Remarkable Performances Highlight Senior Class Benefit »
Campion Academy's annual auction and talent show, benefitting the senior class, featured ten acts split by an intermission that included everything from a breathtaking piano piece and skillful violin stunts to mind-boggling
magic tricks and audience-interactive comedy.
The first--place act by Pastor Michael Goetz featured an Egyptian-themed tomb exploration using randomly-chosen Campion students as part of the act. "I was terrified," said Fabiola, a junior, "because I thought random people were going to push me over or something. When he made me touch the "eyeball," I was [again] terrified because I didn't realize it was just jelly."
Seniors made out financially from the concessions as well as the blind auction. One senior, Christian Carr, explained, "I was working most of the time as cashier, making sure people got the right amount of money back while answering questions they had."
Cade Lukens, who bought pumpkin bread at the blind auction, said, "I thought the blind auction was pretty cool. The only thing I might change was a limit on the amount of times people can write their names [for the blind auction] and [provide] a list of ingredients for the different items up for auction."
