Webb Student Government
The Student Government develops activities, initiatives, and policies on behalf of its student constituents and the school while fostering constructive communication among students, faculty, and administration. Additionally, Student Government is responsible for encouraging positive school spirit. Students are elected to the positions of class presidents and vice presidents, and to the executive offices of presidents and vice presidents, through a process of application and speeches, followed by a student vote. Other officers may be placed in their positions by appointment. In addition to serving as members of the school-wide Student Government, class officers also lead their classes, hold regular class meetings, address issues of importance to the class, and organize class activities.
Day to Day Leadership Roles
There are many opportunities for Webb students to lead outside of year-long formal leadership roles. In the arts, stage managers are charged with leading a performance project, section leaders guide the development of fellow musicians, and arts committee helps to plan arts café and other art-centered events on campus. In athletics, team captains support their teams for the season. Founding a club is a terrific opportunity to try out leadership in an area of special interest. The Student Weekend Activities Group allows students to have a voice in planning the weekend program. Students should be sure to read the Student News group where possibilities to play a lead role in a community effort appear all the time – recent examples include student representatives on the Transgender Guidelines Task Force and the planning committee for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Assembly.
