Sweethearts Assembly: Money, Cakes and Royalty

Payson High School’s Future Farmers of America hosted the 2018 Sweethearts assembly on Feb. 16. The assembly thrilled students for the dance that took place the following Saturday. The student-packed auditorium got together to see the nominated contestants sell cakes and get crowned.

         Matthew Tervort, FFA vice-president, was the auctioneer for the day. Overall, $1540 were raised from all of the cakes, including three bought by the student council. Claire Rowley’s “Beauty and The Beast” themed cake was voted the best and sold for $350. In the end, Sweethearts royalty was crowned. Myranda Goodworth was second attendant, Cambrielle Fitzwater first attendant, and Claire Rowley was crowned as Sweethearts Queen. Rowley said, “It was fun, I got to try out new things and I’m just glad I did it.” Cakes, money and royalty: the assembly was a great way to end the week and prepare students for the upcoming dance.
