People to Know

Reading Time: 2 minutes I may be talking to the student body president but by the way he constantly drums his fingers on his desk, you’d think he was the nervous one. Trevor Tooke reaches into his drawer and displays two drumsticks, explaining that he has a pair in his desk at all times.
