As the school year winds down, and the Class of 2018 gets ready to leave their legacy behind, a new President of Student Council must be elected. After weeks spent preparing posters and platforms, juniors Rosie Rothschild, Ethan Berman, and David Radvany-Roth delivered their speeches in front of the underclassmen last week on April 11th. While the elections are now over and voting has closed, Type One spoke with each of the candidates to shed some light on their academic, extracurricular, and personal lives that helped them excel and made them qualified to run for the esteemed position.

Rosie Rothschild is an experienced candidate who knows she has what it takes to be Student Council President, for she currently serves as the Vice President. She is a pivotal player on both the varsity soccer and lacrosse teams, where she plays midfield and defender, respectively. Beyond sports, she has been involved in a plethora of extracurricular activities, including The Crestian Yearbook and Type One, enthusiastically proclaiming that “page-designing is super fun.” In terms of her journalistic exploits, she shared that her favorite aspect is learning unique things about her peers and the Pine Crest community. Her goals for her presidency include “extending school spirit beyond homecoming week to boost attendance at concerts, games, and Playing for a Change to make a more exciting Pine Crest.” Her school spirit is pervasive, spreading endlessly among her classmates, and, when asked about her favorite part of her Pine Crest experience, she explains that it is her friends who have taught her so much outside of the classroom.

Ethan Berman, boosted to school-wide fame for his bold gesture of promposing immediately after giving his speech, feels that “he knows what everybody wants,” having been a student onlooker into student government. He hopes that widely accepted ideas he has observed throughout his high school years should be brought to the attention of the school. When asked about his extracurricular engagements, he told us that he loves to “help underprivileged elementary school kids learn to read and write” as part of the Achieve Miami community service organization, attend DECA competitions, and pass bills at the annual Harvard Model Congress conference in Boston. Among his many popular ideas, Ethan plans to “reorganize lunch seating on special schedules and extend homecoming week.”

After gaining experience in student government by serving as the Junior Class Vice President and “creating the student experience,” David Radvany-Roth says he jumped to “take the opportunity to run for Student Council President.” Outside of student government, David is someone who considers himself to be “super involved in the school,” as a member of the varsity football and lacrosse teams, the student council representative for the Hessed Forum Club, and a volunteer at school who creates projects and enjoys teaching others. David, barring administration’s approval, would like to “try to keep homecoming to a legitimate amount of days and incorporate student’s ideas into what is done,” thus suggesting an open-idea box.

After a day of voting open to current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, Rosie Rothschild ultimately clinched the vote, winning the position of the 2018-2019 Student Council President. All three candidates worked tirelessly to run their campaign and did a great job in getting the rest of the student body involved and interested in student government. The future of Pine Crest Student Council looks bright, and we are excited to welcome Rosie as the newest student leader who will bring forth new ideas to make the Upper School an even more cohesive community for students, teachers, and administrators alike.
