The annual Junior/Senior Banquet is one of Toccoa Falls College’s most treasured and anticipated events. It is the last big get together for the graduating class, and the initiation of the juniors into their new place of seniority. It is always a pleasure to attend these events, but the stage has been set this year for, what could be, the most wonderfully intense Jr./Sr. banquet TFC has ever put together. Let me explain.
This past Saturday’s Classapalooza was a dazzling display of random athleticism, dumb luck, and unlikely upsets, but the final scoreboard revealed a troubling problem. The junior class and senior class ended the day in an unprecedented TIE. Yes, a tie. Now we all know that if buck-buck had been counted in the final tally the senior class no doubt would have taken the cake, but that was not the case (no bitterness about it). The juniors started the day strong with a huge win in beach volleyball, but the seniors rallied late to win both super slider kick ball, and dizzy soccer. It was an amazing day, but the important question remains. What will the tie breaker be?
Here are the facts. On May 5th at 7:00pm the gates will open and the event of the year will begin. It is taking place at Larkins Sawmill in Greenville, South Carolina. There is no better place than a sawmill to decide the fate of Classapalooza 2017. The clock is ticking down for the day that could revolutionize the Junior/Senior Banquet experience for years to come. I am not sure that anything like this has ever happened before, or that anything like this will ever happen again. This is a cannot miss event.
Several SGA members have been communicating what this tie breaker will look like. The Student Government has done an incredible job for putting on amazing events this school year, and I am sure that they could not have imagined that something like this would happen. They have shown tremendous leadership, creativity, and thoughtfulness while serving our student body and I am genuinely grateful for that. Thank you SGA!
Remember: This event is a formal event, and is designed for community and fellowship. While there may be some type of misplaced pride at stake, this is a time to enjoy the company of fellow classmates. Jr./Sr. is important for the student body to appreciate the hard work of graduating Seniors, and acknowledge the future success of aspiring Juniors. Do not let the heart of competition (whatever that looks like) ruin the beauty of the Jr./Sr. experience. With that being said, show up ready for amazing food, fellowship, and (more than likely) dancing. Study hard over the next few days and then come celebrate the end of another wonderful year! Cannot wait to see you there!
