Something Borrowed, Something New

The New, All-School Champion Trophy


Anagi Pieris

what will it look like?

As the adage goes: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Here at Westminster Christian Academy, we love to meld tradition from the generations past with groundbreaking modern innovations.


For the first time in 45 years, the 2020-21 grade-level winners of spirit week will be presented with a never-before-seen prize: The Florence Cup. Whereas winners were previously commemorated by having their grade level engraved on a plaque board, this spirit week grades are setting their sights on a two-handled, cup-like trophy. 


Besides securing the accolade of school-wide bragging rights, successive grades who earn the said Florence Cup are also bestowed with the privilege of having their own class permanently etched on the cup, in keeping with the practice of celebrating each Spirit Week winner and forever marking a victorious upset or triumphant conclusion to the week’s events.


The christening of the new trophy cup is not without fanfare; its reputation precedes it. Bearing the name of the mastermind behind the first Spirit Week, Florence Lewis, the new award has additionally been emblazoned with all the winners from Spirit Week ‘90 to the present. 


Whether they are graduates from as far back as ‘90 or as recent as alumni from ‘07, Florence Lewis touched the lives of numerous students as each one has moved beyond the halls of Westminster, entered the workforce, and left lasting impressions of their own. 


Thanks to a generous donation from the Muschanys, descendants of Florence Lewis, her legacy is sure to live on in Westminster through the spirit week trophy.
