Q: What do you enjoy about Doherty?
A: Definity the sports games!

Q: Have you been in student council before, if not what is something like it that you have been involved in?

A: I play a lot of sports and I am the captain of most of them. I believe I am a good leader in that aspect!

Q: What is Doherty’s biggest problem and how would you fix it?
A: I think Morale is Doherty’s biggest problem. My sister used to go here, and the Morale was crazy, so I think it is something we need to fix. Hopefully, next year we can change that!

Q: What do you think the position you are running for entails?
A: During fall we do Harvest of Love, and the Student Body President helps run that. They are the chair to its committee. They also do a lot of the background stuff that not many people see, but it is something I want to do!
