Nelin Gharpetian Has Taken Charge

Junior Class President brings over two years of experience to ASB

Nelin Gharpetian was born and raised in Glendale. In the future, she plans to be a pharmacist, as she has been inspired by her uncle who has the same profession. 

Nelin is currently serving as president for the Class of 2024. Her hobbies include playing soccer, and she is actually a member of the GHS soccer team. She also knows how to play piano, but she hasn’t played for a while, which makes her want to get back into it.

To be a class president, you need to have a certain GPA, and you also should have good citizenship. Nelin felt confident last year when she ran for Junior Class President, because no one was running against her, and she had previously served as a class president during her freshman and sophomore years. 

As Junior Class President, Nelin runs the class council meetings, where they make decisions about important topics, like next year’s Prom venue. She also helps guide her classmates in organizing events and holding fundraisers. 

Nelin enjoys being the Junior Class President because she likes being involved in school activities, where she can help GHS to improve its success. She has already had two years of experience as a class president, but next year, she plans to run for the position of ASB President.

When making a decision for her class, Nelin discusses every issue and concern with her classmates, and they have meetings every week. When there are a lot of things going on, it may sometimes get challenging to be in that position, and she has to make sure that she is specific with the things that she is doing. To help the junior class, Nelin always makes sure they all have the right resources available to them, and if anyone has a strong opinion about any issue, she always tries to give them the opportunity to speak up. 

For any students who plan on running for next year’s Junior Class President, Nelin recommends being an outgoing and genuine person to everyone. because you have to be thoughtful and considerate of others when making decisions for them. She wants everyone to maintain a balance with all aspects of their life and try not to focus on one specific thing, like academics. Instead, Nelin recommends that students try new activities, like joining a sport or a club. 

If you are interested to be part of the junior class council, join their Remind account by texting @ghsasb2024 to 81010. You can also attend their regular class council meetings on Tuesdays in Room 4411, and you should contact your junior class advisors, Mr. O’Malley or Mr. Benkovich.
