Yale Student Body President Returns Home to Germantown

Germantown’s hometown hero, Kahlil Greene, paid a visit to Montgomery County in early July.

Greene, a Poolesville  High School alumnus, made headlines this year when he was elected the first black student body president of Yale University in its 318-year history.

Montgomery County Councilmember Craig Rice, who represents Germantown, met up with Greene at the Germantown Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, a place that Greene said was instrumental in making him the person he is today.

Greene told Rice he would participate in the Boys & Girls Club after school activities and camps when from 2007 to 2013.

“I think it’s so important to support your local Boys & Girls Club, your local community center because — like they say — it takes a town, or it takes a village, it takes a community to raise someone and Boys & Girls Club was that community for so many of us,” Greene told Rice.

Greene told Rice he’s interested in pursuing politics or economics as a career.
