This past Saturday night, Campion Academy had its annual auction and talent show benefiting the senior class. The night started off with the seniors selling concessions and a blind auction. There were ten acts split by an intermission when an auction benefiting the senior class was held. The acts included everything from breathtaking piano playing and skillful violin stunts to mind-boggling magic tricks and audience-interactive comedy.
The first-place act was by Pastor Michael Goetz and was an Egyptian-themed tomb exploration with random Campion Academy students picked to take part. Fabiola, a junior picked by the random drawing, reflected, “I was terrified because I thought that random people were going to push me over or something like that. When he made me touch the ‘eyeball’ I was terrified because I didn’t realize it was just jello.”
The seniors made a lot of money from concessions and the blind auction. Senior Christian Carr explained, “I was working most of the time as the cashier with Maritza, 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, stated, “I thought that the blind auction was pretty cool. The only thing that I might change was a limit on the amount of times people can write their names and a list of ingredients in the different items up for auction.”
