KREWE OF NYX ANNOUNCES FIRST LEGACY GODDESS

MEDIA ALERT

KREWE OF NYX ANNOUNCES FIRST LEGACY GODDESS

NEW ORLEANS — The Mystic Krewe of Nyx can  boast about another first in its impressive young history — a legacy goddess. Miss Shelby Ann Seuzeneau, daughter of Kevin and Lori Seuzeneau, will reign as Goddess Nyx VIII during the 2018-19 season. Lori Seuzeneau reigned as Goddess Nyx V during the 2015-16 season.

“This will be such a special experience for both Shelby and Lori,” said Julie Lea, Nyx founder and Captain. “Legacies fuel organizations like ours, and Mardi Gras krewes in general, for generations. This is the start of something special.”

As a teenager, Shelby would watch her mother, who is Co-Captain of Nyx, work countless hours at her day job, then continue to work in the evenings to help make Nyx the success it is today.

“I look forward to this year being one of the best of my life,” Shelby Seuzeneau said. “Not only do I get to represent an amazing group of women, but I also get to share unforgettable moments with my mother as we begin our journey as the first legacies of Nyx.”

Wearing the same crown to the ball that her mother wore during her 2015 reign, Shelby will experience the sights and sounds of Mardi Gras in a brand new way — from the top of her float instead of behind a barricade.

“The legacy of Mardi Gras royalty is one of a kind,” Lori Suezeneau said. “This is such a special moment that I will always cherish and share with my daughter. It will never be replaced or forgotten.”

The Mystic Krewe of Nyx will roll on the traditional Uptown route on February 27, 2019. For more information visit KreweOfNyx.org.
