Centennial High School held its annual Senior Crab Feast on Wednesday, November 2, from 5pm-8pm. For many this marked the first official senior event of the year. Several groups of students continued the tradition of making Crab Feast t-shirts. Some included quotes like “Santa Claws,” “Take a Crack at it,” and “What’s Crabalackin?”

Ashley Waller, a senior, said, “I don’t really like crabs, but I thought there was good vibe, it reminded me of Homecoming.”

Crab Feast: First Senior Event of Many to Come

Words: Amanda Ali

Excitement filled the air once seniors walked through the halls and were hit with the wonderful aroma of crabs Thursday night. They were able to hang out with their friends and eat crabs as they got to experience their first official senior event at Centennial, the senior Crab Feast.

Seniors prepared days before this event by gathering groups and making classic shirts to fit with the theme of Crab Feast. They showcased their talent with puffy paint through their colorful and creative t-shirts and made sure to snap some pictures with their groups before the night was over. Some of these brilliant shirts included phrases such as “I want Crabulous,” “Where my old bae at?”We’re bringing Crabby back,” “Can you feel it now Mr. Krabs?” and “Seaniors.”

Once they entered the cafeteria, they were greeted by set-up tables and music to jam to and delicious food to eat before the main dish, CRABS. Seniors were also given the opportunity to do karaoke during the event, and many of them did not pass it up. From throwing it back to “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys to rapping vigorously to “Super Bass” by Nicki Minaj and pouring their singing skills out to “Diamonds” by Rihanna and choreographing a hilarious dance number, seniors clearly showed that they were having a great time.

Crab Feast was not only for seniors to enjoy crabs, but also for them to value the last year that they have together before they all go their separate ways after high school ends. Although this senior class still has the rest of the year, it feels as though it is going by way too fast. This event reminded them to cherish their last year of high school, and made them excited for what else is in store their senior year.

On Thursday, Oct. 17, Centennial seniors returned to the school from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for the annual crab feast, a night of eating crabs and socializing with classmates.

During the event, members of the junior class acted as waiters, bringing crabs out to all the tables. In addition to the crabs, other food such as macaroni and cheese and chicken wings were also served.

“I’m glad the class is all together,” said senior Jabari Mansell. “It’s a good opportunity to get to know everyone better.”

Assistant Principal Pamela West was one of the administrators that also attended the event, and she considered the night to be a success.  “They look like they’re having fun; like they’re hungry,” said West.

The senior crab feast took place from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on October 18, 2012 in the CHS cafeteria. Seniors were served hot crabs as they sat at tables that had been covered in preparation for the feast.

Besides crabs, seniors also had the option of eating other foods as they talked with their friends and enjoyed the music playing in the corner.

In addition to spending time with friends, part of the crab feast experience is making t-shirts beforehand to commemorate the experience, something almost every senior in attendance did.

“Making the t-shirts was the best part,” Melanie Zheng said.

However, some students’ shirts were decorated with slogans that had an innuendo that was considered too inappropriate for them to wear, and they were forced to turn their shirts inside out before they could join the feast.

“We had to turn our shirts inside out,” Amber Kang said when asked what was disappointing about the crab feast.

Despite the problem with some of the shirts, the night was considered a success by Joelle Miller, an assistant principal at CHS who was helping to man the ticket table.

“Look at all the kids! I love this stuff. This is fun, and we love to come,” Miller said.

According to Senior Sponsor Erin Fisher, over 200 Senior Passports were sold this year, along with around 170 tickets for the crab feast. Miller attributes the successful sales to both of the senior sponsors.

“Ms. Fisher and Ms. Harris, our sponsors, are amazing,” Miller said.
