WHAT IS IT LIKE GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL IN THE MIDDLE OF A GLOBAL PANDEMIC: Graduating in the middle of a pandemic is very interesting. Many of the events that I had been looking forward to have either been canceled or changed to adhere with the pandemic. Despite this, though, our school has done a great job at honoring the students in every way that they can. Online classes are also very different from what I am used to. It is much easier to get distracted and behind on your work.

WHAT DID YOU LEARN ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR CLASSMATES THIS SEMESTER: That my classmates and I are able to adapt to great adversity.

WHAT IS A MEMORY OF YOUR SENIOR YEAR YOU’LL NEVER FORGET: The 2020 South High Marathon Dance. This Marathon was one of my favorite ones to be able to dance in and I had a great time. It was an amazing event to be able to get in before the cancellation of school.

WHAT YOU WILL MISS MOST ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL: Sports and the Marathon Dance

WHAT’S IN YOUR MUSIC PLAYER: I like pretty much all music (I’m not the biggest country fan though).

BEST PART ABOUT GRADUATING: The recognition for all of the hard work.

WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU: Seeing success result from hard work
