Leland Spangler
Leland Spangler is more than just an infamous meme at Manitou High School. The senior is Vice President of the student body, and he likes to say he rules his peers with impunity. His favorite color is infrared because he can't fathom how being able to see in infrared would look like. He has a surprisingly educated opinion on the existence of aliens. His disgust for beets is extreme and unwavering, to the point that he won't even eat out of the same pan that beets are cooked in. When faced with bubble wrap, he would pop it, even if that meant committing an act of vandalism, but large bubbles are the only ones worth the sacrifice. Leland takes inspiration from his teachers, and aspires to be a bit like all of them. In the future, his goals are to be happy, work outside, and leave the Earth a better place than how he found it.
