Seniors storm onto the field, excited for the start of their last MAST pep rally.

On Oct. 12,  MAST Academy’s anticipated annual pep rally was cancelled due to rain. The pep rally consisted of a series of competitions that included dancing, pushups, eating pie, and playing tic-tac-toe. Red, white, blue, and yellow face paint ran down the faces of its high schoolers as they ran back to class in the rain, disappointed. For its seniors, this disappointment was doubled as they feared that they would not be able to participate in the pep rally their last year. This was not the case, however.

Luckily, later during the day, the pep rally was redone and the students were able to come back to see the full show and give everyone a fair chance to win the competition. After the second pep rally ended, the seniors proudly claimed their win.

Michael Perez, born in Miami, is a freshman at MAST Academy. 2023 is first year away from his middle school, Mater Grove Academy, Perez is excited to learn more in his two new favorite classes: Biology and Journalism. A passionate animal lover, MAST’s history as a science and technology based high school specialized in marine biology due to its location in Virginia Key and origins as a Marine museum, attracted Perez. Perez’s love for animals expands in his own home where he owns “a dog, a bird, a lizard, and a scorpion”. His family of four, including his two parents and his older brother, is a family of eight. As for his second favorite class this year, Journalism, Perez does not only like his teacher, Mr. Bunch, but he also enjoys its writing aspect. “I used to write a bit as a kid… stories and stuff,” Perez said. Outside of school, Perez enjoys other activities. “I like to relax and play video games and watch movies with family … adventure and horror,” Perez said. Although Perez has only attended MAST for about two weeks, he is confident about this school year. “I like it so far. Pretty good,” Perez said.
