Students of Pine Tree Academy attended the first ever Pine Tree Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, January 31st 2016. The event, this year's Student Association sponsored winter banquet, was a tailored spin on the Oscars hosted by our very own Ephriam Bernard, assistant dean of men. The eight awards granted throughout the evening ranged from best note scribe all the way to the best topic derailer. Students were nominated by their peers and faculty of the academy selected the winner. Each award was presented by a different faculty member. Memorable moments include the Glovers acting out the all too familiar scene of students arriving "fashionably late" to school, Mr. Krueger educating the audience on the 9 types of laughter and Mr. Harlow bamboozlling his wife and other onlookers with his uncanny ability to know...everything. Stuffing themselves on popcorn, vegetable lasagna, salad, rolls, unlimited fountain drinks, brownies and an ice cream bar, the students contested for street cred as the host pitted them against one another in ridiculous games and challenges throughout the evening. The night ended with a viewing of Secretariat, an inspirational film chronicling the rise and ultimate triumph of the greatest racehorse of all time and the family that raced him.
