With the end of the school year in sight, seniors are trying to finish the checklist of their high school careers. Different students will have varying goals to complete, but the milestones of prom, class trip, and graduation are staples on the high school bucket list.
Fortunately, seniors don’t have to cross these items off on their own. The Senior Class Executive Council is tasked with the duty of making the last few months of the year memorable, which includes include organizing prom, planning a class trip, and raising the overall enthusiasm of the graduating class.
Prom will be the first event crossed out on the list. With the theme of A Night Under the Sea, the Executive Council was able to have a relatively inexpensive dance where tickets were only $40. But, they did not cut any corners on the venue and decorations. This year’s prom will be held at the elegant Country Club of York.

Jessica Sun has been named Grand Champion at the York County Science and Engineering Fair.
The senior won the title on Mar. 8 after claiming the top prize at Red Lion’s own science fair and two days of judging at the county level.
“I was both happy and surprised when I found out I was Grand Champion,” she said. “It was not a goal that I set out with. Mainly, I just wanted to research something I was interested in and do a good project.”
The title will send Sun to the compete in the International Science and Engineering Fair, which is being held in Los Angeles this coming May.
“I’m both nervous and excited for the fair,” she said. “I still have a little bit of work to do with my project before I go, but I’m really excited since the international fair is going to be in Los Angeles. I think that it will be a really cool experience.”
