Jacoby Landskov is currently a sophomore at A-West and is in the Arvada West student council. As a member of StuCo, he is running for junior class president for the 2019-2020 school year. This is his second year being in StuCo, but he was also in student council in middle school.

“Student council in middle school was different, but it definitely helped me interact with people,” says Landskov.

Besides being in StuCo, Landskov is currently in Vocal Showcase, Mantastic Four, Varsity Men’s choir, and he has played baseball. He also helps out at the Denver Dream Center, a rescue mission center in Denver.

“I think that I represent a lot from this school,” says Landskov. 

I really want this position because I really want to be seen as a leader.

“I joined StuCo because it’s fun and I think it suits me very well because I like doing things and organizing, and making posters.”

Landskov was the committee head for trick or treat street and says, “that helped because I was responsible for a lot of things. So I could manage time and people and what to do. And I think that that’s gonna help if I’m Junior class president next year.”

He has put up posters, and has been telling people to vote for him and why they should.

“[I] just try to always smile so that people can see of I like this kid and I should vote for him because he was nice to me once.”

“I really want this position because I really want to be seen as a leader,” says Landskov.
