Although it may not seem like it, the end of the school year is fast-approaching.

For freshmen in the Carlmont leadership class, this meant making the choice of whether or not they should pursue a spot in ASB for the 2017-2018 school year.

In March, freshmen, sophomores, and juniors hoping to join ASB underwent interviews.

The interviewers included Activities Director Jim Kelly and ASB student leaders.

While a handful of candidates were accepted after one interview, others got in after two or three.

If anyone feels like they can positively impact Carlmont in any way, they should consider joining ASB. No matter if they’re loud and popular or shy and quiet. ASB would not be where it is now if there wasn’t such an amazing group of applicants every year.”

— Joe Sison

However, some, like freshman Andrew Shen, did not make it into ASB.

What I learned from ASB interviewing was that you have a lot of competition at hand when applying. You have to really shine against the crowd. I also learned how to deal with the stress of an interview as I have never gone through one before,” said Shen.

People choose to apply to ASB for a variety of reasons; some may enjoy being a leader, while others find a sense of fulfillment by giving back to their school.

Freshman Andres Raddavero said, “I decided to interview because ever since I was little I always liked the idea of planning something and having it end up being something in real life. I had lots of fun doing it in Ralston’s student government and Four-H (a youth development and mentoring organization) and now I’m really excited to do the same in ASB.” 

Many freshmen that didn’t choose to interview because of the large time commitment that comes with being part of ASB are still thankful for the skills they’ve developed in the leadership class.

Freshman Mia Craig, a student currently enrolled in the leadership class, said, “My favorite part of the class is doing activities that teach us lessons that actually help in the real world. I also liked learning that there’s not just one type of leadership and that you don’t have to be loud and outgoing to be a leader.”

Although the process of interviewing can be intimidating and the ASB class itself is time-consuming, students are encouraged to apply for a spot if they feel they can positively contribute to the school.

Freshman Class President Joe Sison said, “If anyone feels like they can positively impact Carlmont in any way, they should consider joining ASB. No matter if they’re loud and popular or shy and quiet. ASB would not be where it is now if there wasn’t such an amazing group of applicants every year.”
