Presidents’ Day Special: Meet The Presidents!

mount class boardYou voted (presumably), and now they reign: the Class Board presidents. But how much do you really know about your leaders beyond their punny slogans and catchy jingles? In honor of Presidents’ Day, a wonderful national holiday spent just like any other Monday, we give you the inside scoop on these four students who never get a day off.

What’s the one thing every president needs?

Spencer Penn, 2014: 
Gummy Bear Multi-Vitamins
Ariel Koren, 2015: Lots of Red Bull
Jesus Perez, 2016: Sleep.

If you could have your face on any US bill or coin, which would it be?

JY: A new two-cent coin, but that’s just my two cents!
The $2 Bill. You’ll find me at the bannnkk.

Which US president do you feel you emulate most?

JY: Daniel Day-Lewis..er, I mean Lincoln

Hi, Penn, and Penn.

I graduated in 2007.

I’m your President in 2020. My friend from Medord, PAUL LATTERMAN, will be your President in 2016.
