Wilks Rogers ’19
On January 20 the winter semi-formal rounded out the third marking period and capped off the week. Students and dates filled the Barbee Center to participate in this annual event. Dinner started at 6:30 catered by Roadside Chive. Shortly after, Trademark made their sixth appearance at the Forest.
Highlights of the night were “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars, “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey, and “Shout” by the Isley Brothers. However the pinnacle of the night was Bennet Hudson’s and Thomas Rowland’s performance of “Play that Funky Music White Boy.” Bennett Hudson commented on his performance saying, “I was just trying to please the crowd.” Dancing was in full swing while one senior was held atop the crowd before being pulled down by faculty. Of course this amazing even as made possible by the incredible efforts of Tracey Stakem. We all owe Mrs. Stakem a thank you for her hard work to put together a great 2018 Semi-formal.
