Good Morning Teachers,

We had several area officer applications and I am thankful your students want to serve and be leaders for our region. 
We had to narrow down several applications which is never an easy thing to do as all of these students were very qualified. 
Below is a list of the students nominated to run for area officer for the 2016-2017 school year.

Each of the students below will have to
- take an area officer exam
- give a 1 minute campaign speech on stage

Candidates need to report in official dress to the auditorium at 3:30 the day of the awards ceremony to take the test.
They will be allowed 1 hour to take a 50 minute test.
