Senior Dylan Minevich and SGA Board attempt to make school a more positive place
Flag football player, HOPE Sunshine Club member, National Honor Society member, Best Buddies member and now Student Government Association co-vice president for the second year in a row. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School senior Dylan Minevich was once again elected onto the SGA board serving as vice president, which is Minevich’s largest role on campus.
“I chose to run for SGA co-vice president because I thought I would be able to make a difference for our student body,” Minevich said. “I want to ensure every student feels comfortable and enjoys adjusting back to a normal school year.”
Since Minevich’s first year as a member of SGA occured in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was difficult for her to get as involved as she would have liked. Now that students are 100% in-person, Minevich has been able to get more involved on campus by joining clubs and talking to students. Minevich’s main reason for joining SGA was to help students by being a role model and someone students can talk to.
“SGA was very appealing to me because I had such a wonderful experience at MSD and wanted to create a similar experience for other students,” Minevich said.
Minevich realized that last school year during COVID-19 was not what most students expected or hoped for. She hopes to create a more welcoming environment at MSD for students to interact with each other in a safe way.
“My goal is to create an atmosphere where all students feel comfortable and as included as possible,” Minevich said.
Minevich also works well with her fellow members of SGA. All of the members remain very close and communicate well in order to make positive changes at MSD.
Outside of school, Minevich participates in a variety of clubs, including the Make-A-Wish South Florida Youth Leadership Committee. She also enjoys spending time with her friends and family but school is one of her top priorities.
Minevich is excited for this school year and hopes to enforce a positive environment in her last year.
