Most likely to win a superlative: Class of 2023 recognizes fellow students

Feb 8, 2023

MATTAPOISETT — There was one major rule at Old Rochester Regional High School’s Senior Superlatives night on Wednesday, Feb. 8, said host Michael Beson, a teacher at the school:

“If you lose, do not boo, you just need to internalize it and feel really bad about it,” joked Beson. “At your 10 year reunion, when you’re out at a bar and you’re all talking about it, you can have that anger then.”

Senior superlatives award Old Rochester Regional High School seniors with honors like “most likely to succeed” or “most likely to talk their way out of a ticket.”

According to Old Rochester 2023 Class President Markus Pierre, senior superlatives are a longstanding tradition at the school.

“It’s a tradition at ORR,” said Pierre. “We’ve been planning on doing this since the beginning [of our high school careers].”

This is the first year since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic that senior superlatives were held in the auditorium. In previous years the event was held outdoors.

This year, “around 50” 2023 graduates were awarded by their classmates. The class of 2023 voted for four nominees in each category.

“You get to know these people and now you get to show them what you feel about them,” said Pierre.

Senior superlative night is also a fundraising event for the Old Rochester Regional High School Class of 2023.

“We work really hard to make everyone feel a part of the community,” said Pierre. “They give it right back to us and make us feel appreciated.”

The first award of the night, “most musical,” was posthumously awarded to Nolan Gibbons, a rising sophomore at Old Rochester Regional High School who died in 2020. He was known far and wide as a virtuoso musician with a heart of gold.

His parents, Warren and Sheila, accepted the award on his behalf.

“We wanted to say how touched and honored we are that you guys are keeping him with you, it means a lot to us,” said Sheila. “We know that he would be here cheering everyone on.”
