PG High Student Body President Resigns Over Racial Incidents

Said the N word while being white. Big no no unless making a rap song.

The president of the Pacific Grove High School Associated Student Body, Anthony Biondi, resigned today after nearly two weeks of pressure from the community to have him removed. Anger was mounting after photos of him posting with a Confederate flag and mock weapons in 2020 and a video of him saying the N-word in 2019 were circulated after his election in May.

On Aug. 7, a change.org petition was started by another student calling for him to be recalled. As of today there are over 600 signatures on the petition.

The announcement of Biondi’s resignation came from PGHS Principal Lito Garcia in an email to families Thursday morning, Aug. 19. It was sent just hours before tonight’s Pacific Grove Unified School District board meeting, where it was expected that numerous parents, students and community members would demand his removal.
