Congratulations to Whitman’s Juniors and Seniors on an incredible Powder Puff event last night. From the very beginning, the event evidenced the great students, staff and community we have at Whitman. Ifedayo Balogun sang the National Anthem just long enough for us to hear how beautiful her voice is before the microphone went out. Then, everyone – boys, girls, parents, staff members all sang the National Anthem in unison – Whitman style.

Congratulations to all the female participants on the most exciting game ever! After a great Senior comeback, the Juniors scored with 2 seconds left to win, 36-30. And congratulations to the male cheerleaders who wowed the crowd and made us all laugh. Great job everyone. Thank you to Mrs. Leogrande, Mrs. Latko and Mr. Graziano for facilitating the event.
