The day that seemed so far off on September 5th is finally here. The Class of 2018 is graduating. Tests are done. Final papers are handed in. Caps and gowns are at the ready for Saturday's graduation ceremony at LIU Post Tilles Center. As a senior, the true meaning of the word AWE is what many are feeling. Wonder and excitement along with a little fear.
Over the final weeks of the school year, we asked some of our seniors to reflect on their fondest memories, things they'll miss about MHS, and advice to next year's seniors. Here are some of their thoughts. Click the video link about for more.
Amanda Bowen: Some of my best memories are Carnival Night and the Junior Prom Fashion Show. There are some things I'll miss, but after graduation I’m ready to move on.
Erin Buckley: I'll definitely miss the sports teams. Everyone was so close. We've all been together since 9th grade.
Raquel Galan: I'm going to miss the support from teachers and staff. In college it's different. College teachers have so many more kids to deal with. Here, there was a lot of one on one.
Jessie Kivatisky: I'm going to miss the close connection with teachers.
Amanda Poppe.: My advice to the Class of 2019 would be don’t procrastinate. You’ll end up spending your final days in the Blue Room making up work rather than spending time with your friends.
Sadie Landivar: A fondest memory is the morning of homecoming, all meeting before sunrise. Also when my boyfriend made his prom-posal.
Jordan Sinert: My best memory is senior "cut day". We met at Jones Beach. We were all together as a whole group.
