Activities Director Catalina Lemos on June 26 presented the Associated Student Body (ASB) annual report to the district Board of Trustees.

She noted that there were 51 ASB student officers in the recently-completed academic year, 10 of whom were elected and the other 41 were appointed following an interview process. The officers, 59 percent of whom were Hispanic/Latino, 29 percent White and 12 percent “other,” earned a cumulative 3.53 grade point average in the 2017-18 academic year, while ASB class officers earned a 3.57 GPA. Those compare to the overall SBHS student body GPA of 2.72.

ASB organized numerous events throughout the year, including Fall and Winter Homecoming, the ASB Convention, the Fall and Spring Bumpfest, Air Jams, rallies, BLTs (Baler Lunch Time) and other events.

The ASB coordinated the Benefit Drive, during which it secured more than $23,000 for Brett Mattocks and provided community service and volunteer hours at numerous events in San Benito County, such as Kids at the Park, the San Benito County Fair’s Kids’ Day, the Hazel Hawkins Hospital Auxiliary luncheon, the R.O. Hardin Reading Program and set-up and clean-up at graduation.
