On Thursday, April 11, Mother Nature decided to remind us that
she is in control, dropping another twelve to fifteen inches of snow on the
area. Schools closed for another two days due to the snow and winds that blew
for the two days. On Friday afternoon
many people started clearing away the snow which was wet and heavy and muddied
yards even more.
Early on Saturday, April 13, several Sargent Central
Students made their way to Hankinson for the Regional Music Contest for vocal
and instrumental. The Regional Contest was moved from Thursday, April 11, in
Wahpeton to Saturday in Hankinson due to Mother Nature’s interference. Despite
the delay all the youth attending from Sargent Central, North Sargent, Milnor,
Hankinson and Lidgerwood provided a wonderful display of talent to the judges. Sargent
Central had fifteen total starring – seven choir and eight band. The Sargent
Central students who starred and will go to the State Contest will perform at
the State Bound Fine Arts Concert on Monday, April 29th, at 7:00
p.m. at the Sargent Central Activity Center. Seats can be reserved for $5.00 in
advance (includes a dessert and beverage) by contacting Kaia Mahrer at Sargent
Central High School, 724-3205. Bleacher seating is available at no charge.
Funds raised go to the High School Music Department. Reservation deadline is
Friday, April 26th.
Milnor and Sargent Central High Schools held a combined Prom
this year on the evening of Saturday, April 13. “The Golden Gala” was held at
Milnor High School and 34 finely-dressed young couples participated in the
Grand March. The school auditorium was filled with family and friends cheering
on the students and taking a myriad of photographs. Once the crowd left, the
Prom was held followed by the Post Prom celebration that started at midnight
and ended around 4 a.m. Sunday morning. Needless to say, there were many teens
with sleep deprivation moving slowly, if at all, on Sunday.
