Key to council work is time management

IT is a privilege and an honor to be on the student council, but it does require non-academic work. Dividing a student's time between the student council and academics is very important. Personally, I believe that time management and prioritizing are some of a student council member's most valuable skills. A student must be able to complete assignments for school as well as work with fellow student council members.

From my experience, the weekend is ideal for carrying out my roles as a member of the student council. I don't have to worry about time constraints, and the weekend atmosphere takes pressure off of academic activities.

The student council is a team, and when members of the team don't pull their weight, the team fails to work to the best of its ability. Members of the council recognize that they will have to devote some of their academic time toward helping the team. As a team we are able to divide work evenly so that no one should be buried in work.

If some students are too busy for a night, then it is never a problem for me or anyone else in the council to step in for them. That is what a team does. And although the student council is a great responsibility, no activity, regardless of its importance, should prevent a student from studying to the best of their ability. And on the occasion that it does, a team member will always be there, ready and willing to help.
