A student from Gem Prep: Pocatello will be Mayor for a Day March 27.
Sixth-grader Riley Robinson is stepping into the role as the City’s chief executive that Wednesday. His schedule will see him meeting with the City’s Finance Department staff, attending a meeting with Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25, and getting an inside view of City government.
According to Gem Prep: Pocatello Principal Gerald Love, Riley is “a bright student with ambitious goals” and “students respect him due to the kindness he demonstrates on a daily basis.”
Riley’s interests include writing, coding, and going camping with his family. Later in life, he looks to be an aerospace engineer.
During the school year, a new Mayor for a Day is chosen from the city’s middle and high schools once a month. The selection is made by the school and a different school is represented each month.
