Today, the Ensworth tradition of electing Orange and Black Captains took place during the Red Gables assembly. Each of the potential captains was nominated by their classmates and gave a speech at the assembly. After the assembly, the 4th through 8th grade students voted on who would represent them this year. This long-standing tradition is something the students look forward to each year. As captain of their team, they are expected to encourage, lead, and motivate their fellow team members in academic, spirit, and athletic challenges throughout the school year. The winning captains will be announced at the end of the school day today.
The nominees this year are from left to right:
Black: Ben Wallace, Frist Allen, Sterling Akers, Elizabeth Freeland, and Julia Nahley
Orange: Anne Grace Cox, Claire Cato, Thomas Estes, Galen Elcan
