Students in the bleachers roar in excitement as the prom candidates perform to songs during the prom pep assembly on Friday, April 13. With the 2017-2018 school year almost finished, StuCo hosted the year’s final pep assembly.

For about a month, student body secretary junior Hannah Barnes worked with other StuCo members to prepare for the assembly. Together they had meetings to discuss what they wanted to say at the assembly.

“I like planning pep assemblies because it’s what gets the class really fired up,” Barnes said. “It’s a lot of work, but it comes together really awesome. You have to figure out all of the little intricate pieces like who needs to talk, who needs to be recognized, what games you want to play and all that fun stuff.”

A contest between the prom candidates, judged by teachers, was just one activity of many. Students from each grade had the chance to wrap teachers with toilet paper, the sophomores coming out on top with science teacher Jill Lloyd. Additionally, the prom candidates lip-synched and danced to throwback songs in honor of this year’s prom theme, ‘Dancing Through the Decades.’

Dressed in their matching ‘Vote for Pedro’ shirts, prom candidates Carter Lawson and Taylar Powers won the candidates dance-off. Junior class secretary Kate Backes enjoyed watching the candidates show off their dance moves.

“My favorite part was definitely the candidate game,” Backes said. “It’s a lot of fun and I like seeing all of them doing their goofy skits.”
