2018-2019 student government announced

May 8, 2018

The election results are in! The Madeira student government and class officers have been named for the 2018-2019 school year. 

The student government is voted in by all grade levels. This year, candidates made campaign speeches before the entire student body at MadeiraED, a professional conference with in which Madeira students and faculty act as both speakers and attendees. This year, the theme was "Taking the Lead" and sessions showcased the various ways our students act as agents of change in and beyond our school community. Virginia Delegates Elizabeth Guzman and Dawn Adams gave keynote speeches. Students voted via an online system and results were announced at the end of the day.

A few weeks later, voting occurred grade-by-grade for class officers for rising sophomores, juniors and seniors. Resident Assistant were chosen in late April and ninth grade student leaders will be elected early in the fall.
