Chaminade Student Council Receives 2017 National Gold Council of Excellence Award

For its exemplary record of leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and community, Chaminade College Preparatory’s student council has been awarded a 2017 National Gold Council of Excellence Award by the National Association of Student Councils (NASC).

“Receiving an NASC National Gold Council of Excellence Award reflects the highest dedication on the part of the school to providing a strong, well-rounded student council program,” said Ann Postlewaite, National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) student programs director. “NASC applauds the work of the National Gold Councils of Excellence and challenges them to continue their leadership and service to their schools and communities.”

“The student leaders that are elected and appointed to positions of leadership on student council work really hard throughout the year to make sure there is a positive culture and family spirit on campus. A lot of their work goes unnoticed, so I am proud that they have been honored with this award,” said Julie La Belle, director of students activities at Chaminade’s high school.

To meet the requirements for the NASC National Council of Excellence Award, a student council must meet a variety of criteria. In addition to basic requirements such as a written constitution, regular meetings, a democratic election process, and membership in NASC, councils must demonstrate things such as leadership training for council members, teacher/staff appreciation activities, student recognition programs, school and community service projects, spirit activities, goal setting, financial planning, and active participation in state and national student council associations. Those councils awarded the gold level have successfully demonstrated the highest levels of leadership.

“What makes our student council so special is the passion that each individual has for the team.  Our members do not see what we do as work, but instead truly want to give back to our community,” said  Kojo Boakye-Nimako ’18, ASB president.

Dear Chaminade Families,

It is with great joy that I welcome all our families to a new school year at Chaminade! Thank you for entrusting us with the education and faith formation of your children.

This year we celebrate 65 years of Chaminade College Preparatory, as well as the Marianist bicentennial, and the founding of the Society of Mary by Blessed William Joseph Chaminade. Additionally, each year we celebrate one of the Characteristics of Marianist Education, and this year will focus on the importance and meaning of service, justice, and peace.

I am also pleased to welcome two new Marianists to our school family. Fr. Joseph Raj, S.M. and Bro. Kumar Kambhampati, S.M. come to us from India. Both are eager to serve and learn – Fr. Raj as school chaplain and Bro. Kumar as a pastoral associate. Their arrival means that Chaminade is blessed with six vowed Marianists. Fr. Ted Ley, S.M. ’58 continues to be present for Masses and retreats, and remains active in our Marianist Community.

As we go through the school year, there will be many stories to share and events to support. In addition to the various concerts and competitions you attend, you are always welcome to celebrate Mass with us at either of our campuses. You can also keep up with us online:

Please know that our faculty, staff, and administration hold your children in prayer. We look forward to a blessed and successful school year. Thank you again for choosing Chaminade!

God Bless and Go Eagles!
Robert S. Webb P ’18 ’20
President
