Sit Down With Mr. President

Student Profile: Blake Heyer

Staff Writer: Grant Witten

Woodstock High School has seen some amazing people in its days. It has seen some of the brightest, and possibly a few dull individuals. Many of these Woodstock students were Sixes Elementary Stars. As everybody knows, Sixes Stars shine the brightest. None, however, shines quite as brightly as this individual does.

Senior class president Blake Heyer is an extraordinary individual. He is a very involved man especially in middle schools. Why does he do this? He may have his reasons. For now, it is safe to assume that he does it simply because he is a great man.

It is said that he once ran from western Tokyo to eastern Greenland in less than 17 hours, while stills fulfilling every presidential duty he had. Is this a myth? No one will ever know. Is he a legend? No one will ever doubt it.
