Governing the School of Aquinas is somewhat similar to the governing of the City of Chicago.
In directing the city, Major Richard Daly is the supreme power from which branches all authority.
A wide range of councils, varying in their area of jurisdiction, are under his domain.
Under His Honor's control are branches of the Police and Fire Departments, Bureau of Sanitation, and the Park District, plus numerous others.
In much the same manner, the government of Aquinas is run.
The President of the Student Council, Peggy Lyons, is the supreme word, directing various committes under her.
Civic, Service, and Publicity are the main branches of the council, although many problems of the school do not fall into these specific
categories, and yet are served by the council.
Thus, in the Student Council of Aquinas, the democratic way of government is developed, a training that will fully mature in the City Council of Chicago.
