WLHS celebrates 94th annual May Day by crowning Queen, King

West Linn High School celebrated the 94th annual May Day festivities held on Friday, May 3, by the crowning of Sophie Bangs and Connor Cushman, seniors, as May Day Queen and King. Bangs and Cushman were crowned in the first few minutes of an action-packed assembly that showcased the varied talent at WLHS, such as singing, dancing and musical theatre.

Bangs and Cushman were crowned after winning the popular vote from a school-wide election between the ten senior couples on the May Court. The 2013 May Court princesses were Bangs, Mary Earp, Dominique Evans, Sarah Gibson, Elisabeth Haffner, Leah Henningsen, Paige Myers, Emmalee Scheid, Abigail Tudorache, and Lauren Wilkinson. The May Court princes were Cushman, Drew Cribbs, Drew Crowther, Alec Gans, Brett Kruger, Joel Larson, Cameron Minson, K’myn Pettitt-Delia, Adam Roethe, and Brad Stone.

The May Day assemblies were hosted by Melissa Cozi and Kaelyn Rushforth, seniors, who kept the assembly moving during the two and a half hour show.

In the first of two assemblies, the talent that students showcased was focused mostly on the singing talents of the guys’ and girls’ sextets, musical theatre performances from Jacob Arrigotti, junior, and Jennie Warmack, senior, and a performance by princesses Wilkinson and Scheid. The assembly featured a dance rendition of the final scene in the hit movie “Pitch Perfect” from a group of senior girls who lip synced and danced to a medley of popular songs.

About the Contributor
Kara Ghorbani-Elizeh, The People Editor
Community service is a way that Kara Ghorbani-Elizeh, senior, gives back. Helping people has always been an important aspect of Ghorbani-Elizeh’s life because she has always been aware of how lucky she is to live a privileged life. Ghorbani-Elizeh considers it selfish when people have a chance to help someone and they don't. “Whenever a person in my group of friends needs help, I am the go-to person,” Ghorbani-Elizeh said. She would love to continue helping people throughout her life and is considering becoming a psychiatrist when she grows up. “I first became interested in psychology when I took it as a class my sophomore year of high school,” Ghorbani-Elizeh said. “I loved it because I think it is really cool how there are reasons for a person’s behavior and how scientists can figure out how the brain works.” Although helping people is a big part in Ghorbani-Elizeh’s life, she also loves to travel and took a three week trip to Italy and Greece this summer. “It was the most amazing trip of my whole life, the food was delicious and the beaches were beautiful. You could see straight down into the ocean,” Ghorbani-Elizeh said. Ghorbani-Elizeh has always been aware of other people’s needs and wants. She is the first person her friends go to in times of need and in her free time, you will see her volunteering for her community. She is truly devoted to helping people, and wants to make her life career about assisting other people in their problems.
