Hello everyone! My name is Jonah Gunderson and I am honored to be the President of Lyons in this 2016-2017 school year. I have been in Lyons leadership for as long as I can remember and am beyond excited to be President of Lyons this year. Throughout the years, I have seen Lyons grow as a family and show the potential to become the winning House. As Lyons President, I will not stop working until I have brought out the potential of each member of Lyons, bringing our House to victory. During this school year, I will show Lyons member how to become the best version of themselves spiritually, economically, and athletically.
My leadership team and I are already discussing ways to benefit the House in every way possible. My high school leadership team consists of Emma Jones, Jordan Daly, Madeleine Hardt, Regina Munoz and Rosie Stagliano. My very enthusiastic junior high representatives are Alex Plati and Jackson Lehmann. Emma Jones is Lyons Vice-President and she is our special projects coordinator, overseeing all the events Lyons will be holding such a Lyons lock-ins and lunches. Jordan Daly and Madeleine Hardt are the Captains and they are the real work force for the House of Lyons, being in charge of the House’s day-to-day operations. Regina Munoz, our fundraising chair, will be responsible for all the profits and sales of our House this year. Rosie Stagliano, our PR chair, will make all the events of Lyons known to each House throughout the year. Jackson Lehmann, our service chair, will make sure that the House of Lyons has two service projects during the year, one for each semester. Alex Plati, our sports associate, will be in charge of our flex periods and he will make sure that the House of Lyons has lots of enthusiasm.
The Lyons leadership team, along with the rest of our House, entails many outstanding members who are just as passionate as I am about making our House victorious. I cannot wait to see what the year has in store for Lyons and I know that we can make Lyons better, always better.
