Congratulations to Adam Bridges and Celeste Ybanez who were named king and queen of the 2019 Mardi Gras Ball! Candidates raised $88,000 for the Haywood County Schools Foundation.


How it works:

The male and female candidates who raise the most money throughout the month of February will be crowned king and queen of the Mardi Gras Ball. All money raised from the competition and at the Mardi Gras Ball is used for student scholarships, teacher recruitment and retention, and to fund grants for Haywood County teachers to purchase classroom supplies and attend training and workshops.
