StuCo hosts the school’s first Senior Sunrise

Seniors watched the sunrise on the football field before school Wednesday, October 18

StuCo held the school’s first Senior Sunrise before school Wednesday, Oct. 18. During the event, seniors gathered on the north side of the football field to watch the sunrise.

StuCo sponsor Faith Bilyeu believes that the ideal conditions of the morning made the event enjoyable.

“It was a beautiful morning and we had a really nice sunrise for it,” Bilyeu said. “So with the weather being so good and I think we had a good group of seniors out there, I think that they really enjoyed it.”

The tradition of Senior Sunrise has already existed in many schools across the country. Student body secretary Elly VanRheen explains how StuCo learned about it. 

“There are lots of other schools in the area that do a Senior Sunrise, and through social media it was a super fun and easy event that I thought we should put on for our seniors,” VanRheen said.

VanRheen explains the preparation that went into Senior Sunrise. 

“There wasn’t a ton of prep that StuCo had to do,” VanRheen said. “I did most of it along with [student body president] Lucy Roy in the planning process, but it mainly consisted of creating things to share on social media and then I picked up donuts for everyone the morning of.”

Because StuCo planned the Senior Sunrise on a Wednesday, seniors had the opportunity to spend more time with their friends before school since classes did not begin until 8:20 a.m..

“I think doing it on a Wednesday, when it was a late start, worked out really well,” Bilyeu said. “They could go to see the sunrise and then they could go grab breakfast with their friends before coming back to school.”

Senior Bridgit Duffin, one of many seniors that attended the event, believes that adding Senior Sunrise to the many other senior traditions was a great idea. 

“It was good grade bonding and had great photos,” Duffin said. “Why not just have another fun activity ready to go?”
