Despite it being the winter season, the class of 2015 was able to enjoy this year’s Winter Ball free of freezing weather. “It wasn’t even that cold,” senior Jabarri Watson said. Both the ladies and guys of the senior class took some time out to dress up and prepare for the evening. It was evident in the marvelous gowns and in the fancy suits. Numbers of the ladies had spent a large amount of the entire day preparing forthe event. “It took all day [to get ready],” senior Shelby Talton said. The hair, makeup, and outfits altogether created a huge show for everyone to see. From dazzling and sparkling shoes to colorful gowns of purples and reds, all of the ladies of the winter ball looked spectacular. Different styles from each person came out nicely. Working all day just for the evening definitely seemed worth it for the ladies. The venue for winter ball was the same place as where prom 2014 was held. Many seniors of 2015 enjoyed the Aristide Event Center as well. “I liked the place,” Coliea Crawford, senior, said. “It was so beautiful.” All aspects of the night were absolutely pleasant, from the outstanding visuals of the place, to the food and dining. Even the music was enjoyable. Mr. Maison was the infamous DJ for the night. “The music was great because Maison mixed it up to where it was a lot of old school for us 90s babies,” senior Leah McClellan said. “And then there was new school mixed in with that but not just that popular or bandwagon type music.” The night ended around midnight, and although students enjoyed the food served at Aristide, they went out to eat and enjoy the rest of the evening. Students visited any restaurant open late at night: places ranging from Whataburger to Waffle House. “Even though the food was real good, we still went to the waffle house and just [enjoyed the night],” senior Imani Crosby said. The night was great for each student. From the music by DJ Calculus, to the different outfits put together by the students, to the incredible food given by AristideEvent Center, everything about Winter Ball 2015 was astounding. “I enjoyed it,” senior Julian Topic said. “I really enjoyed the night.”
