Name: Holly Hutcheson
Position: Freshmen Class Representative
My name is Holly Hutcheson, and I’m running for Freshmen Representative! I love being involved in fun events, whether I’m participating in them or planning them. I try my best to help everyone I can, it hurts me to see my friends suffering, so I always try my best to do what I can to help them out. I try to be as social as I can, to approach people and be as outgoing as possible. I’m a very open-minded person and love to try new things, so I think I would make a good Freshman Representative and be able to provide a fresh look on things here at Kettering!
- What activities are/were you involved in at Kettering and in high school? (list academic year, as well as any positions you may have held in any organization)
In high school, I was involved in band, theatre, and Student Council. I was in Band for four years, theatre for three, and Student Council for three. I was also appointed Treasurer of the Student Council my senior year. At Kettering, I am involved in the MMA club, and SWE.
2. What is the one trait you want people to know you for?
The one trait I would like people to know me for would be my helpful-ness. By this, I mean that I try to help everyone whenever I can, however I can. It upsets me when I cannot help my friends with something.
- What is your favorite quote/saying(s)?
My favorite quote is by Dr. Seuss; “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” I like this because it tells people to always be themselves because there will always be people who appreciate who you are.
- What do you think can be improved at Kettering and what steps will you take to accomplish this improvement?
In my opinion, student involvement in many things here at Kettering could be improved – try and get students more involved in events on campus. I may not be able to do much as a freshman, but I will try my best to suggest ideas for events and ways to get more students involved. Part of this may be creating more events so that students can be involved on campus. With a small campus like we have, it is important for people to be involved so they can feel at home.
- What has been your biggest success and failure? What have you learned from them?
My biggest success so far in my life has probably been the extra-curricular activities I have managed to participate and still keep up my grades in high school. Being in Theatre, Student Council, and band for almost all of high school takes up a lot of time.
The biggest failure that I have had in my life as of right now would probably be missing my chance to be in NHS. I had all intentions to apply, but by an unfortunate series of events I missed the deadline on the application, and I was denied the opportunity to apply.
- What is your motivation for wanting to represent the student body via Student Senate?
My motivation for wanting to be on Student Senate is because of my motivation to help people, and to make things here constantly improving. I really enjoyed being on Student Council in high school, because of the influence it had over how the school ran. Being able to change things around the school for the better is a good feeling, especially when people comment on how they’ve enjoyed the changes. Being able to help people – even in small ways – is one of the things I really enjoy doing, and I think, being on the Student Senate, I could accomplish that.
