I am pleased to introduce you to the Student Council President of Colbert Elementary for the 2008-2009 school year. This is the 3rd year that Cooper has been elected into Student Council, as a 6th grader they get to become officers. Cooper's job as president is to oversee the meetings and keep them running smoothly. The 3 officers take turns and get to do the morning announcements, which includes saying the Pledge of Allegiance and telling the students the lunch menu over the intercom. Cooper was a bit nervous his first day and told the kids they were having toasted salad (instead of tossed) and chilled peppers (instead of pears). I thought it was pretty funny but apparently he thought it was quite embarrassing. Too bad he is too young because I think he would give Obama and McCain a run for their money. Way to go Coop, you make us so proud!
