Sarah Hall is a rising Senior at Hanover High School. She looks forward to working as the Political Director for NHHSD and bringing attention and action to current issues. Starting with her US History class in sophomore year and a semester at the Senate Page School, her passion for politics, especially foreign affairs, has increased significantly. In addition to politics, she loves reading and learning about the basic underpinnings of human nature that govern how our society functions. She worked as the Yearbook Editor-in-Chief for the past five months which taught her the importance of working collaboratively on challenging goals, a skill she hopes to bring to her new position.
Molly is a rising junior at Philips Exeter. She has had a passion to make change in our community, state, country, and the world ever since she learned about political policy. Aside from politics, she adores surfing, playing volleyball and tennis, meeting new people, volunteering locally, and passing time with family and friends! She is so thrilled to be the new membership director and represent/support you all!
Kate Peters is a rising senior at Hollis-Brookline High School. She is thrilled to be the new Deputy Communications Director during the 2022-2023 school year.

She will channel these values into my new role as Diversity Director. Along with her interest in politics, she plays volleyball, does track and field, and likes to pick up art projects like painting and crocheting.
Lauren Hall is a rising senior at Hanover High School. Her interest in politics was sparked and shaped while she served as a US Senate Page this past spring. After the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Senator Murphy demanded of his fellow senators: "What are we doing? Why are you here if not to solve a problem as existential as this?" His improvised call for action cut through the Senate’s usual scripted speeches, and, sitting on the rostrum in front of him, Lauren realized just how passionate some government officials are about trying to create change. Change can come through any number of avenues, but as a person who loves school, she believes that education is one of the most powerful tools a government can use when solving its problems. When her time is not otherwise consumed, she enjoys reading, drawing, listening to Paul Simon, and existing in New Hampshire.
