Seniors Ross Reyes and Alyssa Perkins share the duties of senior executive delegate for the House of Spirit, and their different approaches blend well for the success of the House. Ross is the resource for House members to come to with questions, and Alyssa brings ideas and tries to make the meetings fun.
Alyssa said her leadership style was inspired by Abbi Hamm ’16, who was the executive delegate when Alyssa was a freshman.
“Abbi was really energetic and involved,” Alyssa said. “I think it’s cool that I can take on that kind of role for the freshmen so they can feel comfortable. I also try to be fun and energetic to make things entertaining.”
Ross is good at planning, and he helped match House members’ skills and interests to place them in the best spots for the Guerin Day competition in late September. He previously was the sophomore and junior delegate for the House. He is a member of the Quick Recall team, which finished up its regular season last week, and was in Honk!, Providence Singers, and Popcorn Players. Next semester, he will have a role in Freaky Friday, the spring musical.
Alyssa is new to House leadership but not in being a leader. She is a cheerleader, and those skills come in handy as she works with the House. She recently presented an idea for the House to do a Valentine’s Day service project in which the members will sell candy grams to benefit the American Red Cross. She said she is enjoying her House leadership role and building unity in the House.
“I enjoy how the classes are coming together,” she said.
Ross said he likes helping students express their ideas and having input into school activities.
“I like to be involved with what we’re doing,” he said.
