Hunter and Rocco Elected as Co-Presidents

On April 28, as the year came close to ending, the election to vote next year’s student body co-presidents took place. Despite the hardships of the current situation with COVID-19, the WRA community successfully had its online voting system through Canvas, for the first time in its history. With a total of ten strong candidates participating, this year’s election was an especially hard and close race, as even the second round was needed for a four-way tie-breaker.

On the following Morning Meeting on May 1, this year’s twin co-presidents, Ellie Frato-Sweeney ’20 and Noah Frato-Sweeney ’20 announced the two officers for the 2020-2021 year: Hunter Amos ’21 and Rocco Prolizo ’21! Both Hunter and Rocco showed their care and spirits for Reserve in their online speeches. Hunter explained: “I am passionate about improving student expression through places like Green Key, school dress, and traditions, and really building up a culture of healthy competition through things like class Olympics.” Rocco said: “I plan to make participation my biggest goal… I want to begin new traditions at Reserve that are fun, instead of having just big three traditions — morning meetings, Reserve greens, and Sit-downs.”

Although it will be the first time serving as a class officer for both of them, the WRA community is excited to see how Hunter and Rocco will lead the student body, continue Reserve culture, and make new changes next year. Suzannah Sanders Burdis ’21 exclaimed her excitement as she stated: “I think they’ll be a good team and that they will be a good voice for the student body!”

After the Frato-Sweeney’s short ‘thank you’ speech at the last morning meeting of the year, the new student body co-presidents delivered their brief inaugural speech and closed the meeting with the traditional closing, “seniors you are dismissed.”
