.

“One of the things I want to do was that to build off one of our goals this year, [which] was to make Fridays for everyone. I think that the student section did a really great job helping us out with that,” Wenckowski said. “Now that we have that spirit in everyone, let’s start spreading that spirit. A goal that I have is to try to make Fridays for every sport. Not saying that we have to dress up every Friday, but just like make sure that all the clubs and all the sports feel the support that we give football throughout the whole year.”

Wenckowski has been involved in Student Council since her freshman year. She has previously held the position of auction wall chair and vice president of student relations.

“The reason that I wanted to join student council was because I love the school. I just love Lake Zurich,” Wenckowski said. “I wanted to do everything I could to make other people enjoy it just as much as I do. I thought that student council would be the best path to do that.”

Wenckowski’s predecessor, Merrick Howarth, senior, says she will take the leadership skills she has learned as president on into her adult life, while leaving the presidential position to Wenckowski.   

“I know Emma [Wenckowski] really cares a lot about Student Council. She pours a lot of her time into it and I know that she is going to do everything in her power to do a great job next year,” Howarth said. “She really cares about everyone enjoying their experience at the high school, which is important in a student council president because that’s what the role is.”
