“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.”

The class of 2024 is only less than a month away before getting out, which is approaching fairly quickly.

Major events and decisions are coming up for seniors like deciding your career, deciding between colleges, graduation, and open houses.

Transitioning from high school to the real world can be difficult for many students. Planning and careful thought can help lessen some of that unnecessary stress.

When speaking to some seniors about their feelings about the upcoming months, most are excited to start living out their dreams.

Senior, Celestina Ascencio, has big plans for the future and will attend a university in the fall.

Ascencio has been taking advanced math classes since middle school and has been in electrical wiring at Genesee Career Institute, known as GCI, for the past 2 years.

Ascencio stated, “I am beyond excited for all of my new adventures to come from moving into my freshmen dorm to just the overall change in the fall. I plan to attend Central University to become an electrical engineer.”

Moving away from family and friends can be tough for everyone but staying positive will help make the transition easier.

Reporters then spoke to senior, Elizabeth Zafiroff who stated, “my plan by the end of June is to start working more. During the summer I’m going to do night classes at Mott for nursing. I’ve always wanted to be a nurse and I’m still a bit worried about working too.”

Deciding whether or not to leave or stay close to home is a huge stress for many students.

When speaking to senior, Austin Potter, he said, “I’m not sure what I want to do exactly, but I’ve been accepted to many colleges. I just haven’t decided if I should move out of state or stay close. Both are pretty good options, however, I’m leaning more into the freedom of going out on my own, but I’ll miss my dad”.

With only one month left for seniors at the high school, we can’t help but remember the days that passed. These days will soon enough just be memories. Don’t forget to live in the moment and soak up the time spent with everyone while we still can.
