We had some fantastic competition in this year's race for class president! Each class voted on two nominees, then after a week of campaigning, we heard the nominees' speeches and a debate, then students voted for class president. The states the students had chosen turned out to be their Electoral College votes, which was a crazy twist! All of the nominees did a fantastic job and will make great class presidents and vice presidents!
