Student Council Ends Year With Crawfish Boil

From Issue 7

Crawfish MRThis year the student council sponsored the annual Crawfish Boil at the Jackson Prep baseball fields.  It was held during the Prep vs Lamar baseball games on Tuesday, April 26th. Brooke Womack, this year’s student body president was extremely pleased with the turnout of the crawfish boil and said, “The crawfish boil was so much fun because everyone came out for the game and the crawfish was so good”.

There are many tables set up around the field behind the batting cages where people can gather around to hang out and eat. There was a surplus amount of crawfish, corn, and potatoes for everyone to enjoy.  The turnout this year was great, as usual and included many students from each grade.  The weather for that day was in our favor; it was sunny and warm outside.

The baseball team played two games against Lamar at 5 and 7 o’clock. In between the games That night was also senior night where the two baseball seniors were honored, Worth Eskrigge and Cole Swayze. The team came out with two wins both games having the ending score of 10-0.  After the first game, the baseball players got to come and join the student body in eating some crawfish before they had to go play their second game.  The opposing team, Lamar, was also invited to join the Patriots in the feast.

The crawfish was prepared by Bill Delaney who has been doing this with the Student Council for many years now.  He is a Prep dad and has had several kids go through the school.  The Student Council puts this on as an end of the year celebration and thanks to all those who have supported them throughout the year.

This years student council has put on many events throughtout the year including Homecoming, Prom and Cafeteria Appreciation Week.  This will be Coach Saxon’s last year at Prep.  Mrs. Hepner will take over his job as being the sponsor of Student Council.

There were 600 pounds of crawfish ordered and by the end of it all of it had gotten eaten. Everyone had such a great time, and all are looking forward to it next year.
