At the end of each school year Spartan Assembly establishes the new members for the following year. Some are new members to Spartan Assembly, and there are also returning members that make up Spartan Assembly. This is always a change for Spartan Assembly as new members come in and try to get accustomed to the group. One thing that is changing for the 2017-2018 school year is a bigger change than just the change of members in Spartan Assembly. Tracy Lux, teacher, is resigning from her position as advisor of Spartan Assembly and will be replaced by Megan Dixon, teacher, as the new advisor of Spartan Assembly.

Lux said, “I have loved being able to work with students who are passionate and committed about making their school and their community a better place. I’ve really enjoyed watching those students grow and make decisions and take leaps and accept challenges. I have gotten tired, I am ready to allow somebody else to pick up the fire that the kids have, and to keep making our school the best that we can make it.” Lux was a beloved advisor of Spartan Assembly. Emma Horsfield, junior, will be a member of the executive team on Spartan Assembly. Horsfield said, “Although I will miss Mrs. Lux, and it will be a big change since she has had such a positive and direct impact on our success, I’m excited for the year to come and can’t wait to work with Mrs. Dixon.”

Dixon is very eager to take on the role as Spartan Assembly advisor. Dixon said, “This will be my first experience with advising a student group. This is my tenth year teaching, so I am excited that an opening has finally come up that I feel like I can really get behind. I really support the mission of Spartan Assembly in both instilling pride in our school but also focusing on our community. I think this is a very important thing to develop as a young person all the way through your life. The opportunities to help students become really good leaders is exciting to me. Over the five years that I have been here at PV, I have seen Spartan Assembly grow and become a leader in the school. I am excited to see where the next few years will take us.” The change to Spartan Assembly is big, but the members still expect to make a big impact in their school and community despite the changes.
