Piney Grove Middle School held the national convention for the presidential election in its gymnasium Thursday. Fortunately, there was no Democratic or Republican politicking during the event, just Skittles, Barbie dolls, minions and other creative themes. For the fourth year, the school held its student forum convention, which divides eighth-graders into fun electoral colleges, such as the State of Old People and the State of Zombies.
