Senior Class Vice President
Senior Class Secretary
Hello my fellow students! My name is Kinley. I have been a member of the Merit Academy student body for many years. I am grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to learn from you and grow because of that learning. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time in my garden tending flowers. I also find peace and joy in canoeing, camping, and taking little excursions exploring wild places. My family is the best part of my life, that cannot be doubted. As the fourth oldest of nine siblings, I have enjoyed the mentoring of my older brothers and sister as well as being able to nurture and love the younger ones. One can often find me sitting quietly reading in a corner, or playing celtic fiddle tunes on my violin. I love attending Merit and how supportive we all are of one another as students.
Merit is amazing!

Junior Class President
My name is Grace Parsons and I am running for Junior class president. I enjoy participating in Theater, Glee, and Ballroom dance! I have loved being in Student government and serving as the Freshman and Sophomore class president. Merit is a great school and I’ve been able to be a part of such an amazing class! My goal this next year is to help everyone reach out to each other and to do it through positivity and genuine kindness. One small smile can make one big difference! If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the leadership positions I’ve been in, it’s that you never know what others are going through. It’s so important to be kind to everyone you meet. Our junior class theme is “Determination- Know you can.” I am determined to help others know that they are capable of achieving their goals and leaving an inspiring legacy behind them! Let’s make it an awesome year!
Junior Class Vice President
My name is Breeze. I am running for junior class vice president because I want to meet new people and help make decisions to better our school.
I enjoy playing basketball, flipping on my tramp, and learning new sports. I’ve just started at Merit this past year and I’ve had lots of awesome opportunities to serve students and meet a lot of people and with those experiences, I want to help students be able to have a voice in whatever they need or want.
Junior Class Secretary
My fellow Ameritans, I’ve got the position for Junior class secretary in my sights! I am running because I want to get to know you better, and have a great time working with you and serving you. I’m part of the orchestra and theater, and have had a lot of fun in art classes like ceramics and woodshop. I have had some great times throughout my years at Merit, and am ready for more! You people are amazing, and I hope to gain the honor of serving as your class secretary.
Sophmore Class President
My name is Angelina Tanner, but everyone calls me Angel. I am 15 years old. I have 9 older siblings. I play softball, volleyball, and basketball. I participate in competitive ballroom and I play the piano. I love going on hikes with my sister and trying new things, and I know too many TikTok dances for my own good.
I would like to be Sophomore Class President, because I would like to help all of the incoming Sophomores feel like they belong and that they have a place. I also would prioritize having events to make up for what we missed out on in the previous year. I will organize Sophomore assemblies, field trips, and dances. Thanks for your votes and let’s go Knights!
Sophmore Class Vice President
My name is Emma Palmer and I’m running for Sophomore Vice President. A little about myself – I have two brothers, I love volleyball, and this was my first year at Merit. I was able to play on our volleyball team, participate in the play Harvey, and be on the cheer team. My goal for this upcoming 2020 school year is to get us as class and school to STAND UP as students, RISE UP as individuals, and continue to LIFT UP each other as leaders and as friends.
