Director of Feelings

 

As the school year comes to a close, the senior class begins to say goodbye to San Marcos with the traditional senior events which have long marked our career in high school. Of those, one stands as the most anticipated: Mr. Royal. Coming up on Wednesday, May 22, the senior guys begin to dust off their suits and begin prepping as they prepare for their great debut. Mr. Royal has been a longstanding pageant at San Marcos, where guys who feel a calling ot the crown show off their skills to the crowd of students. This year, 10 guys will be competing for the crown, and the King’s Page is here to give you the exclusive on who is who. We took the time to go around and ask each contestant a few questions to better get ourselves acquainted with the contestants.
