Both of us appreciate our community and will do as much as we can to give back to the community as it has given to us. From our time in office, we have achieved our goals and represented our class with pride and dignity along with pushing for more student activities all year long. Our leadership capabilities are undeniable. Devin has attended 3 years of National Youth Leadership Training along with leadership training in Washington D.C. Being involved in the band as a Drum Major along with Key Club, Student Council, National Honor Society, Theater, Relay For Life, and Show Choir.

Statement from Kennedi Adkins and Devon Kuhn:
To keep this short, Me (Kennedi Adkins) and Devon Kuhn are running for Student Body President and Vice President for the 2021-2022 school year because we want to change things up. These last two years have been met with unfulfilled expectations and a lack of excitement due to Covid-19. With next year being our last, we want to use every chance we have to squeeze in as much excitement and new traditions as possible. We will work with administration to introduce new events throughout the school year. There are also obvious issues that we and many other people feel need to be addressed throughout the school. However, many students don't know who to go to for real change to happen. We are going to make it easier for any student to express their concerns, needs, and ideas with an anonymous drop box located somewhere in the school. Vote for us so that everyone can have a say in the next year's changes.
