Holt Named Final Mayor for a Day of 2016-17 School Year


A Grace Lutheran School student will be the last Mayor for a Day of Pocatello for the school year.

Eighth-grader Emmett Holt was selected after the school had an essay contest that asked students write about a person in United States history that they looked up to and Emmett chose to pen his about Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Emmett plays basketball and football and is an honor student at the school.

During his term May 9, Emmett will join Mayor Brian Blad in overseeing the operations of the City of Pocatello. Currently on the schedule are meetings with Pocatello Fire Department Chief David Gates and City of Pocatello Chief Information Officer Chris Sorensen.

The Mayor for a Day program is scheduled to return in September.

Students chosen to serve as a Mayor for a Day are selected by the school and a different school is represented each month.
