Baton Rouge, LA – Just less than twenty-four hours before all of America would cast their votes for the 45th Presidents of the United States, the members of the Outstanding Mature Girlz (O.M.G.) Club made their way to the polls. Candidate hopefuls gave brief speeches to their peers, in hopes of becoming the next leaders of the all-girls club during the 2016 -2017 school year.
“I love that I can run for President, it reassures me that I can do anything,” said Shy’Janae Hookfin who stunned her peers with a unanimous vote. Students also elected Chriterra Brumfield - Vice President, Ariel Scott - Secretary, J’Qualene Floyd - Treasurer, Shermil Myles - Parliamentarian, Symone Bryer - iReporter, and Khristian Muse - Chairman.
The O.M.G. Club is an in-school and out-of-school club designed to create fun, informative public awareness platforms for girls in and around the state of Louisiana, to help service and educate them in the areas of HIV/AIDS and all other STD, and health related fields.
This club also includes fun project based activities that will help girls learn new skillsets, all while promoting a healthy body, mind and spirit!
