A student at Franklin Middle School will take the reins of the City of Pocatello later this month as the newest Mayor for a Day.
Seventh-grader Autumn Thomson’s term will begin the morning of April 26. Thomson was selected for the job by her classmates in the Student Leadership Class with Principal Patrick Vereecken noting her natural leadership abilities.
“There are a number of ways to lead an organization,” said Mayor Brian Blad. “I’m interested to see how Mayor for a Day Thomson will choose to lead our city.”
Thomson’s term will wrap up later that afternoon.
Each month, a new Mayor for a Day is selected from the city’s middle and high schools. The selection is made by the school and a different school is represented each month.
