Trivia Night success for math club

Trivia Night was held on May 3 in the Commons with approximately 160 people in attendance. The event was sponsored by Mu Alpha Theta, which used the money raised for scholarships and funding.

“With these fund raisers, I think that [Mu Alpha Theta] is helping the students within the community go towards a better education and future,” senior and club member Sara Cantrell said.

Each table consisted of eight players who all worked together to answer the questions. There were ten rounds where tables answered questions in categories ranging from “Movie Quotes” to “Alphabet Soup.”

The winning team was a table consisting of all teachers that ironically named themselves ‘The Misfits.’ The team who received the most total points was awarded a refund for the $100 entry fee and $100 worth of Pizza Street gift cards.

Throughout the night Mu Alpha Theta ran raffles and gave away baskets full of prizes. There were also silent auctions held throughout the night as well.

“The night was really hectic, but we made a lot of money, so we’ll be able make multiple scholarships,” senior and Mu Alpha Theta secretary Danielle Denure said.

Clubs got involved by getting tables and donating baskets that went along with the theme of their club. The faculty also got involved with helping make the event happen by providing basket ideas, and thinking of ways to help run the event smoothly.

“I helped come up with some categories and questions that would be both fun and interesting to figure out,” math teacher Steven Willott said.

At the end of the night, club members gave sponsor, Shalaunda Spencer, a crystal candle holder as a goodbye present because of her retirement at the end of the year.

“It was very touching, but very sad, because with Mrs. Spencer leaving it won’t be same,” Denure said.
