The competition was fierce and the seniors running for the title for president came up with plans and ideas that could and will improve the present status of their class.
The position of senior Class President attracted four hardworking candidates: Pauline Chinnery, Silka Ritter, Latanya Huggins and Abdul Liburd.
For the Vice President position there were four candidates also: Canika George, Luz Boschulte, Dean Williams and Renee Andre. The positions of Secretary, Treasurer, and Public Relations were uncontested.
