Campaigning to achieve a spot on the board for Marian Central Student Council is a tough task. Being a part of student council means being voted by fellow classmates to be a leader and representative as well as being the voice of students. Julia Jenkner (12) has been a leader for her class for the past four years at Marian Central as a part of student council where she has developed and shown her leadership skills.   

Jenkner has been part of the student council since she was in middle school at St. Thomas. She has been on student council for the past four years as a corresponding secretary here at Marian. As a senior, Jenkner is the Corresponding Secretary for the Executive Student Council. “For me, being on student council gives me a greater chance to be a stronger link between faculty and students to provide ideas for fundraisers or dances.” Being the corresponding secretary means Jenkner has some tough challenges in front of her. Getting ideas approved has become quite difficult considering that everyone must agree, and she must incorporate aspects that the whole student body will enjoy. Along with making the student body happy, Jenkner also has to have a great deal of leadership since she is representing not only her class, but her whole school. To achieve her leadership skills, Jenkner has attended multiple leadership conferences including LEAD and the National Student Leadership Conference at Northwestern University. Jenkner claims, “I’ve learned how to channel my inner leader and be a voice for my peers. I feel it’s also brought me closer to my classmates and is a great outlet for all my extra energy.” Being apart of student council for Jenkner means helping her fellow students be heard and being able to balance ideas, contacting people, and making sure everyone is on board for a fun and successful school year.

Over the past four years Jenkner has made memories on student council she’ll never forget. “Planning Prom and other dances, decorating the whole school for Homecoming, and seeing everything really come together to make a great time are things I will never forget.” Jenkner also enjoyed being involved in all the service projects, including Feed My Starving Children, as well being thoroughly involved in every event they put together while getting to know the council better and keeping connected.

Jenkner has been a great example for her fellow students by showing her dedication and leadership throughout the past four years. Jenkner plans to attend the University of Dayton next fall and continue her love of being apart of the student council team. The leadership skills Jenkner learned at Marian will go along with her to college to help more people as she continues to help others.
