To my fellow Yellow Jackets: it has been an honor to serve as your representative on the PWCS Student Senate this year. I have loved hearing all of your opinions on prominent issues and making your voices heard. Education is undoubtedly one of the most important opportunities we are fortunate to have, and I wanted to use this title to work towards the optimal learning environment you all deserve.
Our school is so unique in many ways, and this is credited to you all as a student body. YOU make OP the great school it is. We are so diverse, yet we still foster a unified, motivated, supportive, and welcoming environment for each other. You can come to OP and expect to find yourself involved with something you're passionate about, and be alongside people who have the same interests as you. We strive to build each other up and push for greater accomplishments. The intelligence and academic performance of our students are merely unmatched, thanks to OP's amazing teachers and resources. The most distinguishing aspect of OP is our students' drive and motivation. Each year our students push harder for greater success, larger impact, and bigger accomplishments. We don't stop pushing, and that's what makes us Yellow Jackets so strong.
Some advice for upcoming/current students: when you graduate, what do you want to be remembered by? When you step through OP's doors on your first day, look for ways to make an impact. Get involved with as many activities as you can to see what you like, and stick with the ones you feel most passionate about. Be a leader in your classes and clubs, and find ways to help ignite positive change. Focus on doing well in your academics. Don't be afraid to seek help from people, and remember to take mistakes as lessons for improvement. But, the biggest thing you have to remember: have FUN. Enjoy yourselves. Don't overwhelm yourself with things you can't handle. A 5.0 GPA is not worth degrading your mental health. You are only in high school for four years, and those years will fly by. Trust me, I speak from personal experience. Go to those football games and all the school dances. Dress all out on spirit days. Capture these great moments in pictures and videos - you truly don't know what you have until it's gone. All these high school things might "seem lame," but you will regret not enjoying yourself when the end comes near. The biggest thing to take out of this: find a balance between your academics and social life - everything will work out the way it's meant to be in the end. Trust me.
Advice for a future senator: you are going to be so grateful for this opportunity. This is a huge deal - YOU were chosen among many applicants - so take advantage of it while you can. As a senator, it is so important to have good communication skills with everyone around you. Make yourself open to talk to as many people as you can. Use social media, put up flyers, announcements, and surveys so that you are ensuring the students you represent that you hear their voices. Talk to your admins and teachers. They are going to be so helpful to provide you with a better perspective of our school. Being OP's senator means you represent OP - which means you are the voice for the students and faculty as well. You also should come into the position with several ideas and a plan - positive change can't happen unless you have a clear idea. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone! This position will challenge you to advocate for different issues in our county and it requires you to speak up. It may be intimidating, but the impact you will make will be so worth it.
