Shark Tank 2015

An event unlike any Grace has hosted before, Shark Tank tested the waters at GBC. The room was lined with chairs and couches quickly filled by nerves and anticipation. The student body met in the Rec Room for an afternoon of ideas. In the background a 10 hour loop of the “Jaws” theme song played on and on; duh dum, duh dum… and snacks decorated tables. Bubbles floated up past the gray foam shark that swallowed up the TV and swirled around the fishbowl which held, Tank, our mascot. There were five large chairs lining the legendary blue stage with five “sharks” waiting to chew on the students’ ideas. Full Article >
