Laguna pledges worked hard preparing for this year’s Follies. With the help of a few actives, they were able to win SECOND PLACE this year! Follies is an eight minute production combining singing/acting/dancing put on by the 2013 pledge class. They compete against each tribe and club to win points that will go toward Homecoming weekend. This year’s Follies was STELLAR. The theme was Annie!
During rush, each tribe has the opportunity to put on a show for the upcoming rushees! It’s a time for Laguna to show the potential girls what this tribe is all about. We act, but most importantly, we DANCE! Dancing is one of our favorite things to do! Our theme this year was Saved By The Bell. Below are pictures from behind-the-scenes of this year’s 2013 Rush Skits!
General rush is one of the most exciting times of the year, not only for the new students, but for our actives as well! We have spent so much time preparing for the future baby mice and cannot wait to meet the future ladies of Laguna! Most of all, we want you girls to know that we already love you and have been praying for you. Our hope is that you will follow the Lord’s guidance as you make this decision, and never forget that Laguna has a place for everyone. Below are some pictures of our beautiful actives making some final preparations before the events kick into gear.
Each tribe pledge class has the honor of naming one guy to be their brother figure in the tribe, and the Ladies of Laguna are so excited to finally announce that Ty Bates has been named as our new Sophomore beau! Ty is a sophomore at Mc from Largo, Florida. He is also very involved with the college group at First Baptist Church Jackson and a future intramural superstar! We are all ecstatic to welcome him into our family and cannot wait to see how God uses Him as Laguna grows and develops this year!
Friday, March 23rd- Laguna’s spring informal took place at the beautiful Providence Hill farms, located in Clinton. Everyone had a great time, and it was the perfect start to a busy and fun-filled weekend! Thanks to our awesome Formal/Informal Chairs, Anja Evans and Ashley Dillard, for making sure it was the best Informal!
Derby Week 2013! The biggest week for tribes and clubs during the second semester of each school year- and this year, it was the Year of the Mouse! Derby Week started off with a Relay Race on Tuesday night. Even though we didn’t place, snaps to our awesome team of runners! These awesome girls included Elizabeth Coplon, Morgan Tynes, Serena Shah, Brianna Bates, Brianna Hill, Katelyn Nichols, and Laura-Kathryn Barker.
Wednesday was the canned food competition. Each tribe and club had to collect canned food, and then work together to build a sculpture with those cans. Thanks to each girl who worked on building the sculpture and making Walmart runs, Laguna placed second in the amount of cans brought, which also gained us points for Tribe of the Year! And snaps to Sydney Massengale, who finished up the sculpture!
Thursday night’s activity was SWERVE- the dance competition that The Council hosted. Laguna’s very own Council representative Hannah Livingston was the host of the night, and Laguna came out on top in the girls category and the overall competition, winning points for Tribe of the Year and money for our philanthropy, the Mustard Seed.
After dancing the night away at Informal Friday night, Laguna sported red, white, and blue all day Saturday. We worked hard at every competition, and it paid off! We won second place in the tailgate competition (thanks to our awesome spirit chairs Claire Fisher and Miriam Beard), and for the entire week, Laguna placed second overall and first in the tribe competition! Special thanks to Lindsey Tisdale for her awesome leadership during Derby Day, and to all of our girls who competed in each competition!
