It has come to our attention that the Aliso Niguel ASB does not want to consider "2020 vision" or "2020 the future is clear" as class slogans, despite these two phrases being the most popular choices since the class of 2020 was in freshman year. The current options they are promoting, which is "2020 bet" and "20rry not 20rry," are awkward and not representative of the student body. 

"2020 vision" or "2020 the future is clear" represents the class of 2020 the best as it indicates our hope for a better future. Our class will be one of the generations that will profoundly shape the world in the future, and "2020 vision" will be the perfect slogan to capture that. The other slogans do not communicate this deeper meaning and are relatively more shallow. We are an intelligent class with an amazing potential to be the change the future needs. "2020 perfect vision" is the perfect opportunity to use this original and creative slogan that is an embodiment of what our class truly desires. 

Currently, the ANHS ASB's current argument against using this slogan is that the majority of people do not like it. This is terribly wrong, as the surveying method they used did not properly represent the whole population of the class of 2020. The instagram account @anhs.2020 only has 385 followers, while the actual class population of seniors is approximately 750 people based on the 2016 census. Keep in mind that this is the 2016 census, and our school population has grown since, indicating that we have more than 750 people in the senior class. In addition to this, not all of @anhs.2020's followers participated in the survey. To have less than 385 people represent a population of over 750 people is undemocratic and untrue to the actual scientific method of population surveys. 

Another current argument of ANHS ASB is that other schools are also doing this slogan. This should not be a problem; what our slogan is should reflect what the student body actually wants and shouldn't be impacted by what other schools are doing. Even if our slogans end up being similar, that should not matter that much. After all, it represents our generation's extraordinary ability for hope and its capacity for progress. If we are united under that slogan, I think we can all find pride in knowing that we all have the same vision for the future. 

We simply want the slogan to represent want the student body truly wants, and not just what people in ASB want or what a small fraction of the student body believes. Our legacy as class of 2020 greatly hinges on a slogan -- slogans define a person or an idea, just as how slogans are crucial in a presidential election.

We understand ASB is working hard to provide the best senior year experience possible for the class of 2020. We respect ASB and their tireless efforts to do so. However, deciding a slogan that does not represent the student body's wishes not only reflects badly on ASB's part, but misrepresents our entire class of 2020. We hope that with this petition, we are able to make "2020 vision" or "2020 the future is clear" as our slogans.
