Article by Jason Schaefer On The Edge Student Reporter Edgewood Middle School
I interviewed our new school President Lucas Harvey. Lucas Harvey ran against Alex Koontz and Keagan Rice during the election this fall. Lucas won by an impressive landslide. I wanted to ask him about his presidency, recent school problems and what he was going to do to change this school.
The first thing I talked to Lucas about was why he chose to run for president.
“I wanted to take matters into my own hands and work with the principal to help make this school better,” stated Harvey. He also thinks of himself as a voice for the student body. “I thought it would be a way to get my point across,” he added.
The second question I asked him was what he was going to do this year.
“I want to add more strict bullying policies to help prevent bulling,” explained Harvey. “I also have an idea of modifying our toolkit time every Tuesday and Thursday because it seems pointless and designed to help only certain people.”
The last thing Lucas wants to do is change physical education uniforms because the girls disapproved of them.
I also quickly asked him his thoughts on the candy policy.
“I think there are pros and cons to this. A pro would be that if we find the source of the problem we could stop it. But a con is that it would effect everyone, not just a small minority.”
