2019 Mardi Gras
Congratulations (left to right) to Captain, Vincent Ramundo; Queen, Georgia Cheek;
Maid of Honor, Jill Tore; and King, Myles Bailey.
The Annual Mardi Gras Pageant and Ball, the most prestigious student event of the year at Archbishop McNicholas High School, honors 40 senior students who have given their time and talents in service to the school and community throughout their high school experience. During the evening ceremonies, a Mardi Gras King and Queen are crowned. The King and Queen are the highest vote getters amongst the senior class. The King, Queen and Court then preside over a formal dance open to all McNicholas students.
The Senior Court consists of the top 20 young men and top 20 young women who have actively participated in school events and organizations. Membership on the Court is a result of four years of compiled voting from students and faculty. The top four sophomore and junior young men and women constitute the honor guard.
The Captain of the Ball receives the second highest votes among young men in the senior class. The Maid of Honor receives the second highest votes among young women in the senior class. The announcement of the Captain of the Ball and Maid of Honor kicks off the Mardi Gras season at McNicholas. The Sisters of St. Joseph, who founded McNicholas High School, brought the Mardi Gras tradition to the school in 1952.
The 67th annual Mardi Gras took place on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2019 with the theme of Masquerade Ball. Mr. Frank Lowden was the emcee for the evening. Miranda Almer, daughter of Cheslea and Dan Almer, and Nolan Ey, son of Andy Ey, were pages.
