Over the weekend of October 8th, many students got to witness the cheers and excitement of the marathoners as they passed Whitney Young’s campus. But before that took place, there was another race that started the Wednesday prior: The Senior Class Officer Elections. Seven students ran for four spots (3 for prez, 2 for VP, and 1 for Secretary/Treasurer). After the weekend passed, the school revealed the next lineup of officers.

At president, Brooke Gist stole the show, impressing everyone with her experience as captain of the Guys and Dolls team and as 7th grade president. She has a lot of involvement within the community and can be viewed as a leader and a role model of the school.
