Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and children of all ages celebrated the 65th anniversary of the FSU Flying High Circus during a weekend of events presented by the Circus Alumni Association. The spectacular began with an evening gala at The Moon. Kaylan Zysk, Sharon Zysk (B.S. ’92), Kendall Minter and Annasue Minter (B.S. ’93) made a splash with their red carpet arrival. Inside, Leigh Heisinger (B.S. ’61) reflected on the troupe’s past while Vice President for University Relations Liz Maryanski (M.B.A. ’88) and Flying High Circus Director Chad Matthews posed with Circus Alumni Association President January Littlejohn (B.S. ’99, M.S. ’01) and Vice President Tricia Ravenhorst (B.A. ’97). The next day brought a lunchtime barbecue at Oglesby Union, where future entertainer Jake Ravenhorst practiced his acrobatics. That night, current Flying High entertainers mingled with their predecessors after a production of what all in attendance agreed to be the greatest show on Earth.

For two talented musicians at FSU, the semester reached a crescendo with the Band Alumni Association’s annual presentation of scholarships to students who have demonstrated excellence in performance, arranging or composing. The smiles on Band Alumni Association Associate Director for Administration Lucas Bhuvasorakul (B.S. ’97), scholarship recipients Jennifer Bruijn and Eric Pablo Elias-Rodriguez, and Band Alumni Association Board Member Meghan McCaskill (B.S. ’06) hit a high note following the presentation of awards.
