Administrators at the Middle School have instituted primary elections that will eliminate all but eight candidates for the general election.
Candidates running for class senator will give a speech before the primary. The remaining eight candidates will participate in a town hall class meeting.
“We hope to discourage those students who simply want to win a popularity contest,” seventh grade dean Colby Plath said.
Class representatives will also participate in a leadership class next year similar to the prefect council class, Plath said.
