Students gathered in the gym Wednesday during activity for the fall pep rally. The annual rally is held to celebrate and cheer on STA’s fall sports teams.

This year’s rally, however, was also focused on ending pediatric cancer. Junior Jordan Klumb presented a video telling the story of a young patient, to promote a t-shirt fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In addition to the video, spirit club acknowledged athletes that participated in spring sports last school year, followed by performances by the dance team and the cast of the fall musical, 9 to 5.

A third and final performance came as a surprise to many students as Strange Music artist and STA alum Mackenzie Nicole O’Guin was driven into the gym on a golf cart by principal of student affairs Liz Baker. Nicole performed her hits ‘Deleted’ and ‘Actin Like You Know’ featuring Tech N9ne.

The pep rally was closed out in true STA fashion with a dance party on the gym floor to ‘Party in the USA’ by Miley Cyrus.
