TRADITION LIVES ON BY REGINA FORD GVNEWS.COM

Grad Night looks to be bigger and better than ever this year as organizers rally to make it a reality after the popular high school tradition nearly folded earlier this spring. The Sahuarita Unified School District Educational Enrichment Foundation saved the day by backing the Grad Night Committee and taking sponsorship of the popular event. Grad Night begins immediately following graduation on May 24. The all-night party was started more than 20 years ago to keep kids safe after commencement. The only requirement for entry is the kids have to stay all night. If they leave, a parent or guardian is contacted.

REGINA FORD | SAHUARITA SUN

Santa Cruz Valley Car Nut members Andy and Lila Szedlus stand near a 1997 Chrysler Concord donated to the Sahuarita High School Grad Night committee. The car will be presented to a lucky senior at the conclusion of the all-night grad party following the Sahuarita High School graduation.

Activities planned for Grad Night include a photo booth, a caricature artist, a giant hamster ball, Laser Tag, board games, boxer bingo, giant Twister, three-on-three basketball, volleyball, dodge ball and more. There will be no shortage of food either. The Optimists Club will be serving up their famous sausages, plus hotdogs and brats. There will be pizza and ice cream as well as soft drinks, chips and other snacks.

And it’s free to graduating seniors. Juniors will be charged a $5 entrance fee, but the money is collected and will be used to help pay for their Grad Night party the following year. Several hundred graduates partied until dawn at last year’s grad night, and those who stayed on till morning had their names entered in a drawing for a car donated by the Santa Cruz Valley Car Nuts. This year’s prize is a 1997 Chrysler Concord.

senior snapshot BY SYDNEY HALIBURTON

makenzie carolan The highlight of my senior year was making new friends and sharing memories that will last a lifetime. I am going to attend Pima Community College for two years and complete my general education courses, afterward I am going to apply to a university. In five years, I see myself furthering my career by teaching English classes and expanding my creative writing abilities and implementing them in the real world.

Kalleanah Lexa Smith Our beautiful Kalleanah how quickly the years have gone by. It seems just like yesterday the Lord blessed us with you. We are so proud and honored to have you in our lives. You are so amazingly beautiful, strong willed and talented always remember that. You are such an inspiration to us all. Remember to always put our Lord Jesus first and you will forever be blessed. Congratulations our Kalle Bird!! We Love You and may God Bless you always. Dad, Mom, Ryan, Kash, Tata, Grandma, Nana and Uncle Mikey

The highlights of my senior year were going to every football game, home and away, and standing down on the sidelines to take pictures of the team, also playing varsity tennis and making lifetime on Weight Watchers! I plan to go to the University of Arizona as a nutritional sciences major. In five years, I see myself as a Registered Dietitian going to California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, Calif., for graduate school.

My favorite moments of my senior year were being part of the football team (as the kicker), scoring extra points, and sharing the experience of winning games with my team. I would also have to say that track season and going to Skills USA (a state competition in Phoenix in which he placed in construction) were great moments, too. I plan on going to Pima Community College for two years and then to a university where I can major in construction. In five years I see myself living in Tucson with a wellpaying job that I enjoy doing and living comfortably.

Robert’s favorite memory from high school was playing in his first varsity football game. He will be attending South Western College in Winfield, Kan. He will be studying athletic training. In five years, Robert sees himself training at the college level and/or being a personal trainer.

BY SYDNEY HALIBURTON

kevin luckketta The highlight of my senior year was moving and changing schools for the year. Most kids would not change schools and leave all their friends behind for their senior year, but for me it was a new adventure and a learning process. I’ve grown so much and made so many new friends because of the decision of spending my senior year at Sahuarita High School. My plans after high school are to attend Pima West to become an interpreter, and then after that I want to transfer to the UofA to become a drama teacher. In five years I’d like to see myself being an interpreter and hopefully I’ll be done with school so that I can teach high school students ASL and drama.

s

marissa mitchell My favorite part of senior year was probably being in Spirit Club, making posters and shirts for the football players, and showing how much spirit the class of 2012 has at the games! In the fall, I will be starting college at Northern Arizona University. I will be studying hotel and restaurant management. In five years I see myself working for guest services on a cruise ship.

this year in sport s ... Sahuarita’s Pancho Mariscal (3) is mobbed at home plate after a home run during the Mustangs’ eight-game win streak to reach the playoffs.

The Sahuarita Mustangs sports programs produced several 2011-12 highlights. The Mustangs’ football team rebounded from an 0-10 campaign in 2010 to finish the year at 7-3, barely missing the playoffs in head coach David Rodriguez’s first season at the helm. The baseball team won 11 of their last 12 games and eight in a row to close out the season and just qualify for the playoffs as the No. 23 seed in Division II. It finished the year 22-6 overall and 14-4 in the section. The softball team rebounded late in a rebuilding year after winning the

Both the boys’ and girls’ tennis teams got into the state tournament with identical 11-3 records, falling to respective No. 1 seeds, Ironwood Ridge and Notre Dame Prep in the first round of the tournament. Coach Joe Prince’s track team also had a banner year, overcoming the loss of key seniors to field two top girls’ relay teams. The girls’ 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 teams both finished second in the Division II state meet.
