One Last Time for the Class of 2022

   One last time, the Senior Class Cabinet held a meeting in C310, Ms. Alison Peda’s room. The meeting was after school Friday on May 13.

   “At the meeting on May 13, we did a quick overview of the important dates for seniors as we finish off the rest of the year.  We also asked members who were able to stay after to write thank you notes to the adults who chaperoned at the Senior Banquet,” Kimberly Hestermann (12) said. 

   Another topic discussed at the meeting was the class gift. The officers and sponsors decided to make monetary contributions to the Class of 2025, Class of 2026, Phil’s Friends and Uni Traveling Library. 

   “I like that the class gift is centered around helping the community and the school. It is nice to be able to leave the underclassmen with more funds to enjoy the rest of their high school experience,” Clarissa Moreno (12) said. 

   This last ever class cabinet meeting for the Class of 2022 signifies an end to a club where many members spend all four years of their high school career. Saying goodbye to that chapter can be difficult for some like Hestermann. 

“This last class cabinet meeting was bittersweet.  I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone accomplishes in their future endeavors, but it’s hard to say goodbye to something you’ve been involved with for so many years,” Hestermann said.

   Though the meeting marked the end of a chapter, memories were made throughout the years. Moreno describes a memory that defines her class cabinet experience. 

   “My favorite memory from the class cabinet was helping out with the class of 2021’s prom. It felt great to be able to give the class of ‘21 a high school experience that so many were not able to get that year,” Moreno said. 

   Service was a big part of the activities that the Class of 2022 implemented into the class cabinet. 2022 Class President Kimberly Hestermann gives advice to incoming freshmen. 

   “I would tell prospective underclassmen who may join the class cabinet to just join.  It’s a great way to get involved with the school, there’s leadership opportunities, and you get to be a part of planning events at the school which is really rewarding and fun,” Hestermann said.
