GPS Announces May Day Court

Monday, January 14, 2013

Senior Tiana Mills, a GPS Ambassador, athlete, and community volunteer, was elected Friday to reign over the 2012-13 May Day festivities. The senior class voted earlier in the week for the six members of the court who were introduced at assembly: Sarah Cobble, Becky Gardner, Monica Justo, Hannah McKamey, Mills, and Lillie Noles.  

After the announcement, Headmaster Randy Tucker escorted Ms. Mills around the theatre to the cheers of students, especially from her classmates.

Members of the court are representative in the “highest sense” of the ideals of the school, and they are chosen in part because of the positive contributions they make in all areas of school life. The court includes academic and athletic stars, club leaders and publications’ editors, thespians and dedicated community service volunteers.  

A school-wide vote by the entire student body chose the queen and Maid of Honor, Lillie Noles. The court will be presented during the traditional GPS May Day ceremony on Wednesday, April 24, that honors all members of the senior class.

As an ambassador, Ms. Mills promotes the school in the Chattanooga community. As an athlete, she is a member of the varsity volleyball team and competes in the long jump, triple jump, discus and relays for the track team. A cheerleader, Ms. Noles is also a GPS ambassador.

At the presentation of the seniors and the court on May Day, Sarah Cobble and Monica Justo will be trainbearers, Hannah McKamey will be scepter bearer, and Becky Gardner will be the crown bearer.
