A Cajun Celebration!

“Take me out to the ball game, take me out to with the crowd!”

Today we surprised the delegation with a song competition! Here are the winners!

First Place: Scoreboards
Second Place:  Pop Flies
Third Place: Catchers Mits


We’re resting up and enjoying a little break at the dorm now as we prepare for a very special night! Tonight, delegates will have a taste of Louisiana at our Cajun Cookout in the Ballroom. Then our annual Five-Year Night ceremony will begin. Ten of our staff members will be recognized for their commitment and passion to LYS over the past five years.

Once a former delegate is invited to join LYS staff they are asked to make a five-year commitment to the program, and each year at seminar we honor those staff members who have completed their five-year pledge. At this year’s Five-Year Night Ceremony, LYS honors and congratulates Gracie Reaux, Zach Barnett, Will Barnett, Madeline Bordelon, Conner Bueche, Caroline Grand, Glynn Gross, and Lawrence Williams, Luke Immel, and Will Syll. We are so proud of you!

The entire week you’ve seen Staff in red shirts but tonight, each of the Five-Years will receive a special light blue shirt signifying their achievement. They are given a chance to address their friends and families, current and former staff members, and the delegates, and join the rest of the alumni on stage. Pictures from tonight’s ceremony will be in the next post!

Thanks again to these dedicated staff members for everything and CONGRATULATIONS!! HAPPY 5 YEAR!
