Over my past four years at Seton High School, I have made many memories and friends I will always have. It has been a bit of a roller coaster between school work, sports, and everything else that Seton has to offer. Everyone complains about school, but I have to say I wouldn’t be who I am without Seton. These last few weeks of being a senior here are becoming surreal. Honestly, freshman year seems like ages ago and now everything is quickly coming to an end. Summer and college sounds amazing, but Seton is my comfort zone now, and it is a part of my routine. It’s going to take me a little while to adjust to the changes that are coming ahead. The faces I see in the hall are friends and classmates I have grown to know. Leaving is going to be rough. It really is the start of a whole new journey on my own.
Freshman year to senior year I have taken so many classes, been taught by many teachers, and experienced pep rallies, prayer services, retreats, and assemblies,some good, some bad, I know all the stress I have put myself through and all of the homework, tests, and exams are going to pay off.
Seton sports also contributed to my time here. Track really introduced me to what Seton sports are all about. I learned about myself and met many people I probably wouldn’t have had the chance to otherwise. I want to say thank you to my coaches and the sports directors that have made Seton sports what they are. In addition to sports, our last field day is coming up and I want to make it the best.
It has been an honor for me to see the changes Seton has experienced and all of the things my class has had to offer. We have gained and lost staff in my time, all who have impacted me. Seton shaped me and opened me up to more than ever before. Volunteering and retreats really influenced me. I found my faith, and I have given back to my community thanks to Seton. I know I will be successful in college knowing I have the skills to succeed on my own and be who I am.
This is a final thank you to all the teachers, counselors, and staff members of Seton that have made my experience here what it is and what I have come to embrace. But most of all thank you to all my classmates who have shared the journey with me. I have made friends that I will have for a lifetime and moments I will always cherish.
