First dance hosted for the school

On Feb. 12, BSEEC and SAC had the honor of hosting a Valentine’s Day Dance at Rose Hill Nursing Home. The President of BSEEC, Brian Barlay helped put the dance together.
“People often get consumed with all the things that are going on with their lives and they inevitably forget to live the moment,” Barlay said.
You do not have to wear a cape, be president or any higher up positions to make a change or difference, Barlay said.
“Making a difference sometimes submerged from our personal struggles and inspiration. Let’s use those two things as a vehicle to create a future of altruism and humbleness,” Barlay said.
This is the first Dance BSEEC has hosted for the school and they are willing to do something like this again.
Barlay would like to do another dance with a different theme at some point before he graduates from Meramec.
“Unfortunately, this is my last semester here,” Barlay said.
The dance was a success; the atmosphere was filled with happiness and everyone was having a good time, Barlay said.
“They [Rose Hill Nursing Home] were surprised when they see the lights and the halls were decorated really nicely,” Barlay said.
The night ended with the crowning of Ralph Ford and Barbra Lambert as King and Queen.
