Seniors dressed in costumes and got together to celebrate their completion of high school at Villa Cesare on Friday, April 21.

“I was Tinkerbell. I dressed up as Tinkerbell for a few reasons. One being that I wanted a group costume for two girls and one boy so Tinkerbell, Peter Pan and Wendy. Plus, I wanted a character who was blonde and that worked for that too,” Sarah Hermanek (12) said.

Awards were presented by Stefan Krajisnik (12) and Ruth Chen (12). Some of the awards given were, “most likely to be president”, “best beard” and “prettiest eyes.”

“I got ‘most likely to become famous.’ I don’t know if I want to necessarily become famous in my future. I think it was really sweet of people to vote for me,” Hannah Souronis (12) said.

The seniors spent most of their time on the dance floor, sharing sentimental moments and making new memories. The DJ played lots of different genres of music, from country to rap, and gave everyone an equal opportunity for a good time.

“The dance was super fun and at the end when all the seniors were in a big huddle singing ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ was precious,” Adam Gustas (12) said.

For many, banquet was the last time that they would be able to be with the majority of their graduating class. This brings mixed emotions from the class, but overall, it brings feelings of nostalgia.

“I’m not going to lie, I am glad that [banquet] will be one of the last experiences with my class. I love my friends, but I’m excited to get away,” Kaitlyn Seitz (12) said.
