  • The annual Kayette Mother-Daughter Tea took place Wednesday, April 24, at GHS. Ceremonies began at 1 p.m. in Shireman Auditorium and lasted until 3 p.m.
    Christian Provence, the new Girard Kayette president, greeted Kayettes and their guests.
    Principal Todd Ferguson then welcomed attendees, stating that the Mother-Daughter Tea has been held at GHS for 82 years.
    Garnett High School graduate Trish Bandre was guest speaker. She has been involved in the KAY Program for almost 30 years, and after this summer she will have completed her 26th year of serving on the KAY Leadership Camp Staff.
    She spoke about how heroic a mother truly is and read parts of the book, M.O.M., which stands for mom operating manual.
    Mrs. Bandre told all attendees to cherish their mothers and appreciate what they have done. She also wished graduating seniors the best of luck in the future.
    Regarding the speaker, senior Michaela Everitt said, “I thought Mrs. Bandre was hilarious. She is the most entertaining speaker we have had since I have been in high school.”
    Seniors Lenzie and McKenzie Vulgamore then sang “Don’t Forget to Remember Me” for Kayettes and their guests. Senior Taylor Evans accompanied them on guitar.
    Senior Chanel Jackson then read an original poem, “Like Mother, Like Daughter.”
    Co-sponsor Kayla Pruitt informed guests of various service accomplishments and presented a service award to Ms. Evans for participating in every service project Kayettes held.
    Next, an installation ceremony took place where outgoing and incoming officers and board members gave each other candles and flowers.
    A video presentation by Ashley Johnson and the sixth hour Multimedia class was shown to the group. The video consisted of senior pictures of each Kayette senior, her mother’s senior picture and then a photo of them together. As the pictures were shown, the seniors walked to the stage for recognition and then introduced their guests.
    Taylor Evans, the 2012-13 Girard Kayette president, ended the ceremony with a farewell speech about the heroic acts of a mother.
    Following the ceremony, cake and punch were served in the cafeteria.
    Mrs. Pruitt added, “Mother-Daughter Tea is a long-standing, traditional ceremony. I was really impressed with our guest speaker and how she celebrated mothers and their daughters in a humorous way.”
    Robyn O’Malley serves as co-sponsor of the group.
