Blue and White night at Ladue Horton Watkins High School gets students fired up for the school year.
Bringing the house down Tuesday night at Ladue High School Blue and White Night were student co-hosts, seniors Jody Peterson and Jehu Chesson. With remarkable confidence and charisma each young host displayed poise and brought a high level of energy to the evening’s festivities.

There was not a dry eye in the Curtis household as MICDS' Charlie Curtis capped off an undefeated senior season with a state championship last Saturday at the state tennis tournament at the Cooper Tennis Complex in Springfield.
