When it comes to granting wishes, Shenango students definitely know how to plan. Throughout the years, the students of Peer Leadership have continuously managed to put on a different, entertaining show each and every February. In 2019, they’ve gone above and beyond and are planning an event that has never been done before. The Peer Leaders and advisors have decided to match the Shenango faculty against the Laurel faculty in order to have a Faculty Feud game night.
“We thought we would capitalize on the rivalry idea and have the staffs battle,” explained advisor Mrs. Kim Rudesill. Each team will consist of eight to ten members who will face off in team and individual challenges. The audience will never face a second of boredom as the teams will work to complete ten different games throughout the night.
Senior Delaney Zarone emphasized that “being a part of Make-A-Wish was by far the best thing I have ever done. When two schools come together to make a wish come true, it is truly magical.”
What Mrs. Rudesill is most excited about is “seeing the team members out of their comfort zones and having fun.” Although she will not be on a team, she of course thinks the Shenango Staff will come out on top! However, no matter who actually wins the night, the real winners will without a doubt be Hannah and Kosey, two local students who will hopefully receive wishes thanks to the efforts of not only Peer Leadership, but the entire community as well.
“Come out and support two local kids as we try to give them the night of their lives,” senior Paige Seitam, vice president of Peer Leadership, advised. “Plus you won’t want to miss seeing your teachers making fools out of themselves!”
Senior Joey Doughty added to Paige’s enthusiasm: “I just love how all of the hard work pays off when I get to see the happy look on everyone’s faces during and after the event.”
