Leading with Our Serve
Leadership is a ministry and service to others. Leaders at Westminster are called to be role models, living and growing in the grace and wisdom of God.
- Chapel Band
Band members direct and lead the Westminster community in worship, practice weekly, and possess a teachable, cooperative spirit as they must perform music from a variety of worship styles.
- Chapel Leadership Team
Members of the chapel leadership team plan the chapel theme, participate in leading Chapel, contact potential speakers, meet weekly with the administrative chapel leadership team, and pray for faculty, staff, and students throughout the year.
- Club Officers
Club officers are appointed by the club sponsor or elected by the club members. Students work with the club sponsor to plan and carry out club activities. Club officers also function as a team leader for students and as a point of contact for faculty/parent leadership.
- Cultural Ambassadors
Cultural Ambassadors serve as authorized student representatives to our new international students and to our international guests visiting our school through our global partnerships. They are committed to serving our new international students during New International Student Orientation the first two weeks of August, developing and maintaining a plan to assist the new international students in becoming a part of the larger Westminster student body throughout the year, and welcoming/assisting students visiting Westminster from our partner schools throughout the school year.
- Middle School Leadership Team
Eighth-grade students help plan school events, including Carnival and Christmas tree decorating, as part of the Middle School Leadership Team.
- National Honors Society (NHS)
NHS officers lead Westminster’s National Honors Society. Officers help select and plan NHS service projects and help lead on service days. Officers perform administrative tasks such as creating memos, mailing letters, collecting member dues, and tracking service hours. NHS officers also organize and speak at the induction ceremony in the fall.
NHS officers must first be members before being selected for officership. Students in grades 10–12 with a 3.50 unweighted cumulative GPA or above are invited to apply for membership each September. NHS members must also complete 30 individual service hours per year.
- Peer Counselors (PCs)
As Peer Counselors, juniors and seniors work with 7th and 8th graders, serving as a godly role model. Students must be honest, caring, morally upright, mature, and responsible. Peer Counselors are leaders with a cooperative spirit and, most of all, a servant’s heart.
- Student Ambassadors
An ambassador serves as an official student representative to adults and students who are seeking information about our school community. Participants should enjoy meeting new people and engaging in positive conversation about Westminster. Good communication skills and manners are highly valued in this leadership position. Students must understand this is a service commitment to God first and secondly to the Westminster community.
Ambassadors should have a general knowledge of all facets of the school including spiritual life, academics, and cocurricular activities. Ambassadors will attend meetings during Advisory to discuss and plan for events such as Open House, Orientation, IGNite, etc. They must commit to serve at selected school events that are, for the most part, not during school hours. Between hosting events, ambassadors will serve by writing notes of welcome to prospective students, expressing great esprit de corps for Westminster among the student body, and assist as needed.
- Student Council
Students interested in participating in Student Council have two options when it comes to their level of engagement: officers and members.
Student Council Officers
Officers work together to serve as the voice of the student body, act as a liaison between the student body and the administration, seek ways to improve school spirit and build community, seek ways to serve beyond the walls of Westminster, and more.
Student Council Members
Members work alongside the officers to carry out the roles and responsibilities of Student Council and are expected to serve on various committees throughout the year.
