Skyline High School graduate Lindsay Scola was in town last weekend for the first time in quite a while.

She’s not famous, but she does work for two famous people. Scola was in the Seattle area to set up a rally for Democratic vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden, who visited Cheney Stadium in Tacoma on Oct. 19.

Scola, from the Skyline class of 2001, has been living out of her suitcase while working for the Barack Obama presidential campaign since March 2007. From the Iowa caucuses to Obama’s trip to Israel, Scola has spent nearly two years of her life hopping city-to-city to set up events for the campaign.
