Winter Formal recap


With the introduction of the Winter Formal, more than 300 students found themselves in an environment built for a good time.

The Winter Formal was far from just thrown together. Student Council spent hours making it the perfect night for attendees. 

“It took us about 4-5 hours to fully set it up. It was more work than we expected and wasn’t easy by any means, but you could definitely tell it was worth it by how much fun the students had,” senior Sheldon Carroll-Clark said.

Some students were caught by surprise by how fun the event was.

“I went in expecting it to not be that fun, but I was pleasantly surprised. There was a lot of energy and excitement, and it was one of those things where it would be hard not to have fun. I had a lot of fun with my friends,” junior Amare Middleton said.

Sophomore Will Riley faced an interesting situation at the formal.

“While everyone else danced, I was sitting with my girlfriend who had just recently tore her ACL in a basketball game. For some people, that could have killed the fun, but I had a good time despite the unfortunate situation,” Riley said.

The Student Council did not have a hard time deciding what to keep and what to let go of for next year’s formal.

“Even with it being the first time we had a Winter formal, It wasn’t hard to know what should stay next year and what we might get rid of. Everyone loved the DJ and emcee, but we could definitely have some more food and drink options next year,” sophomore Avah Wallischeck said.

Senior Student Council members know it is unfortunate that they only got to coordinate one Winter Formal, but they know it is in good hands.

“It sucks that I only got to do this once, but I think it will be in good hands. The underclass members all did a really good job setting up, and I have no doubt it will be just as much of a success next year,” Clark said.
