WARNING: Class of 2021’s Bright Futures Ahead!


Allison Marin

Figuring out what to do after high school and deciding on where to go can be by far one of the most stressful tasks on one’s to-do list, but luckily most of our graduating seniors have got it checked off. In the past, seniors were lucky enough to not have to worry about navigating through a pandemic, however these seniors took on the challenge and made it to the end. Now that we’ve gotten through some of the hardest times, the seniors’ futures are looking even brighter.
