Student Senate Update May 11


Kashaf Iftikhar

As the school year comes to a close, there are a few things that need to be done before the summer. In this senate meeting, senators were presented with information, including new class officers and a closing chapter for graduating seniors.

May: This month celebrates the culture of Asian-Pacific Americans and Pacific Islanders. You can support people of these heritages by watching TV shows and movies that include AAPI, reading books by AAPI authors, and researching why the month is important.

FUN FACT: In May, the first Japanese immigrants arrived in the United States, and after the completion of the transcontinental, more than 20,000 Asian immigrants followed!
