Senior Experience

High school is great, but what happens afterward? Seniors are making important decisions for their future: college, military, or something else. Various Northtown seniors were asked about their high school experiences, and more importantly, what comes next.

“I plan to go to Northwest Missouri State and study art therapy,” senior Shelby Bowman said.

“I want to become a PE teacher,” senior Jeremy Bain said.

“I plan to take over the world by the end of 2012. Laugh, but I’m very serious,”
senior Yonie Manning said.

“My favorite memory was winning prom queen,” Manning said, when asked about her favorite Northtown memory.

According to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, in 2011, approximately 60 percent of Northtown students went to a two or four-year college, about one percent went into the military, and 15 percent went into the workforce. Those numbers are reflected in the responses by this year’s senior class.

Compiling a list of favorite memories can be a difficult task for some students.

“I have too many favorite memories of Northtown. I don’t know where to start,” senior Shannon Hubbard said.

Memories can last forever. They are something to look back on and laugh about, learn from, or forget and move on. What will they miss about Northtown? Some might miss their fellow students.

“I’ll miss being with my junior friends all the time,” Manning said.

Others might miss their teachers.

“I will miss picking on Mr. Nguyen and calling Mr. Jackson dad,” Bowman said.

“I will miss Mrs. DiGregorio,” senior Ethan McFarland said.

“I will miss Mr. Sage’s remarks and jokes,” senior Stajheri Jackson said

There are those who will reflect on what they did or didn’t do.

“I will miss being able to skip classes,” senior Zack Love said

What advise do the members of this senior class give to the underclassmen?

“Don’t procrastinate, be school spirited, get involved, become friends with everybody, and be crazy,” senior Melaina Bixler said.

Student Nick Guadagnano  advises against drug and alcohol use.

No matter what you’ll do or what you’ll miss, high school only comes once in your lifetime. Take advantage of it.
