What can I do to make this speech more appealing to a high school audience and make it funnier?

Good morning class of 2009, I'm -------- and I want to be your Class President. I am honored to be among this elite group of candidates. Class president is a very important job and should be filled by the best candidate possible. I feel that I am that candidate for numerous reasons. Some of my peers often describe me as respectful, honest, intelligent, reliable, gracious, passionate, and super-duper. With the use all of these imperative traits, I will be able to do what is in the best interest of all of us and continue the momentum that has already been created in raising funds for our senior prom, an event that is sure to be a highlight of our life experiences. My dedication to service as well as my good interpersonal and organizational skills will be tools essential to my success as a student leader. I've assisted a handful of major charities this past year and have helped to raise money for great causes all over the world. A certain program that I am determined to bring to Kennedy is called Invisible Children. With our help, we can build lives for African children on whom the world has turned its back. The program that we can get involved in is called Schools For Schools where we pick a school to be built in Uganda and we raise money for it. In terms of accomplishments, I feel that more can be done. I see my primary responsibilities as running organized and effective meetings, overseeing all class officers and providing them with tools and guidance to help them in their work, and working with all members of the --------- High School community. This past year, our class has participated in various charitable organizations and has raised small amounts of money through bakes sales and candy sales. This may be news to some of you and that's a problem because we should all be doing our part. We need to be doing more for our local community as well as our global community and I will make it happen. Additionally, our class hasn't been represented well at school functions the past two years and I'm prepared to change that. I'm not sure what design we'll have on our class night shirts next year but I promise that if it's up to me, it'll be amazing and well worth the purchase. It will not just be the name of our class on a white shirt. The lack of results from the current administration has been one of the major factors in my decision to run for President. I am set to do all that is in my power to make our class the best it has ever been. Winning the trust of each and every one of you is what means the most to me. Together as a class, we can change the world, but first we need a change in leadership. If you like to settle for less than greatness, vote for one of the others behind me; but if you're ready to see the class of 2009 make miracles, I'm your man. My name is ------------ and I want to be your Class President.
