The Falcon

Peter Ryan
Peter Ryan is a senior at Friends Select School. He currently serves as President of Student Government, Co-Clerk of QUAKE, and founding leader of Cricket Club, Crustacean Club, and Discourse Club. Peter, an Aquarius, likes discussing sports, culture, politics, and trivial debate topics with literally anyone with a pulse. You can often find him asking vague and unimportant questions to his classmates, or on the golf course.
