Officer positions help
So I’m currently a junior and Key Club Historian at my school. We are holding elections at our April meeting and my sponsor was asking us who’s running... the one position I wanted to run for is no longer being offered lol (it’s senior representative). I’m scared that I won’t be elected again for a position senior year and I’m thinking about running historian again. The chances of me getting it are pretty slim honesty, but we’ll see how it goes. I was just wondering if I should put this on my college application even if I only had an officer position one year. I know I will be Vice President of another organization next year and I will be hopefully Editor in Chief of the school newspaper next year as well... I’m trying to get into University of Florida, so I’m hoping this doesn’t ruin my university chances lol.
Thanks for the help!

I think it makes sense for you to run again. If you end up getting the position that's a positive for your application. Even without getting an officer position I think you should still put it on your application, it will show you are still committed to the club. You won't know without trying.
Plus, if you do get Vice President and Editor-in-Chief for the other clubs those are high leadership positions and will be looked at positively by schools. But not having an officer position for one year of Key Club will not ruin your chances at University of Florida
