2018-19 Senior Sunrise Service

The Class of 2019’s high school experience is coming to an end. We pulled countless all-nighters, stressed over essays, and turned in assignments within 30 seconds of the deadlines. But we have also made some of the best memories and friends imaginable. Four years ago we walked onto Xavier’s campus as timid and voiceless Freshmen. Now we leave as intelligent, caring, and well-rounded people that are capable of tackling the challenges that lay before us. We are prepared to move onto the next chapter of our lives.

The last quarter of Senior year is a great time to reflect on unforgettable experiences, opportunities, and memories. One of Brooklyn Bergmann’s greatest high school accomplishments was designing the 2018-2019 Yearbook cover. She spent hours perfecting the visuals and feels proud to be a part of her Senior yearbook. She will miss being apart of the publications team and offers thanks to Mrs. McHugh for inspiring her creativity.

Daniel Martinez is most proud of bringing both his football and baseball teams to CIF playoffs. He will always remember the amazing memories he made with his teammates at Xavier.

Jenna Braun’s favorite high school memory is her Kairos experience. The K25 retreat allowed her to strengthen her relationship with God and her friends. She appreciated the opportunity to experience genuine love. Jenna would like to thank Mrs. Mason for being a role model and inspiring her to chase her dreams. She said, “Mrs. Mason has taught me everything I know about art and has guided me on my path to TCU.”

As students begin to commit to colleges, they lose motivation and come down with ‘Senioritis,’ especially in the last quarter. According to Jace MacConnell, the symptoms are ‘not wanting to do work’, ‘begging to graduate and go to college’,  and ‘knowing you have tests to study for but thinking that its senior season so you slack off.’ Jace believes he contracted this illness before Senior year even began. Many Seniors are ready to move on from the same high school routine they have repeated for four years.

Tommy Branconier is ready to graduate but will make the most out of his last quarter. He plans to live in the moment and spend quality time with his friends and family. Cassidy Rodi will treasure these last two months before graduation and wants to live each day to its fullest. She wants to look back on Senior year and remember the great times she had with her friends. She says, “I am grateful for everyone around me. I look back at this year and I am flooded with positive thoughts and memories.” Cassidy is even appreciative of the mistakes she has made because they have placed her on the right path.

Seniors, let’s reflect on our high school experiences and focus on the great times and positive moments. We are all ready to graduate but sometimes we must also live in the moment. That’s the tension in this moment of our lives. Enjoy these last few weeks. Before we know it, our high school experience will be over. Good luck to the Class of 2019!
