Mount St. Dominic Proudly Announces Student Government Leaders and the New Siena Seven

Inclusivity is a fundamental value of The Mount. All students need to feel that they belong and have equal opportunities and access to classes, sports, extracurricular activities, and leadership positions. With this in mind, The Mount’s Student Council has added a new layer to its structure, allowing for a broader spectrum of students to participate in the school’s leadership. Seven new positions have been created as a support and advising system to the Executive Board of the Student Council. The seven positions, called the Siena Seven, will be similar to Cabinet Members for the US President. They will also act as liaisons to the administration and teachers. These seven will encompass all aspects of school life with a focus on the four core pillars of the school’s Dominican Values – Study, Prayer, Community, and Service. 

The traditional Student Council roles remain the center of the leadership structure. Elections take place each spring. The Executive Board will meet on a weekly basis and these meetings will include the new Siena Seven. In addition, each grade has their own leaders. (9th grade elections will take place in the fall). These leaders plan their own grade level meetings and join the Executive Board and Siena Seven for meetings once a month.

Congratulations to all our Student Council!
