Sunset, fun, awards ....

Farragut High School’s Class of 2022 received quite a send-off during “Senior Celebration Week.” 12th-Grade principal Cara Vaughn oversaw the activities, which officially kicked off Monday, May 9, with Senior Sunset, hosted by the Student Government Association, on Bill Clabo Field inside Eddie Courtney Stadium on campus. “Students played spike ball and other games, and watched the sunset,” said Vaughn, who noted it was the companion activity to the “Senior Sunrise” students enjoyed during the first weeks of senior year. Tuesday, May 10, a “Seniors vs. Staff” basketball game was front and center, with the staff pulling out a 45-39 upset over the senior class players. “The entire school was invited to attend and included a staff and student cheering section,” Vaughn said. “We had a hula hoop contest at halftime, and a performance from our ‘cheer squad.” Later that night, Senior Awards were presented, including scholarships and departmental awards.
