Nykerk season has now arrived

Hey everyone! I hope is everyone is having a great week! I have been having a fabulous week and have been quite busy. I am now involved with Nykerk, and I am really enjoying it! Nykerk is Hope tradition that is between even and odd year. It is similar to “the Pull” because there are morale boys. In “the pull” the girls were the moralers but in Nykerk the guys morale for the girls. Every night at practice the boys perform a skit for the girls. Nykerk is a song, theater, and oration competition between even and odd year. The other year cannot know what the song is of the other year until the night of the Nykerk performance, which occurs in the Civic Center on November 6. Our families will be able to see us perform because it is also family weekend. I am glad I am involved in Nykerk because it is a great opportunity to meet other girls and we have so much fun at our practices. I am a song girl along with about 120 other girls. Our class is the largest class they have had so far! Our upper classman even year coaches are a lot of fun too and make practice very enjoyable. Even though practice is every night for 2 hours, it goes by so fast and is definitely worth the time commitment.


Here is a picture of the Nykerk Staff performing:


Have a great weekend everyone!
