PRESIDENT

Bayley Scott

Hi, my name is Bayley Scott and I attend Fargo Davies High School. I’m so excited to serve as your new NDASC President, and can’t wait to work with you all! My platform centered around taking the initiative to create an impact. In other words, choosing to take action and create change. I’m looking forward to providing you with opportunities to create an impact throughout the year! I serve as the Vice President of my school’s Student Council, volunteer through Key Club, spend lots of time in High School Ministry and am a captain on my cross country team. I run both cross country and long distance track.

 

My favorite food group is potatoes, I’m obsessed with my yellow lab, Remi, and enjoy spending time traveling with friends and family. I prefer to spend time outdoors in the fresh air, and love to wakeboard, snowboard and wake surf. Thank you so much for the opportunity to serve you this year, and I’m beyond ecstatic to see everything we do!!

VICE PRESIDENT

Anja McDermid

Hi all:) my name is Anja McDermid and I am your NDASC Vice President. I am from Jamestown High School and I am ecstatic to represent you guys for the next year. My slogan was ‘There’s Always Someone Anja Side’ and my platform was bringing awareness to the fears, stress, and anxiety highschool students face. My plan of action for the next year is to bring student led counseling groups to schools around the state. It’s so important for students to have a place to turn when they are feeling anxious and overwhelmed which is why I am so excited to start implementing these support systems in our schools. I am involved in speech, drama, honor choirs, nhs, football training, DECA, and most importantly student council;)

 

I love to sing and I play piano and ukulele as well. In my free time I love hanging out with friends, long boarding, reading, writing music, and thrifting!! Lastly, one interesting fact about me is I was a barista at an artsy coffee shop😛
