     Master Council, the label of being one of the best student councils in state, has been earned for the second time by the CCJH council. This has been now set as an expectation rather than a goal by the Student Council adviser Jason Davis.
     Council members were presented the award at the Arizona Association of Junior High Student Councils state convention on May 11.
     Davis said that when the council first joined the AAJHSC the tasks that needed to be accomplished felt overwhelming, and receiving Master Council was a lofty goal. There was about 20 obligations required for Master Council, some of which were leadership projects, school spirit activities, and community work. Teamwork and full contribution from all members was needed to complete these in a timely manner.
     “It took a lot of dedication and contribution from every single one of my Student Council peers,” eighth grader Lizbeth Rodriguez said. “Every person did contribute and took part in receiving this award.”
     Davis said the process of completing work went more smoothly after meeting the requirements the previous year. After receiving Master Council, members felt nothing but pride and had known all of the work was worth it.
     “The more you do something, the easier it gets,” Mr. Davis said. “The process was much easier this year, I started having council members work on it much earlier, divided the responsibilities among more students, and was able to give better directions because I knew what the judges were looking for.”
     Current members are now hoping their contribution and hard work will reflect onto future members. Encouraging other members can help them understand the thought of Master Council being a requirement, not a goal.
     “I will help future members by telling them to do their best, that all hard work will pay at the end, said the President of the Council, Janice Roque. “Master Council is part of being in Student Council, you do the work, you get the award.”
