Ms. Stephenson, the ASB advisor and US history teacher, has recently left on maternity leave. In her place, Mr. Lion will be the long-term substitute for the remainder of the school year.

With Ms. Stephenson being gone, members of the ASB class have really had to step up their game. Ms. Stephenson was at the forefront of OA by heading ASB and instructing student leaders on how to lead a student body. Besides making sure ASB and the entire school were running smoothly, Ms. Stephenson  also planned and scheduled events, attended meetings about the school, and taught the ASB class how to become stronger leaders.

Julia Herrera, the ASB president, says that the class prepared themselves heavily before she left. While Ms. Stephenson is gone, ASB has to plan and put on events for the rest of the year, which means that the responsibilities of the class and the executive board members (Julia Herrera, Robert Jimenez, Alejandra Ramos, and Nathan Calhoun) have increased significantly. According to Herrera, some of the responsibilities now held by herself and the executive board now include: “leading the class in lessons, business meetings, and event planning,” which was normally done by Ms. Stephenson. The entire class is now “expected to pull their own weight,” and work harder as a team in order to be successful for the rest of the year.

Ms. Stephenson will definitely be missed for the remainder of the school year, but Herrera says that she has “full confidence that [the ASB class] will do the best of their abilities,” and I know that, even without an advisor, Julia Herrera will do a great job in leading the school as ASB president for the rest of the school year.

    Good article. I agree, it has to be a challenge to be in ASB without Ms. Stephenson. It’s cool how all the leaders are stepping up their game in the absence of their adviser.

    As always Peyton this was a great article. You have a way of getting straight to the point in a tasteful way that’s not too drawn out or short. I know a few people in ASB who feel a little overwhelmed with all the new responsibilities, but I definitely agree that they will be able to adjust. Keep up the good work;)

    Great Article Peyton! I really feel as though this shows appreciation towards ASB class and how it works.
