The Associated Student Body (ASB) is the formal student government at Bell and serves three main functions: organizing events throughout the year to support student life on campus, overseeing the approval and funding for student clubs, and representing students and acting as a liaison between the students, faculty, and administration.
The ASB comprises an elected student Executive Board and is currently led by Joshua Darlucio ‘23 and Ryan Milligan ‘22 as the Associated Student Body Presidents for the 2022 school year.
Mrs. Slater serves as the faculty advisor for ASB, helping student officers with planning activities and maintaining the organization’s smooth functioning. With Mrs. Slater currently on leave, several teachers are graciously serving as co-advisors to the student Executive Board including Ms. Gary, Ms. Fellenz, and Ms. Troyan. In addition to the Executive Board, the ASB’s elected class officers have stepped up their role to help with leadership, actively working on many things this semester such as proposals for new events, helping organize planned events, and representing their fellow students. Some exciting events coming up this semester include another Spirit Week, a March Madness bracket, Spikeball, ping-pong and cornhole tournament, battle of the bands, and a special rally, to name a few.
The ASB is an inclusive body that welcomes and appreciates diverse points of view and provides leadership and service opportunities to interested students. This year, ASB introduced town halls to provide a forum for students to share their views with both the student leaders as well as fellow students. Reach out to the ASB co-presidents, moderators, or your class representative to learn more about how you can participate and make an impact!
