Today is the last full day of school for the Class of 2018. Many of us have mixed emotions as we have our yearbooks signed, turn in our final high school essays, and complete our final presentations and tests at BHS. As a class we celebrate our accomplishments, reflect on what our legacy at BHS will be, and throw papers in the air to celebrate the completion of what for many of us has been the greatest four years of our lives. Today, I reflect on all the great moments of the past four years.
My top three favorite moments at BHS are taking home the 5th-place trophy at State last year with the boys’ basketball team. It was an amazing run to win the Metro League title and then to go beat Westview for the fourth time in the same season before taking home the 5th place trophy.
Another of my favorite memories was traveling to New York City with the Social Media Team. Putting the stuff you learn in the classroom into real world perspective is a great experience and I had a lot of fun learning outside of the classroom environment.
Senior Prom is a night to remember. For most it is a one time experience, so enjoy it. For me this was a senior memory for the books. You can ask a girl and go with them or you can go with friends, but you only get one Senior Prom, so enjoy it. Enjoy being with your high school friends for one last school dance.
I’ll conclude this blog with a piece of advice for every Beaverton student; current or incoming. Enjoy the time you have at Beaverton. Being a Beaver is a special thing, and the time goes by so fast. Join a club or a team and find a way to be involved. Go to dances because you can. Enjoy this time while it lasts, cause believe it or not, it doesn’t last long.
