The 2013 Spring Cake-Off frosted its way into Goodwin history on Wednesday, March 27. Boasting a high turnout, six different teams competed for decoration dominance.

The winners and Decorators Supreme for the next year is team Fast & Furious comprised of Kiewanna Gonsalves, Devonn Smith, Jeremiah Gilmore & Shelton Watkins. Their interpretation of “Spring Forward, Fall Back” left many in the audience WOWed with their intricate designs and use of an actual cooked meal as a decoration.

In the end, the Navigator staff team finished in a close 2nd place with an elegant and quaint Riverside scene featuring a surprise appearance from our very own mascot ,Ebb, as he had gone fishin’.

It was a tough decision to make, which is why a special thanks is in order for to our guest judges Amariah Boland (Ms. Goodwin), Shane Davis (Mr. Goodwin), Dr. Angela Skyers, Marrie Ayub and Surbhi Patel.

Another thank you is extended to Vice President for Advancement Brooke Penders and Dean of Students Dr. Sandy Wirth for being our keynote speakers.
