On Tuesdays, we'll introduce the kids behind "High School Confidential." Today: Tuscola's GEMINI PETTRY.

The senior class president enjoys attending Tuscola — "we have a lot of good things going on" — and will get a chance to show off her Douglas County school Thursday when she takes over our Snapchat account. Follow along by searching for "news-gazette."

Here's more on Gemini:

I love Tuscola because ... it’s a small community where you can share memories with your friends at sporting events and extracurricular activities.

In 10 years, I’ll be ... starting a loving family and pursuing a career as a pediatric nurse practitioner.
