This year, the Sexual Health Education Club (SHEC) elected two new presidents to fill the shoes of last year’s founders of the club, according to SHEC adviser Allison Luskey.

Luskey said the two new presidents are seniors Dorothy Slater and Hannah Heitzinger.

“I think the new co-presidents both have passion for keeping discussions going and passion for getting the word out about sexual health,” Luskey said. “They are committed to including as many students as possible so students can develop their own opinions while gaining some perspective from somebody else.”

Heitzinger said she is excited to be a president this year so she can inform students on important topics within sexual health.

“I want to create a safe, welcoming place for students at our school to come learn about sexual health where they don’t feel like they’re embarrassed or being pressured to talk but they can still get the information they are curious about and that they need,” Heitzinger said.

According to Luskey, last year’s presidents chose Slater and Heitzinger because of their perfect attendance at meetings and their leadership skills.

Luskey said the new and old presidents met over the summer to discuss this year’s plans on how to make SHEC a better club.

“They want to incorporate more topics and want to continue the every-other Thursday morning meetings,” Luskey said. “We will also tell everyone about the meetings and what the topics will be in advance so we make sure we reach as many people as possible and so we can grow the group from last year.”

Luskey said a major change from last year is that the club starts at the beginning of the year instead of during second quarter like it did last year which will allow the club a fresh start right away.

Heitzinger said the date of the first meeting is to be determined.
