Every year there is quite the hubbub about the annual voting for yearbook senior superlatives. This year the voting scenario was quite different. Yearbook Advisor and Library Media Specialist Shannon Robinson had us vote online instead of on paper ballots during our advisory period. Senior Charlotte Limosani shared her views about the new voting system. “I think students should have voted ahead of time for the nominees, and in regards to the online system, I think that we should have voted on paper to avoid the technological problems that students ran into.” Some students had difficultly accessing the website from their phones.
The nominees this year for each superlative were chosen by Mrs. Robinson and a few students from the senior class who are involved with the yearbook. When voting, seniors were able to also nominate anyone of their choice. Kelsey Donaldson was not on the original list of nominees for Best Dressed, but ended up winning due to people individually including her and voting for her.
The superlatives chosen by the yearbook staff for this year were Best Dressed, Most Artistic, Best Hair, Class Clown, Most Likely to Change the World, Most Likely to be a Millionaire, Best Chef, Most Outdoorsy, Most Athletic, Most Talented, and Best Friends.
The results were
Best Dressed: Kelsey Donaldson and Brian Gendron
Most Artistic: Ben Jackson and Tasha Walker
Best Hair: Leah Campano and Connor McGuill
Class Clown: Gabi Donofrio and Chris Taylor
Most Likely to Change the World: Bailey Shea and Chase Lemay
Most Likely to be a Millionaire: Alaina Hartnett and Mitch Nedderman
Best Chef: Amanda Auger and Shawn Topping
Most Outdoorsy: Dan Ayotte and Abby Andrews
Most Athletic: Jen Dawson and Jake Ward
Best Friends: Lyssa Hurlburt and Kait Anderson
Biggest Flirt: Natalie Jones and Greg Lee
Most Talented: Celia Lacross and Charlie Bencivengo
Kait Anderson who was elected Best Friends with Lyssa Hurlburt shared, “It was really cool to be nominated and to be able to have that memory with Lyssa.” Gabi Donofrio laughed as I asked her about being elected for Class Clown. “I’m glad people seem to appreciate my sarcastic sense of humor,” she said.
Not only did students get elected for attributes pertaining to their personalities such as Class Clown and Best Hair but for their talents as well. Amanda Auger and Shawn Topping were able to represent their stellar cooking abilities, while Ben Jackson and I were recognized for our artistic talent. “It feels good to receive recognition for my art,” said Ben. Senior Superlatives definitely give individuals a time to shine.
