Seniors choose best of the best

Max Girard and Emily Dubec-Hunter were voted as having the Best Personalities in the annual the senior superlatives which were announced by the Senior Class last week after a nomination and voting process held during home rooms.

“I was anticipating the results for Best Friends,” Timmy Nguyen said. “The outcome was what I wanted, the Thug Sqauad [sic] was nominated.”

The “Thug Sqauad”  consists of approximately 20 seniors who have grown close during their time at school. The group adopted its name during the bus ride to the UCF field trip in September. “We were listening to music and having fun and were trying to get people to continue partying with us when we got home. Chris Melchiori made the group on Facebook but spelled ‘squad’ wrong, and it stuck.”

Nguyen said he was pleased with the results, and Shivani Laloo, who attends Eastern Florida State College full time as an early admissions student, concurred even though he didn’t vote.

“There are many of us that are fully enrolled at EFSC and didn’t get a chance vote,” Laloo said.  “However, I think my classmates did an excellent job at voting for superlatives. I couldn’t help but laugh at how accurate this list was.”
