Student Government Association / Student Council


The Student Government Association is comprised of seven officers elected by the entire student body. SGA organizes and runs the meetings of the Student Council. Student Council is an organization of elected officers from each class who provide leadership in student affairs. SGA and the Council act as the liaison with school administration on matters of policy, school spirit and community service. Homecoming activities, the Miss BK Pageant, Springfest, and the Catholic Charities Gift Drive are just some of the projects coordinated by these organizations. The Student Council strives to promote harmonious relations throughout the school and provides a forum for student expression through the assistance of student representatives. Two of the SGA officers also serve on the School Improvement Team.
