For the seniors, this was their last May crowning. As the school year comes to an end, everyone is busy with homework and studying for the upcoming finals but we need to remember our faith.
The May court is chosen by their fellow classmates. These are students that portray Mary in their everyday acts. They show the love, kindness, and courage of Mary.
Allison Vana was crowned May Queen. She shows her love and appreciation for Mary and all that she does. Mary is Allison’s role model and who she strives to be.
Allison’s speech is about how her mom portrays Mary. Her mom is a teacher and one of her students was sent to jail. Mrs. Vana was sad to know her student was in jail so she wrote him a letter asking to come see him. Several months had gone by before she recived a letter back saying he would like it if she came.
A group of seniors sing a beautiful song to Mary as a tradition. Everyone was in awe and deeply moved by the song.
Kate Tietjen and Jordan Fett were nominated as outstanding seniors. These students go above and beyond the expectations in the classroom and show excellent leadership providing a good example for all. The reveal of the outstanding seniors was different than years past because they didn’t say the names.
