The Student Council and the Class Council are the governing bodies of Andrew Lewis. Through these organizations the voice of the students is heard. The Student Council for this year has been one of the most active in recent years. Under the leadership of Buddy Eakin and with the guidance of Miss Webb, many worth¬ while projects have been completed. In November, the District Convention was held in Salem, with representatives from twenty-two schools present. The other achievements of the Student Governing Body included the establishing of a weekly devotional period, the aiding of orientation of new pupils, and the virtual completion of a much needed Hl|ww ll Alii m Mism m W sWL v L 0 iflifa PH IP fi» TbUT handbook. The main function of the Class Council is the providing of a connect¬ ing link between the Student Council and the individual homerooms. These two councils are truly the means by which the students express their ideas concerning school affairs.
