Have you ever wanted to truly be able to make a change in the school or even the district? If so, you may want to check out the Student Executive Board (SEB). SEB is a club here at HHS that gets students involved in the Hillsborough Board of Education. They meet with the school administration and bring up problems that the students face, then work with the administrators to develop solutions that will benefit the community.

SEB gives a platform for students to share their opinions and try to make our community a better place”

— Isabella Ruiter

Student Council is also a great place to make change in the school, but Student Council deals more with spirit and fundraising events instead of facility and community changes.

SEB was founded by junior Varun Deb and it is advised by Heather DeNicola.

“As founder, I direct the meetings,” Deb said. “However, SEB is different in that regard. There really is no one person ’running’ the meeting; it’s more of a collaborative effort between all of us. Whenever anyone wants to take over, it’s free game.”

The club is aiming to solve a variety of issues that deal with improving students’ moods, health, and overall happiness. Currently, they are focusing on fixing the bathroom sinks, reducing hallway traffic, and introducing more lunch options.

“I am a big believer in people working together to improve the community,” senior Isabella Ruiter said. “Currently, our school is the community we live in everyday; it’s where we interact with people and learn to become the leaders of the future, so it’s the perfect place to start thinking and acting to make our community better. SEB gives a platform for students to share their opinions and try to make our community a better place.”

The current SEB members are satisfied with the club and are invested in making a change in their community. In addition, the club offers a lot of freedom and power to the students which they utilize to improve the school systems.

There are currently around twenty people in the club. However, anyone can join and speak his or her mind, as there are no fixed-in-stone rules. Meetings are held Wednesdays at 7:10 a.m. in room 814.

If you know of any problems that students are constantly facing at the school, feel free to stop by one of the meetings and get involved! A change can help not only you and your peers, but also future generations of students.
