“This year’s theme is new, fun, and it has a relation to our community… Everybody enjoys Fiesta!” says Katie Franco, senior organizer and President of the Student Council.
How To Ask?
With much creative leeway, Charlie Sullivan, senior, was among the first people to request a date.
“The night before, at like, 10:30 p.m. at YoungLife, I was being pressured by my friends to ask somebody! So I thought… I’ll ask Alexis (Doerr, senior Brahmadora)! I was excited so I went to H-E-B and bought posters to write “H-O-M-E-C-O-M-I-N-G-?” on. We have class together in the D-wing 3rd floor overlooking the band field, so I called a bunch of my friends and we got together to spell it out! When she saw, she actually thought it was for someone else!” Sullivan said.
