MAH V.jpg​Hello! My name is Vincent Mah, and I am one of your Co-Presidents of Student Council for 2020-2021. I look forward to the year ahead, despite the challenges brought about by COVID-19. Now more than ever will we need to stay connected as a community, and I will be working with my fellow Co-Presidents to lead the council by chairing meetings and serving the community by planning online events.

Hello, my name is Graham Best, I use He/Him pronouns, and I am one of your student council presidents this year. As one of our Presidents, my duties range from chairing student council meetings to planning involvement activities for our junior grades.

That is why my co-presidents and I are doing what we can to make our school, and our student council, a safe place for everyone. Regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, or religion, we want every student to feel like they can be themselves and have a place with us at Handsworth.

Handsworth is incredibly well-rounded, and speaking from experience, I strongly encourage everyone to participate in our elective and club communities as it is truly a highlight of high school.

Kayleigh Stahler
Stahler K.jpgHola, My name is Kayleigh Stahler, and I'm so unbelievable grateful to your 2020-2021 Student Council Secretary!  If you don’t already know me, I’m the acting President of Handsworth’s Pride Club, a Grade 8 retreat leader, and a former member of our Handsworth Basketball team where I was lucky enough to play alongside fellow Royals. With everything that’s going on right now, I know from experience that it can get hard sometimes, so just remember that we’re all in this together. From what I’ve seen and know, Handsworth is full of such caring and compassionate people. Do your best to get out there and enjoy high school while it lasts, and I just wanted to say that it’s totally okay to take a break. That being said, as Secretary, my job is to essentially keep track of all upcoming events, so if you have a suggestion or request, even just a question, feel free to contact me anytime over teams or via email at I can promise that I’ll get back to you as soon as I can! Stay safe Handsworth!

Hello, my name is Ridge, and I am this year's Vice President. I have been on student council since grade 8, giving me way too many years (4 years) of experience on council, one of those as an exec member and my experience is still growing with my 5th year. I do many other helpful activities around the school community, such as being a leader on the grade 8 retreat or running my own club.
