Four weeks ago this Sunday, her close friend Gerard Gomez was shot to death at a party. She used the training to deal with the intense grief from the loss of her friend and help her fellow students cope with the tragedy. Here, Butler gets a high five from fellow SGA member Mitchell Shirley, also a junior, as she sells tickets to homecoming at Mount Vernon High School on Friday, October 11, 2013.
