Richard Petty

“I’ll give everyone who voted for me a solo concert,” Petty said.

Petty enjoys spending his days sleeping, eating, and singing. He is on varsity track and hopes to run at either William Penn or Defiance College when he graduates.

Shannon Donahue

“Be a boss, vote for Frank DeVos,” Donahue said.

Donahue is a member of NHS, Key Club, Diversity Club, and the Leadership class. She has a passion for varsity cheer.


Frank DeVos

“Join the Swamp,’” DeVos said.

He was a starting sophomore for North’s Final Four Team in 2012 and he may be the last remaining player, but neither DeVos nor the entire Crusader fan base will ever forget the Breslin Center experience.

DeVos is not only on the varsity basketball and varsity football teams, but also he is a member of Student Council and Link Crew.

Kayla Cardeccia

“I cannot thank everyone enough for voting for me,” Cardeccia said.

She is a varsity soccer player, and a member of both Link Crew and NHS.


Christian Jordan

“I’m going to win in style and twerk it out,” Jordan said.

Jordan enjoys playing basketball and is one of several members of the Varsity Football Team on the court.


Alexis Carlson

“It’s a surreal feeling because I have watched seniors on court for years and now I am in the same position,” Carlson said.

Carlson is Student Council president, editor-in-chief of the newspaper, and co-captain of varsity basketball, as well as a member of NHS, Link Crew, Leadership Council, and the Leadership class.


Brad Taylor

“Vote for the kid with the black eye,” Taylor said.

Taylor plays varsity soccer and, oddly enough, can move the tendons in his knuckles. Taylor lived in Royal Oak until ninth grade before he joined Crusader Nation.

Carsen Janssen

“I’m excited to ride in the truck with my escort Brad Taylor; I hope I don’t fall off,” Janssen said.

Like her escort, the kid with the black eye, Janssen enjoys playing varsity soccer; she is also the secretary for Student Council’s E-Board and a member of NHS, Link Crew, and the Leadership class.


Spencer Palm

“I am shocked and honored to be on court; thanks to everyone who voted for me,” Palm said, “Spencer Palm for king and Hayley Tomich for queen.”

He is a member of Student Council, Link Crew, NHS, Drama Club, and choir. He loves being in the Drama Club and the musicals because he can hang out with his friends at the rehearsals.

Hayley Tomich

“I guess this proves I have a lot more friends than I thought I did,” Tomich said.

Tomich is a member of NHS, Link Crew, Make a Difference Club, the Student Advisory Board, Leadership Council, and is a page editor for the newspaper; she also plays varsity soccer.


Sean Koski

“It will be a tough game but I’m sure we will come out with the W,” Koski said.

Koski said he normally just eats, sleeps, and watches “Sports Center.” Koski plays varsity football, baseball, and basketball.

He has high hopes for the game Friday night.

Abby LaPorte

“My partner is Troy Bolton,” LaPorte said.

LaPorte is a member of Link Crew, NHS, Leadership Council, Key Club, and Make a Difference Club; she also plays soccer and volleyball.


Noah Bultz

“Join the Ark and vote for Noah,” Bultz said.

Bultz plays varsity football and basketball, and is a member of Link Crew.

Amanda Falkenhagen

“Join the Ark, vote Noah and Amanda,” Falkenhagen said.

She is captain of the Varsity Volleyball Team; Falkenhagen is also a member of NHS, Leadership Council, Link Crew, and the Leadership class.


Tyler Sirut

“Don’t hate me because I’m royal,” Sirut said.

Sirut plays for both the varsity football and varsity basketball teams. Sirut loves shoes and fast cars; he spends his time at home hanging out with his friends.

Hailey Wilson

“Tyler and I are going to win and be the cutest couple out there,” Wilson said.

She runs track and enjoys doing community service, such as volunteering at swim meets and at SACC at Carkenord Elementary.
