At Athens Drive, a student government is organized, so that  students are given the opportunity to represent themselves and help plan activities and fundraisers. Students can run for positions such as co-president, vice president, secretary and treasurer.

Students run for what position they would like to be in. To help spread the word about themselves, posters and signs are put up throughout the hallways.

Soon elections will take place, and  students can vote for who they want to represent them. The students who are running for a specific position are representing their grade level. Elections took place May 1 through May 5.

Cooper Sykes, freshman, is running for sophomore student council president. Katie Vick, is also one of the students running for sophomore student council. The competition may be high, but it is up to the students to decide who the feel will best represent them.

Only one president can be elected, however two co-presidents can be elected. The results are all up to the students who vote.
