Exactly what happens at a Senior Banquet?
The Masters of Ceremonies will be two talented Seniors who typically poke fun at all things D'Evelyn - and some things not. Senior speeches are always entertaining - some thought provoking, some hilarious, some tearjerkers, others somber, all memorable. Seniors will entertain the audience with musical and/or vocal performances, some of them originals, perhaps a solo, but all of them done with the same precision and expertise that D'Evelyn Seniors are known for throughout Jefferson County. Scholarships and monetary awards will also be presented.
All scholarship and award recipients are met with applause from the audience as deserving students, D'Evelyn community members, and the Senior High Teacher of the Year, voted upon by Seniors only, are recognized by all in attendance. And finally, an ongoing tradition that marks the end of the evening and a trademark of D'Evelyn Senior Banquets for as long as anyone can remember - the Senior Video.
Their Liberal Arts education has prepared them for whatever path they choose for themselves. If you are a parent of a senior student, by all means try your best to attend the Senior Banquet with your graduating student. In fact, consider this annual event a must, from someone who knows and looks forward to many more in the future! Go Jags!
