Other officers at the Gonzales school are Kiyah Ursin, vice president; Ali Burt, secretary; Derica Levy, treasurer; and Mitchell, reporter.

Finley, 11, said she was inspired by President Barack Obama to run for office.

“I hope one day I can become the first female president,” Finley said. “I’ve been going to this school since I was in pre-K, so it is an honor to be the president of the Beta Club.”

Mitchell said she wanted to be club reporter because she loves to talk, read books and “educate people on the latest news,” she said.

The club includes fourth-grade members Hannah Bell, Shaun Bennett, Tiffany Celaya, Serenity Helaire, Kierra Lynn Irvin, Tanner Irvin, Jayde Jackson, Randall Jouette, Karim Mazlum, Taylor Morgan, Sarah Villar and Caleb Williams.

The club will host a Mardi Gras dance Friday to raise money for a trip, the release said.
