Alumni Adventures

Ready to get their toes in the sand, sled down the slopes, or reminisce on their childhood, the seniors are excited for one last vacation before they take on college life. Senior trips are the last chance for the class of 2018 to go out and have fun with friends or family before they take their next big step in life. As they begin to pack for their last high school memories, they prepare for final farewells.

Senior Emily Schulte will be visiting sunny Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Family and friends by her side, she is going to be soaking up the sun as long as she can. Heading to an all exclusive resort, she’ll get beach side service all week long.

“I’m most excited to get my tan on,” Schulte Said. “My family is really fun, and I’m so hyped to be spending my time laying on a beach with my cousin.”

Traveling to Quebec City, senior Peyton McNamee will be using her few days of pre-college freedom to go skiing. McNamee will be heading down the slopes along with her family.

“We went in February of my freshmen year, but my dad and I had to leave early and didn’t get to see a lot of the things my mom and brother did,” McNamee said. “I’m really excited to go back and see all the stuff I didn’t get a chance to last time.”

Senior Grace Nieland is going back to her roots in Wichita, Kansas. Soon after graduation, she will be surrounded by friends and family. Reminiscing on old times is what Nieland needs before her next big step to college.

“I used to live there in elementary school and have a bunch of good memories there, so I’m going back to meet up with old friends,” Nieland said. “I can’t wait to just re-experience the city because I love the feel of Wichita.”

As the end of the school year draws closer, the seniors prepare for their final goodbyes. Despite the heartache some might have from leaving their loved ones, these seniors decide to end on a good note. From the beach to snowy mountains and everywhere in between, the seniors hold precious memories to carry with them through college.
