On Thursday, May 30, Riverdale students and teachers congregated in the gymnasium, hearing the rousing speeches of three candidate pairs for co-presidents of the Student Faculty Council (SFC). The Riverdale community elected Teji Vijayakumar and Patrick Davidson as their SFC co-presidents for the 2019-2020 school year. Other candidate pairs of Mason Geller and Owen Klinsky, who will be serving on the SFC as representatives next year, and Antonia Green and Kelvyn Nivar gave inspiring speeches, and will engage with our Riverdale community in other ways to bring their visions to life.
The new SFC presidents remarked on the culture that they wish to bring for the upcoming school year,
"We think our differences are a good thing. The two of us engage in very different aspects of the Riverdale community, so we can represent you on a more holistic level and translate your suggestions into realities. We offer two different perspectives in a productive way that will make change happen –– change on behalf of the entire student population, not just for certain demographics."
