First Vice President: Gillian Herbert My name is Gillian Herbert, and I am your 1st Vice President! This is my fifth year in JCL and my fourth year as an officer. My goals for this year include growing the Minnesota chapter, increasing our number of service projects and fundraisers, and connecting with other JCL chapters on a national level. I love musicals, especially Hamilton and Heathers, my favorite band is Panic! At the Disco, and some of my hobbies are acting, singing, and hiking. At Eagle Ridge, I also participate in student house, senate, theatre, and NHS.
Second Vice President: Tom Dugeon
Secretary: Sridhatri Guntipally Salvete! I am Sridhatri Guntipally, and I am serving as the secretary for JCL this year. I am in tenth grade, and this is my fourth year in JCL. I cannot say how excited I am for this year in JCL. We have such an enthusiastic crowd and I believe this year will be amazing! My main focus this year will be to make sure JCL members are properly informed and reminded of all event and meeting dates. I also really hope we can increase the number of service events we have this year. I believe it is important to have fun at social events, but it is even more satisfactory to know that you have helped someone in need. I think more service events will connect us to the community and bring a greater appreciation of the world around us and each other. I eagerly look forward to working with everyone this year!
Historian: Muthuvignesh Meenakshisundaram Hey! My name is Muthu and I'm your 2018-19 JCL Historian. I'm in ninth grade and this is my first year in JCL! I enjoy learning languages and can proudly say that I'm trilingual(English, Tamil, Latin). I'm a super social person and I love the classics. I typically enjoy discussion of politics and government. At Eagle Ridge Academy I have co-founded The Citizen(school newspaper), and founded the Library Aides Club when I was in seventh grade. I'm also an avid mock trial attorney, theatre kid, and I participate in student house. My favorite singers are Shawn Mendes and Ed Sheeran, along with Bob Dylan. For Broadway, I love Hamilton, Come From Away, and Dear Evan Hansen.
Parliamentarian: Dorie Bixby Classicist, worldbuilder, and all-around ruinous individual, ladies and gentlemen, your parliamentarian. This is her fourth year in the JCL. Feel free to accost her in the hallways to ask her about her superheroes, the ancient civilization of the Minoans, or whatever else you see fit.
Editor: Helena Holland Salvete omnes! I am Helena Holland, and I will be the JCL editor for this coming school year. I have been a member of JCL for two years, and the past experiences have filled me with enthusiasm for the club. As editor this year, I would like to redesign the MN JCL website to include more information for those interested in joining, as well as make it a useful tool for current members. I will be emphasizing student involvement with the Iris newsletter and hope to create a committee of members who are interested in helping to write for the Iris. On the personal side, I love to read and am a huge Harry Potter fan. I enjoy going to music concerts, and my favorite bands are Wilco and Queens of the Stone Age. I am looking forward to working with you all in making this a great year of JCL.
