Hey everyone! My name is Katherine Young, your MJCL President. I go to Mercy High School, and have been taking Latin for all 4 years of my high school career. My favorite part of Latin is learning its connections to our modern world, and celebrating the amazing study of the classics. I hope to take what I learned from last year's conference and work to make this year's conference even better. I look forward to working with the other officers to achieve this goal, and bring you another amazing year of MJCL!

Hello everyone, I'm your Vice-President Aeres Zhou. MJCL has been one of my favorite activities since middle school, and the classics have been one of my favorite subjects throughout my entire life. I haven't had a full MJCL conference since middle school, and since I am a senior, I will work extra hard to make the 2023 MJCL a success. The study of classics will definitely follow me into college, where I hope to study Ancient Greek on top of Latin. I look forward to a wonderful year of the Classics!
Salvete, omnes! My name is Isabella Merucci and I am the secretary/historian for the 2022-2023 year. This is my 4th year taking Latin and I am currently a senior in AP Latin at Mercy High School. I had so much fun at the convention last year and am very excited to be a part of it this year. I look forward to writing articles and organizing fun activities for this year’s members. I am also interested in pursuing classics as a minor or double major as I attend college next year.

Student officers are high school students in grades 10-12. They have shown maturity, leadership, and responsibility in your school JCL chapter. Elected officers arrange to attend up to four meetings in Michigan, located in various parts of the state near the upcoming conference. Student officers attend with their teacher, who is responsible for seeing that the student officer upholds his/her duties.
Teachers may select no more than THREE students to run for officers. Students are given a form to obtain the signatures of their parents, teacher, and themselves to show that they have permission to run for an office. The permission forms are sent to the student who is parliamentarian for the year. This student compiles a list of students running for offices, making sure that only two students run for an office. If there are more than two, the parliamentarian contacts the most recent student who has submitted a permission slip and asks the student to select a different office.
At the spring conference, the candidates prepare brief speeches to give to the entire group at the assembly prior to the voting. At the conclusion of the speeches, the parliamentarian supplies each chapter with a ballot so the school may vote for TWO. They may vote twice for the same candidate or split the vote with one for each of the two people running. The votes are tallied, and the winners are announced during the awards assembly. New officers are officially sworn in at a ceremony. Officers receive an official NJCL pin.
Teachers: Provide this information to all students interested in running for an office along with the following application. Applications will be considered in the order in which they are received.
