The Junior Recognition Ceremony and The Junior Ring Banquet took place on May 20, 2022. The Junior Recognition Ceremony was in the auditorium after the May Crowning. Each junior was called up to the stage and received their ring and activity pins from Brother Kenneth.
The Junior Ring Banquet started at 7:30 P.M. and everyone gathered in the cafeteria for dinner. While eating dinner, students mingled and took pictures in front of a photo wall with their fellow students and teachers. Once dinner was over, everyone moved into the girls gym. The theme for this year’s Ring Banquet was “Around the World.” The gym was decorated with flags and monuments from different countries. Students spent all night dancing and hanging out with their friends. Sadly, at 10:00 P.M. The Ring Banquet had to come to an end.
Micaela Maywald said, “I really enjoyed when they played Piano Man by Billy Joel and Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band.”
Lianne Chu said, “This was an amazing time to bond with my classmates and friends, and is one of my favorite memories.”
