Tenille Duessler mentioned that track and softball contained some of her special memories: “Just being in those sports showed me who I wanted to be,” she explained. “I met my best friends through track; otherwise, I would have never have talked to them.”
Mackenzy Vedder said that going to state this year for volleyball was such a great experience, and Beth Schenck mentioned that meddling in the 4x800 in track her freshman year was one of her fondest memories.
Aside from sports, many students have memories from the classes or other extracurricular activities they participated in throughout the years. Alex Madden explained, “One time, Mr. Tucker told me I was funny. I haven’t lived it down since. That man is my inspiration.”
Erica Kotthoff mentioned, “Getting inducted into National Honor Society has encouraged me to continue to better in school and reach for my dreams.”
Karissa Durbin reflected, “Cheerleading is one of my fondest memories. I’ll never forget all the friends I made during Cheer and all the amazing experiences I’ve had supporting our school at all the basketball games.”
Jenny Gallardo explained, “Cheerleading and going to state for basketball are my fondest memories of high school.”
Dean Lockhart mentioned, “being welcomed back at New Haven after the three years I was at Borgia” as one of his best memories.
Also, each year, the senior class at New Haven High is given the opportunity to go on Senior Trip. From visiting the Biltmore to gazing out over New York City from the Empire State Building, almost every senior that went on senior trip had a memory to share from their once-in-a-lifetime experience. Patricia Noelke mentioned, “I got to spend time with the seniors on senior trip before we graduate.” Mackenzy Vedder also said that senior trip was one of her best memories because she enjoyed spending a week with her class.
As one chapter ends and another begins, the senior class of 2015 will have memories that they cherish forever.
