What is your best memory of senior year?

Nadeem: My best memory of senior year is the last day of classes where we are getting our yearbooks signed. It was a joyous time but it also made me think about all of the wonderful people I’ve met and the lasting friendships that I’ve made throughout high school.

Koshy: My best memory of senior year is the gathering with the whole Class of 2014 outside for the group picture.
