Lovejoy’s Most Eligible Bachelors judging is taking place this week. Judges are reviewing more than 270 applications.

With the close of the bachelor application form, the judges began reviewing submissions. On Wednesday, Feb. 5, their 12 selections will be released as semifinalists for the school to vote on.

The semifinalists will include three bachelors from each grade. Their names will be announced in a Google Form and linked on Twitter and Instagram (@theredledgerlhs), and the original Bachelor announcement story. Anyone with a Lovejoy email may vote on one semifinalist for each grade.

“I’m really excited to see who the students all vote on,” senior Editor-In-Chief Madeline Sanders said. “We thought of making this whole ‘bachelor’ thing back in August as a fun way to get students involved in a similar manner to how Mr. Lovejoy does, so it is super cool to see it come into fruition.”

Until then, the four judges, including TRL’s seniors Grace Nguyen, Madeline Sanders, and Lily Hager, and AP Capstone teacher Cheryl Anderson, will collaborate in review of the 274 responses.

Having seniors as judges allows the panel to be able to recognize the most names as they have attended the high school for four years. Anderson, as a freshman english, AP seminar and AP research teacher recognizes the names of various students throughout the school regardless of grade.

“I’m excited to be a part of the judging to choose the best of the best of our Lovejoy bachelors,” Anderson said.

Quantity and quality of submissions will be considered for each candidate. As the forms supply only written responses and no photos, looks will not be considered, but instead likeability and personality expressed through applications and nominations.

“We have gotten some awesome submissions for people nominating their friends,” Sanders said. “I can’t wait to have this project completed so we can crown the bachelor.”

About the Contributors
Lily Hager, Editor-In-Chief
With the coming of her fourth and final year of high school, Lily Hager eagerly awaits the senior perks that accompany all who suffer from “senioritis”–including off periods, senior overalls and dual credit. Her freshman, sophomore and junior years were occupied by marching band, newspaper, several AP classes and leadership positions (including being drum major of the band and editor in chief of The Red Ledger junior year). Hager thrives any day that involves journaling, bible studies, time spent with friends or family, and ice cream. Her time at home is largely spent in her room, which she so carefully designed for the past several years into a safe haven. She fills her (rare) free time by cleaning, writing, reading, planning or talking (whether that be to her parents, her friends or her pet bunny, Boots). Despite her burning excitement for college at A&M, she is committed to enjoying her last year as an editor, conducting her last show, and living her last year in her childhood home. Last, but not least, she is certain to take advantage of one last year of writing, editing, and loving TRL.
Amiya Callicutt, Photographer
Junior Amiya Callicutt is a photographer on The Red Ledger for her second year. Callicutt is a soccer playing yogi, who loves Jesus. When Callicutt isn't playing soccer, you can find her practicing yoga, listening to music or hanging out with her friends. Callicutt listens to all types of music, except country. Her favorite genre of music is rap or R&B. She loves listening to The Weeknd, Ella Mai and many more artists. Never ask her who her favorite artist is because she will never know. Callicutt doesn't have any pets, but she has four cacti and an aloe vera plant that she loves just as much. Callicutt plays on the Solar u19 ECNL regional team. Callicutt has been playing soccer since she was three years old. Callicutt is very optimistic about this upcoming year.
Hannah Gonzalez, Graphics Editor
Mama Mia, here we go again. As she takes her last ride in the TRL classroom, Hannah Gonzalez is ready to end this year with a bang. Gonzalez serves as a Co-Graphics editor for the third year in a row and this is her fourth year on staff. When she’s not making killer graphics, you can most likely find Gonzalez on the volleyball court, at FCA meetings, in school or going for a joy ride in the Jeep that she named “Beep.” Although TRL is life, Gonzalez also enjoys going for late-night ice cream runs, watching early morning sunrises, going to church every Sunday morning and going on an occasional lake trip. To add to her list of accomplishments, Gonzalez has won three state championships and is looking for a fourth. With her happy planner by her side, Gonzalez is looking forward to kicking procrastination to the curb as she conquers her final year as a high school student.
