The Jesuit student council, with the help of guidance counselor Mrs. Mary Favalora, led a lunchtime pep rally unlike any other in Traditions Courtyard. The pep rally was not for a football game. Not for a swim meet, or a wrestling meet. In fact, it wasn’t for an athletic event at all. It was a PSAT Pep Rally, the first of its kind at Carrollton and Banks.

In order to get their minds right for the school-wide Wednesday testing day, student council members attracted a large number of Blue Jays to the pep rally corner of the courtyard. From the second floor balcony they threw No. 2 pencils and “Thinking Caps” to students in the crowd. Mrs. Favalora led the group in a pump-up speech, which concluded with the cheer, “I Can, I Will!” Student council executive aide Paul James ended the pep rally, chanting “I believe that we will merit!” The PSAT Warrior-hopefuls in the junior class aim to win the battle tomorrow against the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test.
