This year, I have the opportunity to "host" the show, making my return after a few years away. My mission? Make Senior Awards Great Again. My biggest problem: what's the line between funny and irreverent. While there's definitely some dead time that needs cut, the only thing that makes an award show better is a bit of humor and showmanship. Too much, however, it can easily turn into the Me Show, rather than showcasing the students. As a result, I have a keep my one-liners subtle, concise, and measured. It's a tough balance to walk.
Regardless, hopefully some new energy will give the show a little more life. Sometimes, just a small change of perspective is all you need.
