… Mr. Xavier Newman an honor student with a 98% attendance record and 3.5 grade point average.  As his parents stood behind Newman, the current Mayor of Desoto Carl Sherman announced with great pride that the Desoto Independent School District has made it their mission to prepare students academically but also as problem solvers, critical thinkers and for leadership.  So it was proclaimed that today the City of DeSoto would welcome the service of their new Mayor for A Day. Mayor Sherman chuckled as he read passages from Newman’s submission essay where he’d informed the Mayor that “he may be making changes and one day give Mayor Sherman a run for his money.”
