This morning Red Gables students were treated to a long honored Ensworth tradition, Orange and Black Captain speeches. At the assembly, the candidates each gave a brief speech about what Black and Orange competition means to them and why he or she believes they would be a good captain. After the speeches, the Pre-First through Third Graders were dismissed while the Fourth through Eighth Graders divided themselves according to their team colors and voted on their favorite candidates.
The candidates for Orange and Black Captains for the 2011-2012 school year are: Cate Elcan and Isabella Johnston (girl candidates for Orange Captain), Caroline Morgan and Isabel Reeve (girl candidates for Black Captain), Charlie Clifton and Wylie Lowe (boy candidates for Orange Captain), and Sam Hughston McClellan and Jack Zager (boy candidates for Black Captain).
Announcement of the winners will be made at afternoon hook-up. Stay tuned on Twitter for the winners!
