2020-2021 ASB E-Board Members

Emily Chang and Ashley Park

The week leading up to Nov. 7 was one filled with bubbles, glowsticks and bracelets. While not the typical snapshot of a regular week of school, these different items were indicative of something even bigger: ASB’s Executive Board election week. 

After days of serious campaigning by different students for a coveted spot on the eBoard, five students came away with a win. The new 2020 eboard officers are President Nicole Augusta,, Vice President Matthew Krogh, Secretary Maddie Crume, Treasurer Kayla Choate and Ambassador Cami Armendariz. The E-board answered questions about themselves, their goals and their campaigns. 

Nicole Augusta – President 

Q: What was the campaign process like?

A: “It was sort of difficult to come up with things to do because there were so many restrictions, like we couldn’t hang up flyers, stickers or food, so it took away a lot of the ideas. It came down to being creative and who got their name out there the most.”

Q: What are your goals for the year?

A: “This school year, I want to keep West Ranch a place full of spirit and where students feel they belong, and where they’re proud to call West Ranch their school and they feel at home.”

Q: Anything you want the student body to know?

A: “I feel that leading by example is the most important because if you are doing the right thing and getting involved then other people will get involved.”

Q: What are you most excited for as president?

A: “I’m excited to see ASB get closer with each other but also more involved in the school.”

Q: How did it feel to win?

A: “It was really exciting. I was in the middle of practice and my friends saw the list posted and they ran down to the tennis courts, and they told me, and then I screamed.”

 

Matthew Krogh – Vice President 

Q: What do you want to accomplish as Vice President?

A: “I really just want to make everybody at this school feel at home and feel included and build a sense of school spirit. I want to build up more hype for wanting to come here and wanting to come to the games and events.”

Q: Something the student body might not know about you?

A: “I’m a terrible dancer. Like terrible.”

Q: What are you most excited for as vice president?

A: “To build a little bit more school pride amongst everyone at the school, and for ASB and the school to become closer and more of a cohesive group.”

Q: What are your goals for the year?

A: “To get more attendance at games and general events. Not just football games or basketball games, but the band concerts and things like that. I would really like to have more attendance at those.”

 

Maddie Crume – Secretary 

Q: Something the student body might not know about you?

A: “I have a dog named Hazel and she’s really scary. She doesn’t really like me.”

Q: What are your goals for the year?

A: “I want to start inside ASB and make us more of a family with the same goals, and bring that outside to the rest of the campus. And to make sure everyone enjoys their time at West Ranch, feels included and has a good four years of high school.”

Q: Anything you want the student body to know?

A: “I’m excited to have a bigger role and make a true difference on campus. I could do that with community service, but now I can spread West Ranch pride and cheer.”

 

Kayla Choate – Treasurer 

Q: Something the student body might not know about you?

A: “I dislocated my knee by trying to have a dance battle.”

Q: What are your goals for the year?

A: “Just trying to help ASB be stronger and do the ripple effect out to everyone at West Ranch and bring the spirit up. I also want to see more attendance at events.”

Q: What are you most excited for as treasurer?

A: “I help a lot in the ASB office already, but I’m excited to have more duties.”

Q: How did it feel to win?

A: “I was really excited! I’ve been in many elections in my years and I’m really excited because I feel like I put the work and effort toward my campaign. I did the best I could to campaign to the students.”

Q: What was the inspiration or theme for your campaign?

A: “I went down with my family to an LA pop-up and it was pastel colors so I went with kind of a pastel theme. I really love designing things on the computer. Everything I used, I made myself. I wanted to campaign with my own touch.”

 

Cami Armendariz – Ambassador 

Q: Something the student body might not know about you?

A: “My favorite food is lobster.”

Q: What are your goals for the year?

A: “To represent the school in the best way possible. When I go to meetings I want to be sharing all the ideas the student body has as a whole.”

Q: What are you most excited for as ambassador? 

A: “I’m excited to be the representative for West Ranch and being able to share everyone’s ideas.”

Q: How did it feel to win?

A: “It was really cool to be elected by the student body.”

Q: What was the inspiration/theme for your campaign?

A: “It was ‘I’ll represent you,’ so I used Mike Wazowski’s eye as the ‘I’. And then Mike Wazowski is green so I made all my flyers green”
