Guess what seniors, you’ve made it! You’ve finally made it to senior year and there is only a little bit of time left until we are all moving on with our lives and going to college. It’s scary and exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. The friends we’ve made and the bonds we’ve created will be forever cherished within us as we all take on the next chapter of our lives. No class will ever be quite like the Class of 2017. Some CB students shared their favorite memories throughout their four years and what they are looking forward to most in college.
Marcus Cepeda (’17) is excited yet nervous about the future. He shares how CB has shaped him as not only a student but a person.
“Connecting with all my classmates for one last year has been my favorite part about senior year. I have a lot of good friends in this senior class. It’s weird thinking that I won’t see a lot of them again. I know I’m really going to miss them a lot already and it’s just great to have one last ride with all of them.”
The memories that this senior class have made throughout the past four years will be ones that we never forget.
“I’d say the biggest highlights have been making friends and the KBFT programs. All the trips I’ve gotten to go on from Tahoe with SLRT, Kairos, STN Atlanta, and just all the fun activities that CB has offered me,” Marcus shared.
Gray Schubert (’17) mentioned how different senior year has been from the rest of the years at CB and how much he will miss the friends he’s made after graduation.
“The best part about senior year is just being at the top of the heap, I think it has kind of given me a different outlook on the whole school in general,” Gray shared. “The friendships I’ve made have just been strengthened throughout the four years and just knowing that it’s almost time to move on but still enjoying this last year.”
Sophia Lewis (’17) added to Gray’s insight as she shares her favorite parts of high school.
“The biggest highlights of high school have definitely been winning rivalry games against Saint Francis and other schools. Holy Court and Holy Hoops for example and this year, being really close to winning Holy Bowl versus Jesuit.”
Sophia will be attending the University of Toledo in the fall on a full soccer scholarship. She expanded on her excitement and fear about college.
“I’m most looking forward to meeting new people and being able to study what I want to study. I’m excited about being on my own and being really independent,” she said.
“I’m most nervous about fitting in and not being a loner,” she laughed. “Meeting new people and spending four years away from home and having to live on my own.”
While moving on and starting a new chapter can be exciting, it can also be extremely nerve-wracking. We are all nervous about college.
The same reasons we are excited about college can also be the very reasons we are nervous about it as Jalen Suwa (’17) expressed.
“I’m looking forward to the freedom aspect and being on my own and kind of experiencing my first real step into adulthood,” he expressed.
“I’m most nervous about the fact that it’s my first step into adulthood,” he laughed.
“I’m excited about being in a new city and getting away from home. I’m excited to study what I want and be independent,” Maddy Kenshol (’17) shared.
Gray is a CB senior who is passionate about music and sound. He hopes to pursue a career in music production in college and beyond.
“I want to go to Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee because it has a program for business music which is something that I have always been interested in and something I hope to pursue as a career,” he said.
Marcus shared his top schools and his hopes to further his career in film production.
“Chapman University is my number one choice for film production, USC, Loyola Marymount, UCLA, all for film.”
“After college, I’ll hopefully be going into the film industry but who knows? Maybe you’ll see my name on the big screen one day,” he laughed.
While we are all busy thinking about the future and worrying about college, it is important to take a moment and appreciate all the amazing friends we’ve made and the memories we’ve shared here at CB.
Maddy expressed how she will miss the community feel of the school the most.
“Oh my gosh! I’ll miss all my friends and the whole community. I’ll miss all the fun things that we get to participate in. It’s just so home-y. I’m going to miss everyone!”
“I will really miss our sense of community and how close we all are, especially our class,” added Jalen.
Christian Brothers has created a world where we as students feel welcome and at home. It is going to be difficult for the graduating Class of 2017 to leave such an amazing and comfortable environment.
“I will miss everything. It has just been such a wonderful experience. All the teachers I’ve met, all the friends that I’ve made, all the curriculum I’ve learned,” Gray admitted. “Coming to CB everyday has just become a huge part of my life and who I am. I think leaving what I know and what I’m comfortable with is going to be very difficult.”
Excitement and nerves are stirring amongst the senior students as they make big decisions and become more independent. We will all miss CB dearly and everything it has offered us throughout the years.
Students are looking forward to the future and the amazing things they hope to accomplish in college and so on. The senior class will hold on to the values they have been taught here at CB to help guide them through the next chapter of life.
Here’s to the future, Falcons.
