Hey SILVER CREEK!! I'm Zayn Cochinwala and I'm running for your 2017-2018 ASB President. After working in a leadership commission, being in class office, and ASB, I know how multiple aspects of our leadership program work. 


My passion and dedication towards our school is undeniable, and I hope that I can continue to show that love for our school in senior year, as your President. 






Hey Raiders! I'm Nicholas Gonzalez and I'm running for ASB Vice President. I've been a part of Student Council/Leadership/Class Office/ASB since elementary school every year since the 6th grade. At Creek, I currently have 3 years in Leadership and that includes 1 year as an ASB officer, so why not finish it off as your Vice President? I'm hard-working, dedicated, and committed to make events at Silver Creek the best that they can be. I care about the enjoyment of the students and their opinions! With all of that being said, vote for me and help me continue to make Silver Creek a place that everyone can love and enjoy




Hey Raiders! I'm Britney Black and I'm running to be your ASB Secretary. Throughout these last two years in leadership as well as class office I have been able to grow and understand myself more as a leader. Now, not only do I want to influence my class in a greater way but I would like to spread it throughout the whole school. With that, I need your help! Please come out tomorrow and vote for me Britney Black to be your '17-'18 ASB Secretary. 




After being 2019's class Treasurer and Vice President, I have a good understanding of the hard work and commitment that has to be put into leading others. I am confident that I'll be the perfect voice for not only my class but the entire student body and I'll make sure that all funds will be used to benefit US. I cannot wait to work with all the clubs and classes. Every single vote counts. 




Hello Raiders! My name is Kevin Tran and I'm running to be your next ASB Treasurer! If elected, I will bare all my dedication and passion for the betterment of Silver Creek High and its denizens. If given the opportunity, I promise to give voice and concern to the shy, the silent, and the underrepresented. It is my mission to do what I can to improve the structure of Silver Creek, to ensure fair fundings and fundraisers for all clubs, no matter the size. My three years of experience within the Leadership class has taught me a plethora of skills and insights. The strongest of these epiphanies would be my realization of how much I love Silver Creek and every unique raider experience. Vote for innovation. Vote for difference. Vote Tran because together we can!  




Hey Silver Creek Raiders!!!

My name is Henry Trinh and I am running to be your 2017-2018 ASB Treasurer! Being in Leadership for the past 2 years has taught me many, many valuable lessons and showed me how to love and support my school. I already have experience in the field of Treasurer as I already handle the funds for our school's Student Store. I am so dedicated into helping Silver Creek, and my only goal is to make a positive impact on the majority of students! I want to support our school clubs and I want to make sure that we gain more money for the student body!  I plan on informing club officers on how to manage their accounts and keep up in check with clubs that are not tending to their bank account. I also want to make sure that school funds are being used for Students during business meetings and make sure that students will always benefit from Leadership actions. I am so motivated and so dedicated to helping my lovely school and being elected ASB Treasurer will aid me in helping Silver Creek! I'm here to support and increase the funding for our school, and I'm here to support all you Raiders!

Come out to the X-Quad tomorrow to vote me, Henry Trinh, as your 2017-2018 ASB Treasurer!

Vote for Henry Trinh and your money won't run thin!




HEY RAIDERS!! This year I decided to run, because I have always wanted to run for a leadership position. But I never gave myself and and others a chance to see how well I can lead. I believe if given the chance I would really make an impact on our school. High school has helped me grow and become a more confident, resonsible and hardworking person. You should vote for me not because you are my friend or know me or just randomly pick me, but because you know that in my own way I will help the school with everything in me, that my creativity, responsibility, compassion and many more leadership skills deserve to be used to help this school. COUNT ON ME TO COUNT FOR YOU! VOTE NIKKI VADI FOR ASB TREASURER!




Hi everyone! My name is Prachi Bhagavatha, and I am running for your 2017-2018 ASB Chief Justice! This year is my third year in leadership and second year as head of my commission, so I have an enormous amount of experience organizing and planning school activities. I love participating in and leading all our events ranging from the blood drive to FANTASTICS. Also, I am super dedicated and determined to make Silver Creek a better and fun place for everyone where all the students can voice their opinions. I will go that extra mile to make you all smile, so vote me tomorrow for your ASB Chief Justice! You won't regret it!




During my time in leadership, I took note of the importance of an ASB officer (Chief Justice) and now understand the resposibilties and the impact they have on my fellow students. I decided that running for this position will help me accomplish my goal of making a difference for the school. Some of my strengths are that I am motivated, creative, hard-working, passionate, just, and committed to my school. Because I am a well rounded student, having participated in most extracurricular activities, I can bring fair and respectable ideas and judgements to ASB. Now that I have found a position that I believe suits me best, I am ready to take on the responsibilities of Silver Creek's ASB Chief Justice. 




HEEEEYYYY RAIDERS! I am Shannen De Ocampo and I am running for your ASB Spirit Leader of 2017-2018! Ok, the real question here is: Why should you vote for me as your ASB Spirit Leader? Well let me tell you some things that make me qualified for this position. I live for school spirit, I've participated in every school event here in Silver Creek High School sponsored by the Leadership Class. I am cooperative and easy to talk to. I can get loud and hyphy, whenever and wherever! I have the experience with 3 years of leadership, 2 years of class office, 2 years of club office, and 1 year of commission head! It's my passion to speak for ALL students of Silver Creek! I always aspire to positively impact someone's life everyday. I am passionate about ASB, Silver Creek, and you Raiders! Help me reach that goal by voting for me Shannen De Ocampo as your ASB Spirit Leader of 2017-2018!




Hi raiders!!!! I'm Olivia Lerner and I'm running for your 2017-2018 ASB Spirit Leader! This job requires lots of school spirit and enthusiasm! I think I would be perfect for this position. First off, I'm a cheerleader! Through cheer I have learned how to support my school and encourage the student body as a whole, whether at rallies, football games or basketball games you'll always see me cheering on my fellow Raiders! I have also had a lot of experience through leadership and community service. I strive to work well with my peers, project an awesome image of a silver creek student, and I'm always super enthusiastic and outgoing. If you know me you know I always have a smile on my face! Whether I'm cheering on the school, dressing up on spirit days, or working with the special needs program i'm always doing it with a positive attitude. I can't wait to see what next year holds for us as a school and I hope you vote for me, Olivia Lerner, for ASB spirit leader so we can work together to make it as positive and fun as possible! I would definitely FLIP out if you voted for me!! 




My name is Sergio Guijarro and I'm running to be your 2017-2018 ASB Spirit Leader. You may have recognize me from the beginning of the school year when I ran to be the secretary of my wonderful class 2020. I've learned so much great and new things  and met so much great people on the way. I feel like now I'm ready for be something greater. I want you to be excited for when you come to school because of all the new things that I want to show everyone. I want you to feel that you are wanted and respected for the person you are. That's why I want you to feel excited about school and let the true you be set free. I want everyone to know that they are not alone.
