Student government[edit]

The Bingham High student government began in the 1910s. The first student body president on record was Dewey Miller, who led the miner student body during the 1917-1918 school year. In the 1920s student government at Bingham consisted of three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. The student body officers formed the executive branch with a president, vice president, secretary-treasurer, yell master, yearbook editor and business manager. The principal, representatives from all the classes, and two faculty members made up the legislative branch. The student body court, with a prosecuting attorney, judge, chief of police and a clerk, handled the judicial duties of interpreting the school constitution and maintaining discipline.[3]
