Leadership Hosts Holiday Feast

The leadership class put together a Thanksgiving feast on November 17 for all of its student officers.

“It’s just another bonding activity for leadership. It’s super fun,” said sophomore Hillary Weaver. “And it’s a tradition.”

The feast was held on the Thursday before Thanksgiving break because leadership attended a field trip to Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School on Friday, November 18.

The class spent most of Wednesday, November 16, debating chicken versus turkey for their feast, a very sensitive topic to many of leadership’s students.

Seniors Wayne Hawkins and Hayden Hunt brought a chicken to the feast, much to everyone’s dismay.

“Chicken is not a Thanksgiving food. Turkey is a Thanksgiving food. That’s all I have to say,” said freshman Luke VandenBerghe.

“I think it’s wrong to disgrace a revered tradition that has been in place for hundreds of years. They tried replacing the turkey with a chicken and frankly, it’s outrageous. Absolutely outrageous. If we were able to, we would subject [Hawkins and Hunt] to some harsh punishments,” said junior Derek He, who ended up changing his preferences halfway through the feast.

Eventually, turkey was also served at the event.
