Student Body Elections


With Student Body Elections coming up soon, it is good to get to know the candidates before deciding who to vote for.

Student Body President Candidates

Joel Nkrumah

Joel Nkrumah is running for Student Body President unopposed. Nkrumah in currently the Junior Class President and wants to be Student Body President because he loves what student council does and wants to be as involved as possible. With the position he is given, he wants to be a voice expressing what Kilbourne students really want.

At WKHS, Nkrumah is actively involved with the Chess club, which he helped founded, is part of the Principals’s advisory council, a member in the National Honor Society, Science Olympiad, and plays football.

Outside of school, Nkrumah contributes to the community by playing piano at his church services and managing a food pantry that assists over 200 families a month.

Nkrumah is excited to take on the biggest role he can next year and hopes to serve the Kilbourne Pack to the best of his ability.

Student Body Vice President Candidates

Bella White

Bella White has been a student representative in student council for the past three years, as well as being in the cabinet.

White plays golf, basketball, and lacrosse for the school and is committed to Kent State for lacrosse. She is also part of Kilbourne’s choir.

White thinks that she is the perfect candidate for Student Body Vice President because she believes that with her experience in student council already, she is best prepared for what Vice Presidency could throw at her. Not only is she prepared for it, but she wants the responsibility that being vice president brings with it.

If she is elected Student Body Vice President, White plans to “add more school spirit to the whole student body so more people want to come to school because it’s fun and a good place to be at, not because they have to.”

Gavin Wang

Gavin Wang has also been part of student council for 3 years and has been taking more and more responsibility each year.

Wang is involved in a plethora of activities and clubs here at Kilbourne and outside of Kilbourne. At school, he is involved in Track, Chess Club, Link Crew, Ski Club, NHS, and Student Athletic Leadership Board in school. Outside of school, Wang volunteers in the VITA Tax Program, where he helps low income families file their taxes for free.

Wang believes that he deserves your vote because of his past experiences in student council and the responsibilities he has had in the past. Wang thinks that because of all the responsibilities he has had already, he would be the perfect fit for Student Body Vice President because this new job would not be very different from what he has already done in the past.

If he is elected Student Body Vice President, he wants to be very reachable and be one with the people. Wang also plans “to be a great leader that can inspire other students to step up and create a community where everyone can feel like they belong.”


Student Body Elections were open until Thursday, April, 11. Stayed tuned to see if the person you voted for won!
