Friday was the annual student convention at Sonoma Valley High School to elect student leaders for next year. The day was filled with the usual hijinks along with the serious business of electing a leadership team. Freshmen Josh Coglizer and Luis Alvarez watch one of the candidates explain his slate’s platform. Once all the votes were counted, Slate 3, with Paulina Prasad as student voice, Maria Hawing as student activities director and Jack Murphy as financial advisor, were elected as next year’s student leaders. Their campaign was managed by Vinnie Albano, and promised to create more avenues for students to give input on school issues.
