Farewell Seniors!


Kori Scruggs, Staff Reporter

The last quarter of the year has finally arrived. It’s almost always the most anticipated quarter of the season, the last obstacle before summer break. However, this time around, there is no “summer break”, just summer.  

We all knew this was going to come, it was inevitable. Anyone we’ve ever talked to told us these four years would fly by faster than we could ever anticipate. Of course, we never believed it, we had four whole years left; until we didn’t. 

Class of 2022 has been through extraordinary events, nothing of which ever happened in the movies. Protests, weary elections, invasions and potential wars, and the most prominent factor, Covid-19. All this adversity caused for us to have major character development. We found ourselves more than we ever expected to.  

“These four years have kicked my behind, but I’m thrilled to see what’s in store for the future,” senior Denea Youngblood said.  

In the upcoming months, we have everything to look forward to. Prom, the all-night party, graduation, etc. Although these years have been far from normal, there are high hopes for these to go as planned and allow us to make memories that will last a lifetime. 

The real world is approaching, however I have very few worries for this class. The strength and endurance we have built up makes us unstoppable. Instead of preparing for the world, the world better prepare for us. Here we come.
