April 13th Plant High School had their 95th annual Pantherilla, consisting of a casino night theme. Plant High School PTSA planned a night in the casino room. The PTSA had playing cards on tables for the entertainment of students, to simulate the reality of this casino night. A red glow lit up the room from 7:30-10:30 pm, giving the students that casino glow. Plant PTSA also provided a selfie booth for PHS students to take pictures with their friends all night long. In 1929, Plant High School held its first Pantherilla. They crowned two seniors king and queen that night. Forever making history as the first king and queen of Pantherilla, King Robert of the House of Gilliam and Queen Becky of the House of Price were put into the history books.
