Recently inducted student body president at CCHS prepares for the school year
Being Student Body President at Christopher Columbus High School is a highly demanding job that entails various important tasks. Ethan Gaunaurd, Senior, has been preparing for this challenge since his sophomore year.
The Student Activities Committee (SAC) at CCHS is in charge of facilitating memorable events like pep rallies and dances for the students. Like every club, SAC has a president. This year, that president is Ethan Gaunaurd, and he has been making sure that he is qualified for the task.
Some qualities of a great leader include passion, courage, bravery. In addition, some might argue that the most important quality of a leader is being well-organized.
“I’ve been a part of SAC since my sophomore year at Christopher Columbus and, personally, I feel that the most important part is being well-organized,” said Ethan Gaunaurd. In order to do just that, Ethan makes sure that he finishes all of his assignments on time and does not allow projects to stack up.
“He’s very patient and works well with me. He’s very soft spoken, and isn’t your typical teenager,” said Ms. Anneris Cedeño, Moderator of SAC.
But Ethan’s responsibilities do not end there, he also has a job alongside his Vice President Sean Dawson, helping create Nickelodeon’s hit show I Am Frankie.
Throughout the filming of this very popular show, Ethan worked very hard on many tasks. “We had Ethan working many jobs. He was working so well with the heads of the departments that it got to the point where these people were begging me to bring Ethan back to work with them,” said Mr. Eric Gaunard, Father of Ethan and Executive Producer of I Am Frankie.
Sean Dawson, Vice President of SAC, plays a recurring character on the show and expressed that Ethan’s work ethic is unrivaled, “Whenever I would see Ethan, he was always so busy that I barely even had time to say hello. He was always doing something and was never free.”
As Ethan begins his run as president, he looks to set himself apart from previous leaders.
One thing that is so difficult about being the president of SAC is how hard it is to stay original. The reason why it is so difficult is because there are not many new events that could be hosted by Columbus. Ethan strives to keep annual events, such as Homecoming and Beach Bash, original.
