Being royalty at a high school dance is an experience that very few people get to have. Back in 2018, when math teacher Rachel Pirrone went to North, she was one of the few students who had the opportunity to be a part of that year’s Snowcoming court. After Pirrone returned to North as a teacher, she decided to become a STUCO sponsor alongside Rowan Pugh. By taking this position, Pirrone is now responsible for running all of the courts at school dances.

“I think it’s super fun to help run these types of things in STUCO so I can help our students have good experiences in high school,” Pirrone said. “When I was on court I was definitely shocked but extremely grateful and I enjoy watching some students at North getting to have that experience as well.”

Pirrone and Pugh help coach those on court feel more comfortable prior to their big day by walking them step by step through the process they will be going through.

Senior Torie Montgomery was one of the homecoming queen finalists this year and had the opportunity to walk on the field during the homecoming football game this year. Montgomery credits Pirrone’s guidance as one of the biggest factors that made her feel more comfortable.

“I felt more comfortable this year because we were walked through the motions on what we would do and that didn’t happen when I was on court my sophomore year so I definitely felt more prepared,” Montgomery said.

Pirrone loved her time in high school so much that in 2021 she returned to North as a math teacher. Pirrone wants to help students have the same experiences that she was able to have back when she was in high school.

“I had a lot of people in my corner when I won and it makes me happy to help students who were like me make life long memories,” Pirrone said.
