Mascot Committee Update

This past Thursday, the design election concluded! Thank you to everyone who voted and helped us throughout this long but rewarding process. Hanover High School’s new mascot design will be unveiled on Wednesday during the Council meeting (as always, all vaccinated community members are welcome to attend). The design will be adapted by HHS art teacher and graphic designer Kara Waters in order to produce a usable image for our clubs, teams, and school moving forward.

Throughout this process, we continue to value the feedback of all students, staff, and community members. As always, we encourage all to reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns by emailing the committee or by filling out this form.

Council Report

We’re approaching our final few Council meetings of the year! Next week, Council will hold Leadership nominations next week, so you’ll be reading reports from a different Secretary in a few weeks!

This week, Council discussed the Student Life Committee Bylaw Revision, the Examining Equity Committee Creation Bylaw Revision, and Change in Representation Statement Bylaw Revision

The Student Life Committee Bylaw Revision introduced new language to update the Bylaws and strike through content that is no longer relevant to the committee’s intent, but the motion itself will be debated and discussed at a later date.

The Examining Equity Committee Creation Bylaw Revision introduced changes to the organization of planning MLK Day every year. Vidushi Sharma (‘23) and Josh Stearns (‘24) sought to form a committee of dedicated members with diverse views needed to be created in order for there to be an impactful, cohesive Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration. They also wanted to give this committee the ability to plan other equity-related events so that members of HHS are consistently provided opportunities to better themselves and their communities. After much deliberation and many questions, the motion passed. Throughout the discussion, an emphasis was placed on the importance of allowing the committee to organize other events of cultural and religious significance (including a potential Holocaust Remembrance Day). 

Finally, the Change in Representation Statement Bylaw Revision was brought by Vidushi Sharma (‘23). When Council members are typically replaced, elections are run to replace the member. However, no public acknowledgement (outside of a Council meeting) is typically given to this replacement. This motion would bring a change to current practice … if a Council officer is removed, the Public Relations Officer would release a statement on Schoology or another school-sponsored platform (such as The Broadside) announcing the change in representation, but the statement would not mention the reason for the removal of the Council officer. This motion was brought as a way to ensure that the school community is aware of who their representatives are. Additionally, it was stated that Council cannot be a truly representative and democratic body if it replaces representatives without releasing a formal statement. Although this motion is still in debate, more than a few members were opposed to this idea, stating that they recognize the intent of this motion, but worry that bullying might happen as a result.

Read more in the Council minutes (published before Sunday at 9am).

Please submit questions, comments, and feedback about Council or this summary through an anonymous survey. We meet from 11 to 11:50 am every Wednesday in the HHS Auditorium (vaccinated community members are encouraged to attend … this is still the policy). If you’d like to learn more about Council, explore our website.

Saia Patel (Council Secretary)


Youth in Action

More volunteer fun ahead sign up to help out the Red Cross Blood Drive, invasive species removal with Hanover Conservancy, Dimas House clean up, and our fun monthly dinner at the Listen Center.
