The South Pasadena City Council gave Lauren Kafkaloff, So Pas High School student body president, a proclamation naming Sept. 25 “National Voter Registration Day.”

Kafkaloff accepted the proclamation on behalf of the students at the High School and vowed to help register as many eligible voters as possible.

Mayor Pro Tem Marina Khubesrian offered the council’s help in raising awareness among the students about the importance of voting. Khubesrian appeared to offer Mayor Dr. Richard D. Schneider as the person who could go to the High School to drum up interest in voting, prompting Schneider and the rest of the council to chuckle.

Kafkaloff said she would gladly accept such assistance and would pass that information on to the rest of the school.
