Red Night was on Feb. 9 and the purpose of the event was to support the American Heart Association during the boys and girls basketball games.

To prepare for the week, StuCo conducted a spirit week to prepare for the event. Many students dressed as simple as color wars to as fun as in 80’s attire or as emotions.

“I participate in spirit week because it’s so much fun,” sophomore Emily Gann said. “School is usually boring most of the time so when you get to dress out of the ordinary, it adds something new to it.”

To conclude the week, Liberty hosted a pep rally to hype students up about the event, recognize the winter sports teams and showcase some performances. StuCo also prepared activities and a dance in front of the student body.

Junior Donavan Arrington was crowned as the spirit king and sophomore Annette Oliphant won spirit queen. Ms. Kleiber won most spirited teacher.

Funds raised went to the American Heart Association. Many clubs and organizations got involved to help raise money with the cake auction and other activities. Educators Rising sold monograms.

“The red and pink monograms will go to American Heart Association,” juniors Abby Visconti and Autumn Jones said.

The tradition of the “Parting of the Red Sea” took place during the game led by senior Will Koester. The big crowd  showed how much spirit Liberty has. The goal was to get the crowd pumped up for the rest of the game against Washington through the winter dance that happened after the game. Liberty won 64-41.

“It was fun to see and it bonds our school together and it’s a good way for our school to participate,” junior Kara Collier said.

The Winter Dance theme was “Dance Your Heart Out” and about 100 people attended this year. It was an easy way for different groups of friends to come together and dance the night away.

With many clubs and organizations helping out, Red Night was a success and it was a fun way for the student body to not only to enjoy the evening but also support a good cause.
