This is the Class of 2017’s final year at high school. It was a good run, but now they’re moving up into college and the real world.
Now it is time for them to move on; some of them are doing different things, and going different places. For instance, Bryan Gudka is going to go up to Milwaukee to play football at Concordia College. That is a big step from being in a small town like Keenesburg, to a big town like that.
There’s also two students, Jenee Laping and Katie Kreutzer, that are going to the University of Arizona. “I can’t wait to be in a new environment like Arizona,” Jenee said. Others, like Lance Post, have more short term plans. “That Friday, after seniors get out,” he said, “I’m going to the gym.” Lance is also planning on working for Vestas after high school.
This senior class was very close to one another. Now that everyone is leaving to different places, it’s just going to mean even more memories for them. These last couple days in their high school career are going to be emotional, because you only go through high school once. It’s going to be hard for some to leave their school where it all started. “It might be easy to leave,” Gage Hesse said, “but it’s going to be hard to not come back.”
