Current president unfolds new plan for role specialization
SGA President Alex Bae is spearheading a reform of the duties of Blair's president and vice president to improve the efficiency of school-based event planning and county-wide administrative events.
Under the reform, the president will be responsible for managing state and county-wide events, such as Student Member of the Board (SMOB) meetings. The vice president will concentrate on planning school-wide events like homecoming and blood drives.
Bae explained that these new task divisions will both improve school events and afford Blair greater representation at the county level since each leader can devote more time to his or her own job. "I'm hoping that we'll be able to do more," Bae said. "I hope the student body will see the difference."
The SGA is implementing the new system this year to avoid a rocky transition under a new president and vice president for the 2010 - 2011 school year. "I'm easing into it," Bae said. He met with the SGA's executive team on March 15 to outline new responsibilities and roles. He has also met with Principal Darryl Williams to review the new structure.
The new system will outline SGA positions more clearly, allowing future SGA candidates to "run for a job that matches their interest," Bae said. Instead of juggling both county-wide government events and school-based events, students can choose a specific job.
