As the senior class gets closer to the highly anticipated May 25th Graduation day, the Class of ’19 juniors are one step closer to being the leaders on campus. Although this role is incredibly fun, it also comes hand in hand with new responsibilities and tasks.
The transition from junior to senior year is possibly the most significant due to the various amount of changes that happen such as testing/applying for the colleges of one’s dreams, taking charge of Falcon Force and ASB, and preparing to be role models for the younger classes with the seniority aspect coming into play. The Talon checked in with our current juniors to see what they were most and least excited for with the fast approaching last year of high school.
Incoming senior Jack Milliken (’19) is specifically looking forward to the laid back schedule that comes along with senior year, but is first to admit he will miss his senior friends.
“I’m really excited to have more electives and to be done with Spanish,” he says, “but I’m sad that all of the incredible friends that are seniors this year won’t be around campus to bug anymore”.
As for the college application process, Jack is among many who are dreading the work load that goes along with it.
“The application process is going to be long and I’m not super stoked to write a bunch of essays, but I’m excited to see where I get in.”
Fellow junior Georgiana Prevost (’19) is also not looking forward to the stressful process of applying to schools, but is more than ready to be the big dog on campus and finally being able to participate in the commissioning of the school mural.
“I’m excited to finally be one of the oldest ones on campus, but to also be a mentor to the younger students. I definitely benefited from older students giving me advice throughout my time in high school, so I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge” she says, “I’m also really excited to see how our class mural turns out. I hope it can live up to this year’s.
Aside from the senior mural and senior privileges, she is thrilled for the day she finally gets her diploma.
“What I’m most excited about though is finally graduating after working so hard all throughout high school and to finally walk across the stage and get my diploma”.
Nick Gutierrez (’19) is especially eager for his last year of Academic Decathlon after an extremely successful run his junior year.
“As a future senior, I’m excited that I won’t be a junior anymore because this year has been exhausting and a hard school year,” he says, “I also have Academic Decathlon next year with the topic being the 1960s, which is a very fitting topic to end my academic decathlon career in high school”.
Although Nick is elated about competing next year, he is dreading the goodbyes to the people who have made CB the place to be.
“I’m least excited about it being my last year here at CB with my friends, a lot of them being people I’ve been friends with since freshmen year, so it’s in a way gonna be sad that I won’t get to see them often or at all after senior year”
“My friends in these past years have been well basically my second family,” he added. “Also senior year is my last year at CB, the schools been my second home since freshmen year and I don’t know it’s just gonna be weird not getting up every morning to go to CB”.
The Talon wishes the best of luck to you Class of ’19! Fly high your senior year and remember to embrace every moment before it soars by, college applications and all. You guys got this!
