Student Council President,
Tom Moran (seated) explains procedures to foreign exchange student Jo Wade, Joe Ferrario,
and Jackie Cussoneau.
This year's Student Council has been the most prosperous of all past councils
in South's history. Besides leading traditional events at Follies and Homecoming, Student
Council has expanded the student body's ideas into a reality. Money making projects were
boosted such as the candy cane drive, March of Dimes Drive and Charity Dance.
Among the most beneficial advancements of Student Council are exchange days with
T.F. North, music in the cafeteria, North-South Dance, and a composing of a new constitution.
With combined efforts of T.F. North and South's Student Councils, the dress code
was abolished and a start towards friendship between these two schools now exists.
Throughout the year Student Council, headed by Tom Moran, has been concerned with other
environments than those at South. A school was built in Thailand for the underpriviledged, voting
pamphlets were printed and distributed in Lansing, and it sponsored a program and assembly
One of the most important things this year's Student Council succeded in doing was bringing
a closeness between Council and Student Body, and fulfilling modern ideas of T.F. South.
Now Student Council has changed its name to Student Senate and, the most
prosperous year at South has existed in 1969-70.
