Student Council

Nate Ferrari is the representative for Student Council in Mr. Pioneer. He is a member of the cross country and track teams. Nate is a member of a plethora of school clubs, including Varsity Club, High School HEROES, and National Honor Society, in which he serves as Treasurer. After personally being asked, Nate grew excited at the opportunity to represent Student Council in the contest. This year, he has thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his friends. If he becomes Mr. Pioneer, he hopes to set a good example for future Mr. Pioneers. Next year, Nate plans to study marketing with an emphasis on visual communication and advertising.
