BRIGHTON — Pemayetv Emahakv Charter School held its annual Student Council inauguration ceremony Sept. 24 in the school gymnasium.
Parents, community members, fellow students and staff watched as Brighton Councilman Andrew J. Bowers Jr. swore in the 10 elected Student Council representatives.
The elected representatives raised their right hands and placed their left hands on the Bible as they repeated the oath of office after Councilman Bowers.
Following their swearing in, Student Council members received a sash from the outgoing members and then addressed the audience.
Councilman Bowers pressed upon the elected members the importance of what they had accomplished.
“Student Council, do you know what you just said?” Councilman Bowers asked the representatives. “What you’ve just said and done, you have to live up to. We are going to be watching. Set a good example.”
The ceremony concluded with a traditional receiving line, giving peers and guests a chance to congratulate and shake the hands of the newest members of the Student Council.
