It’s a lofty goal, especially when considering that schools are not too far removed from a historical pandemic, but San Marino High School ASB President Nora Chang not surprisingly is hoping to inspire togetherness among an electorate that has become way too familiar with the notion of 6 feet of separation.
“I have several goals for ASB this year,” said the senior, who was elected to the position during the last school year, along with Vice President Sophia An. “This includes keeping everyone involved throughout the school year, whether it be through dances, school-spirit activities, assemblies, sports games or new exciting events.”
This is the third year Chang has been involved in ASB, having previously served as sophomore and junior class president. Aside from ASB, Chang plays varsity basketball and is a member of the Red Cross Club, the Random Acts of Kindness Club, Medical Youth of San Marino and the Huntington Humanities seminar.
She has also been involved with IYTC — International Youth Tobacco Control — a nonprofit that started in San Marino and has now expanded to 200 members across the globe and has positively impacted 15 million youths.
“I hope to help relieve some of the pressure and anxiety students at our school face by creating a more fun and positive environment,” said Chang, who has attended San Marino schools her entire life, including Carver Elementary and Huntington Middle School.
Nora is the daughter of David Chang and Yu-Ming Wei and has a younger sister, Evie, who is an 8th-grader at Huntington Middle School.
