LAPLACE — St. Charles Catholic High School announced the Royal Court members of the Krewe de Charles Bal Masque XXXIII, “Arabian Nights”. The annual carnival ball will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1 in the school gymnasium.

The Carnival Ball at St. Charles Catholic High School is a tradition for the school and the entire community. As Jack Snowdy once stated, “The frivolity and glittering Carnival Balls and other carefree events of the Mardi Gras season are mere preludes to the reality of Lent and the preparation for the death and joyous resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The King and Queen, who will represent The Sultan and Sultana, are Evan Beau Roussel, son of Terry and Melissa Roussel of Lutcher and Riley Rae Monica, daughter of Ty and Dennille Monica of Paulina.

Both the King and Queen are very active students at St. Charles Catholic High School. Evan Roussel is a member of the football and baseball teams and has signed a letter of intent to play football at Nicholls State University; he is also a leadership team member for the SCC Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Riley Monica is an SCC cheerleader, National Honor Society member, an SCC Ambassador, and an FCA member. Riley is a junior and represents second generation Krewe de Charles royalty. Her uncles, Dustan and Donovan Louque were King of Krewe de Charles III and V, respectively. Her mom, Dennille Louque Monica was Queen of Krewe de Charles X.

Page to the King is Kase Andrew Roussel, son of Ory and Samy Roussel. Pages to the Queen are Frankie Marie Foulon, daughter of Ryan and Katie Foulon and Logan Elise Monica, daughter of Nicholas and Casey Monica.
