Student Council (StuCo) is attending the Nevada Association of Student Councils State Conference (NASC) from Apr. 23 through Apr. 28 at Canyon Springs High School and will be staying at the Texas Station Hotel.

“It is the longest three days of our lives, but it’s fun. I’m especially excited for this year because we don’t have to travel eight hours by bus and it’s been a long time since it’s been in Vegas,” StuCo adviser Miriya Julian said.

The theme of the conference is “Game On” and at the event, students will be participating in workshops, leadership building activities and general sessions.

“I could not be more excited for this weekend! The theme, ‘Game On,’ is amazing I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us. Even though this will be my very last student council conference, I’m sure it will be the best one yet,” Class of 2015 President Lisa Blais said.

Out of the 23 StuCo members attending the conference, four will be participating as junior counselors, six will be in workshop pairs and three will be roundtable presenters. The remaining members will be delegates at other workshops.

“For our workshop, our theme is ‘Avengers,’ and we want to incorporate the idea of this superhero team to help our participants learn the importance of teamwork. Our participants will be solving mysteries and playing games,” Class of 2016 Vice-President Xueying Zheng said.

Additionally, two members will be running for the state board. Sophomores Lindsey Zangler will be running for Newsletter Editor and Kevin Peace will be running for Webmaster.

“I’m running for NASC State Board Newsletter Editor because for this past year I have been Newsletter Editor for SWCTA Student Council which has helped prepare me for this position. I love everything that NASC does for the Student Council’s all over the state and want to be a part of making that change and inspiring others to be greater leaders,” Zangler said.
