Natalie - Desert Hills Middle School Treasurer!

Well today was election day at school for Natalie. She had made it through the first round of primary elections and now had to get up in front of the 6th and 7th grade students and give a speech. She was competing against 2 other students, both boys, and one of them was out of school at a band concert so he didn't have to give a speech. Doug went and watched her and said she did a good job (but she wasn't quite as animated as she was when she practiced for us & she needed to be a little louder). She seems to be very excited to be the school treasurer!!

She is our first child who has showed any interest in student government. When she started school she ran for class representative, which meant getting up in front of her class and giving a speech as to why she would be good to represent the class. Unfortunately she didn't win that election, but she wasn't too disappointed. I was so surprised when she came home a month ago and said "Mom I'm going to run for ASB Treasurer".

I am so happy for her, and I hope she enjoys this experience!!!!
