Executive Candidates Advocate for Student Representation in StuCo Election

Executive officers are a crucial part of StuCo, leading the entirety of the organization.  These students help organize opportunities and events, ensuring the continued success of StuCo initiatives.

Below is more information about each of the candidates running for an executive officer position:

Sheevani Talati ‘24: Executive President Candidate Advocates For a Close Student Body

Sheevani Talati ‘24, who currently holds the position of StuCo Executive Secretary, considers StuCo her “second-family”, prioritizing an increased sense of unity among the student body as she runs for the Executive President position.

“By implementing more officer bonding activities such as field trips and organizing more events like Mr. Warrior, opportunities for students to bond and promote a united school spirit would be more frequent,” Talati said.

Talati aims to expand inclusivity among the Westwood student body and make StuCo a reliable community through increasing marketing and student engagement. 

“StuCo is about finding your voice and about serving your community for the better,” Talati said. “[It] has allowed me to grow so much, and I hope that more people are able to join this wonderful community and do the same.”


Maya Granoff ‘24: Executive President Candidate Caters to Student Community

For the past four years, Executive President candidate Maya Granoff ‘24 has served her community through StuCo, and aims to fulfill the needs of the students as she enters her senior year.

“Right now, some of the events that we do either aren’t advertised or aren’t really catered or useful to our students,” Granoff said. “So that’s something that I want to change by being really intentional with what we do and inviting everyone to come to the events that we do.”

Having served this year as Executive Vice President, Granoff has a clear vision and experience.

“Student Council is all about what we can do for other people and how we can best serve our school,” Granoff said. “Part of it is also about just being a good student and being nice to people, no matter who they are, [or] how you know them.”


Tanvi Reddy ‘25: Executive Vice President Candidate

Executive Vice President candidate Tanvi Reddy ‘25 has three goals for the next year: to increase service opportunities and student connection, to gain more involvement with the Texas Association of Student Councils, and lastly to do a year-long fundraiser.

“One of the issues that I’ve noticed is that [StuCo is] not very accessible to students,” Reddy said. “We would have a shared calendar space or update spot for the student body so that they [can be] updated with our events. Lastly, [I aim] to do a year-long fundraiser, that would make it more accessible for students to participate in our fundraising, and also have a steady source of income to support our events.”

Reddy also aims to win the Outstanding Student Council award and to involve more students in the Top 10 Project, an annual service project for the state.

“[StuCo is] something I enjoy so much,” Reddy said. “I put my whole life into it, [and] I think showing passion at something just helps you perform better.”
