Julianna Reed Jumps to the Challenge of Student Council President
Posted on January 24, 2012
As far as Julianna Reed is concerned, when you set your mind to something, you can achieve anything. These are wise words from a fifth grader who was motivated to run for Student Council President at Park Village Elementary School (PVES) when she realized that there hadn’t been a female president in quite awhile. “It doesn’t matter if you are a boy or a girl, you should be able to do just as much as the opposite gender,” says Julianna.
Currently midway through her term as president, Julianna loves making morning announcements on the loudspeaker, running the student council meetings, and making friends with the other student council officers. She is also learning some valuable life lessons. “The hardest thing is trying to do what everyone wants because someone always wants something different than someone else,” says Julianna.
If anyone can help council members come to an agreement, it’s Julianna. She has won two recognition awards for following the six Character Counts pillars at Park Village Elementary School: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. She has also won awards in sports and piano. “In piano, I won awards for best duet and for playing with the most feeling,” says Julianna.
According to Julianna, it might be hard to believe, but she used to be very shy. She has overcome her shyness and loves attending PVES, where she credits the teachers for creating the right environment for learning. “What I like most about [PVES] is that all the teachers have a special way of making learning fun,” says Julianna.
Julianna’s favorite subjects are reading and creative writing. She also enjoys drawing, soccer and basketball. “I love reading because every book has an adventure – who doesn’t love an adventure? And lately, I love to bounce on my pogo stick and jump on my trampoline,” says Julianna.
Julianna is inspired by soccer great Mia Hamm and the phrase “I’m not going to tell you what I’m going to do; I’m going to show you.” She hopes to one day be a professor of animal biology and a mother.
