Amy Zarebczan is Student Council President for Passaic Prep Academy.

Millions of Americans went out to vote on Election Day, November 5. We had the same opportunity right here at Passaic Prep, a little earlier on the calendar.

On Sept. 26, the students of Passaic Prep hit the voting site in the auditorium to vote for their next student council.

 This is a decision that affects all students at Prep. The votes were announced at the end of the day and students learned who their next student council president was going to be: sophomore Amy Zarebczan

“I have a lot in mind, but a lot of good things are coming up this year, fundraisers, student teacher activities, and more!” Amy told The Boulevard.

Amy has taken part in student government since she was a middle schooler at Lincoln. 

“Middle School shaped me!” she said. “Thanks to Mr. Figueroa who has taught me so much of what I know today, from public speaking to working with others. I would say he is one of the reasons I won this election.”

Mr. Figueroa, student council adviser, is in charge of ensuring that the council is run smoothly. He teaches AP US History 1 and AP Human Geography at Passaic Prep.
