Seniors Reflection

Seniors are in their fourth and final year of high school and begin to reflect on their time at SHS

Seniors reflect back on their past selves. “I love the sports games I went to.” Seth Andries says.

Seniors here at Summerville High School reflected on their last four years of high school and shared with Beyond the Cave what they will remember most about their high school years. 

Seniors evolve over the years based on interests, appearances, social groups, and a few select seniors took a moment to share with BTC what they will remember the most. They also shared advice they would give themselves if they were to do it all over again. 

Joshua Kepener, senior, argued that trivial things, when looking back, are not as important as they may seem at the moment. 

He shared that, “Nothing matters as much as you think.”

Ellery Stewart, senior, commented on fun facts she will remember from high school. 

“The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell– has anyone said that already?” 

In each interview with varied senior interviewees, seniors responded differently to the question of what knowledge they have learned in the past four years. Ranging from maturing into a better person, to learning an educational fact that has stuck for all those years. 

Through change, there is reflection. Reflection can be seen through past memories and regrets that are remembered now. 

Senior Arian Schnabet reflected on a unique past memory that occurred fairly recently.

 “The one thing I remember is snapping my ankle 30 times during sophomore year of basketball.” 

Juan Valera recalled a memory that taught him a lesson.

“I can remember picking up a hot piece of metal in manufacturing class, burnt my finger—yeah it hurt.” 

Lukas Soto stated a regret from one of his high school years. 

“The one thing I remember is not wrestling my sophomore year… I kind of regret it.

From regrets, to seemingly unimportant random facts, to remembering what matters the most, seniors reflect on their time at SHS.

However, the best way to look at reflection is from an outsider’s perspective. Mrs. Soto shared her thoughts on the changes she’s seen in current seniors over the years. 

“The biggest change I’ve seen is seeing them taking responsibility for what they do,” commented ASB advisor and Leadership teacher, Mrs. Soto.

“The biggest change I’ve seen is seeing them taking responsibility for what they do,” commented ASB Advisor and Leadership teacher, Mrs. Soto. 

Mrs. Soto has met and worked with a plethora of different students over the years, and the biggest change she has seen is the students taking responsibility for their actions, which can be viewed as a positive change. 

Some seniors would do it all over again if given the opportunity—others? They are counting down the days until graduation.
