To say the class of 2012 represented at the annual Mr. and Ms. Overlake show this year would be an understatement. As I have written before, there isn’t an event that is more scary for a high school administrator than ad lib comedy. We have many discussions with kids ahead of time, but in the end, we trust them to exercise good judgment. This year, more than any other year, my hat is off to the class of 2012. They were absolutely amazing. In the end, it was Jimena Sanchez winning Ms. Overlake and Brian Sandstrom and Noah Mayer winning a duel title as Mr. Overlake, but the senior talent went way beyond those winners. With strong acts by Miles Mitchell, Jacob Gilles, Cody Kautz and Iyad Owen-Elia as well as McCall Hollie, Izzy Runge and Louise Chouinard, the event will be remembered as one of the best of all time. To top it off, the show was stage managed by Emily Rogers who was managing her first show. Congrats seniors.
Thank you to Bob Bristol for putting all the time and energy into creating the show, and to the kids and adults that make it happen.
