Campaign frenzy has swept through the halls of TMA!
As District residents over the age of 18 prepare to vote in the midterm elections on November 2, Thurgood Marshall Academy students will be gearing up for a vote of their own. Election Day will feature 34 students hoping to secure a position in the Student Government as School President, School Vice-President, School Treasurer, School Secretary, or Class Representative.
Students elected to represent the student body are expected to be strong leaders, with a commitment to public service and unwavering convictions concerning TMA’s efforts to become a more effective institution.
Candidates will give speeches next week during class lunches and the school wide pep rally in a final attempt to secure votes.
