As senior year begins to come to an end, the memories start becoming distant thoughts. College is the main thing on everyone’s mind. Going from high school to college is a huge step but one that will lead to even more amazing things. All the friends made over the past four years will soon be moving on to new adventures and experiences. Everyone will adventure off and experience things they’ve never imagined.

“I’m legit ready for college, but I’m not ready to grow up,” Senior Quentin Savage said.

According to Mrs. Stephanie Jenkins, dance teacher, this school year has been amazing for seniors; they have been lucky to change and coordinate different things that students
couldn’t do the past couple of years.

“I’m going to miss our senior class because we all know the school will be so boring when they leave,” Junior Keyona Peters said.  “Overall, though, this year was fun, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”

According to Ms. Alethea Barnes, English teacher, when the students feel their time in high school coming to an end, they start to realize how much they secretly like high school and begin to realize how much they are going to miss it.

“It’s crazy how fast these past four years went, but it’s time to graduate!” Senior Jaelen Crewell said.

As the college class of 2020 gears up for their last days of high school, there are a lot of emotions and uncertainties about the next year and the three years after that.

Seniors are on the brink of making some of the biggest decisions of their lives, and for many students and their parents, it will feel as if this moment came sooner than they anticipated, according to Barnes.

“I have been a big help to the senior class, and I wouldn’t dare take what I have done for them back,” she said.

On May 20, an assembly will be held to recognize the accomplishments of the senior class.

“On behalf of the senior class, I really do appreciate everything and everyone who has helped out and worked with our senior class,” Senior Kenyatta Jeffcoat, Senior Class President, said.
