If seniors haven’t already started filling out scholarships, applied for college and or filled out the FAFSA, then they're probably too late. Many students at this time of the year spend hours upon hours filling out scholarships and coming up with different ways to make themselves look better, sound better than the rest of the students filling out the same scholarships. The toughest part about filling out scholarships said Trevor Smith, “is writing and going through the long gruesome essays about what you want to do about with your life”. But in reality, if one knows what he or she is going to do in life, one needs to consider a backup plan because the chances of getting and achieving exactly what one wants in this world are quite slim.
Another crazy event that seniors have to plan for is graduating! Trying to figure out what food to serve at the party and what shoes to wear at commencement, is all new and can be quite scary for seniors. Carly Johnston’s biggest fear with her graduation party is the whole thing, including the weather, the food, and the décor. It’s all new and very nerve wracking.
As the final days of the school year come to an end here in Audubon, the toughest part is not the grad parties, the scholarships, or even the classes, it’s leaving behind the days and the memories the class of 2015 has shared, which has molded and shaped their lives. “The memories we’ve shared, the times we’ve had together, they will stay with us always – goodbye is not forever.” - Unknown (AHS 2015 Senior quote)
