Senior Prank: Mariachi band hired to follow Bailey

Students and faculty were treated to the sweet sounds of mariachi music during second period on May 28. The Class of 2013’s senior prank was hiring the band to follow Lou Bailey, principal, around the school for a couple hours.

The project was organized by Courtney Brearley and Andie Tenoso, seniors, who asked other seniors on Facebook to chip in money to hire the band for $450. Mike Francis, student resource officer, was told of the plans and he approved the band’s presence in the building for the time.

“We knew this was something Lou could handle,” Brearley said. “He’s the kind of principal who would love this sort of thing.”

“Pretty hilarious,” Bailey said in reaction to the event. “Pretty… hilarious.”
