A widely known tradition at Padua Academy is the pairing of a freshman and a senior, or the pairing of a “big sister” and a “little sister”. On Tuesday, May 1, freshmen and seniors came together in the cafe during flex for a legacy ceremony.

The girls sat down and watched a video with pictures from the activities the “sisters” participated in throughout the year while “Stand By You” by Rachel Platten playing in the background. Short speeches were given by a few seniors, freshmen, Mrs. Burris, and Mrs. Pugliese.

The seniors then gave stickers to their “little sisters”. They chose the words and design that would be put on it, “there is strength in sisterhood”. Then as the seniors left, they were given “Panda Power Packs” to help them get through the last few weeks of school. The freshmen gave the candy that was put in the bags.

Freshman, Krissy Kanu, said, “It was a great way to celebrate the end of the year and say our final goodbyes.” This was the last scheduled meeting between the pairings before the seniors leave Padua and the freshmen become sophomores.
