Student Body President, Brooke, Goes to State :-)

Brooke and six other LBJ Middle School Students got to attend the New Mexico State Student Council Meeting this past February 12-14, 2009. Brooke attended as her school's student body president. Her school came out the big winner out of all the other middle schools in the state by winning a majority of the awards:
  • "Advisor of the Year" for Barbara Anderson, aka Miss Andy (Brooke sent in a nominating letter on her behalf).
  • "Best Roll Call" as voted on by the judges.
  • "Best Roll Call" as voted on by the students.
  • "Middle School Project of the Year" for their Martinez Town service project.
  • "Exemplary Middle School Student Council of the Year."
Here are a few pictures from the event. The theme was "The Wonderful World of Leadership" (Disney theme):

(Back row l-r): Brooke--Student Body President, Miss Andy--Advisor, Kyle Piersol--Student Body Vice President, Makenzie Hamilton--Student Body Secretary, Alex Leeds--Representative. (Front row l-r): Candace Burton--8th Grade Class President, Kayleigh Amershek--7th Grade Class President, Melissa Auh--Historian.

Kyle was a good sport for playing "Snow White" in their winning roll call. The girls, as you can see were the 6 dwarfs. Brooke (back left in green hat and big ears) was "Sleepy."

Aw man, I can't believe Coach Andy is still at LBJ! She was the best teacher. I loved her! I think she was the first person to call me Tuck. And then Emily was Tuck Jr. And Matt was Tuck III.
