Big Blue Friday “plays” in JMo’s favor after 22 years
October 6, 2022
Fine Arts Coordinator, Jeremy Morton, also known as “JMo”, won Big Blue Friday for the first time in his 22 years of teaching at Prospect.
Big Blue Friday is a tradition where every Friday, one teacher and one student are selected at random to win some Prospect swag, as long as they are wearing any Prospect gear or anything blue.
Morton heard his name called over the announcements and has never felt more excited. He brought his entire class, as well as the choir class, to the activities office where he was rewarded with his Big Blue Friday t-shirt. To make things even better, he then gave an acceptance speech.
As everyone was walking back, Morton spotted the drumline playing and they walked around the corner in the direction of Morton.
“I’m like ‘What is this? Who won?’ and then I realized as I walked past [the drumline],” Morton said. “They turned around and followed me into the theater and onto the stage and we all partied and had a good time.”
The chances of winning are fairly slim, so being here 22 years and finally winning deserves some celebration.
