Student Council

 

The Student Council is a student leadership organization that hosts school related events and engages in projects around the school and the community to raise awareness. We give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects. We enhance student voices at Woodrow Wilson High School by advocating for student equity, interests, and concerns to the school administration. Students that are a part of Student Council are responsible, diligent, fun-loving high school students dedicated to improving the WWHS student body experience, building student leadership, outreach, and aid of our community.
