Disappointedly standing at 6 feet, Ricky Cooks is Texas High’s nicest yet sassiest student. As Student Body President, it’s his duty to stay on top of things and make sure everyone’s having a good time. However, he’s frequently accused of doing the complete opposite. Fun-loving and always up for a good time, Ricky believes in school spirit, the Oxford Comma, Harambe and the Texas Longhorns. Find him ruling the world in thirty years… it’s on his bucket list.
