Energy was high on Tuesday as ASB put on their second pep rally of the year to recognize the rivalry basketball games against the Santa Monica Vikings that night, and celebrate the other winter sports.
This pep rally was anything but ordinary. Strategically tacked onto the back end of Wish Week, ASB members conducted a “miracle minute” during both assembly periods to collect spare change for donations to the Make-a-Wish Foundation from anyone and everyone in the stands who had it.
Complete with performances from cheer, band and Madrigals, announcements from the winter sports captains and a half court shot competition, ASB members noticed that the audiences in both assemblies were much more engaged than they were at the fall pep rally, ASB representative sophomore Kevin Manavi said.
“Honestly, the biggest part of this is just the gratitude I get from planning something that’s so extraordinary and providing something that many people have provided for them,” he said. “The fact that I get to go around and sell shirts and food, the talent show and all these events that are going toward the Make-A-Wish Foundation just makes me feel really good, like a kind hearted person.”
