Little did I know, Corey’s mornings are more hectic than most. As a day student, that includes sharing a bathroom with two siblings and checking his tires to ensure he and his brother can make their way to The Hill. Once on campus, he sits down to breakfast in the Dining Commons, because, you know, “gotta get that protein.” Then, he’s off.
As student body president, he always has a packed agenda. His first stop is Mrs. Chute’s office, where he’ll discuss the plan for all school meeting – among other presidential duties. Next up is Mr. Christensen for AP statistics. Then, after seventy minutes of “what can feel more like English class than mathematics,” it’s time for all school meeting. Class is let out five minutes early so Corey has time to beat the rush to the Bodman. After leading the meeting, he heads off to his advisory, who, he states, he has a very special relationship with. For Corey, advisory consists of an irreplaceable group of students and each meeting brings “a lot of sports conversations blended with political discourse.” Then, it’s “time to fill up,” as Corey puts it. “I’ve been trying to get a salad in at least three times a week,” he notes, but “it’s more about the meats.” After he’s gotten his protein in (and maybe some greens), it’s time for A-period, psychology with Mrs. Whitestone. “It’s a delight,” he says, after noting the Jolly Ranchers Whitestone gives out to her class.
Last on the agenda is economics, and as he wants to go on to study political science next year, Corey finds the class, to say the least, extremely relevant. What time is it? Oh, between 3:00 and 3:05? Well, that means it’s time to hit the gym in the Alfond Athletics Center. When it comes to the gym, Corey says music is everything. “It’s always the tunes. A lot of Drake in my rotation. Always.” When he finally arrives home, he’s eager to “see what his dog, Barry, a plott hound puppy, got into.” He does some homework and takes a bath and that, folks, concludes a day in the life of Cordell Perne: Kents Hill School student body president, friend to most and voice for all.
