After three years, Ms. McHorney has announced her resignation as Student Council adviser. The search for a new Student Council faculty advisor has already begun. McHorney tackled that problem with an all-staff email where she detailed the nuances of the position. She clarified the fallacy that Student Council is just “dances and reading announcements.”

According to McHorney, money raised with the Winter Carnival dance is used to fund the Student Council Grant Program. She feels it is “the most important work” the Memorial Student Council does. “We help fund so many field trips, extracurricular activities, resources, subs, events for other clubs…We also have committees that focus on volunteering and improving the school.”

All that activity is based on the underlying premise that Student Council members are “the link between the student [body] and the administration on what students need or want within the school.” One example of that has been the installation of drinking fountains that also serve as water bottle filling stations. Student Council is also the primary organizing effort behind annual Homecoming activities.

McHorney belittled the idea serving as adviser was an unrewarding task and praised council members. “[I] get to work with some of the best and brightest – kids who have truly given me an insane amount of hope that the world is not a horrible place and that we will be okay in the future because of the leadership I’ve seen exhibited by so many.”

That faith in the future is manifested in McHorney’s reason for resigning. She and her husband are expecting a child. If everything proceeds well, she will be on maternity leave during this fall’s Homecoming “because I’ll need to channel all of my energy in[to]…my own child. “
