"The Kings and Queens of 2013:" Senior Day 2012Tuesday, May 08, 2012 By Ayla Oden
The class of 2012 made their way across the stage at graduation to receive their diplomas on Saturday, May 5 th . However, on May 7 th , the attention was entirely on the class of 2013, now known as the Seniors. Northshore High School’s tradition of Senior Day has been a memorable occasion for NHS alumni in recent years. The juniors were excited to make their first debut as the “Kings and Queens of 2013” after the previous seniors graduated. To prepare, NHS juniors tested their craftiness by decorating their iconic crowns, which they wore on the big day. Also, cars were decorated with paw-prints and crowns for the Senior Day parade. Early in the morning, 6:30 a.m., the new seniors met in the Mizer’s parking lot to line up. Then, they were escorted by the Slidell police all the way to the campus, where they celebrated their superior status. Donuts and juice galore were handed out by volunteering parents as the seniors met to take pictures and celebrate with friends. To really stick it to the underclassmen, though, the entire Class of 2013 paraded down the familiar hallways all the way to the pit to show off their supremacy as the oldest class at NHS. Re-elected class president Meara McNitt said, “It was a fun event to really show everyone how good of a time we can have if we all come together.” Class sponsors Mrs. Weems and Mrs. Horn were responsible for organizing the event and helping to make it a success. “Senior day was extremely successful. All of the students were excited, and we owe it all to the wonderful parental support of the class of 2013,” Mrs. Weems told The Prowler. On a side note to future seniors, be safe and drive carefully during the Senior Day parade to prevent any accidents. Senior year for the Class of 2013 really got off to a great start, but the best days are yet to come!
