Thor Lund, a 2009 McKinney High graduate, has recently gained national attention for all the wrong reasons. Lund, last year’s student government president at the University of Texas, has been apologizing for a sexist rant to which the HuffingtonPost.com gave attention to, even after it was taken down. Also, nationally known Jezebel.com offered a different take on Lund’s piece.
In June of 2012, TSB recognized Lund and then-UT student body vice president Wills Brown as they settled into their newly elected roles. The pair had known each other early in life at Valley Creek Elementary in McKinney before finding themselves side by side at the SGA in Austin.
