Senior TributesVictoria Niedbal, managing editorPHOTO FROM VICTORIA NIEDBAL This is senior Victoria Niedbal’s third year on The Lighthouse staff. She plans on majoring in finance at Ramapo College in Mahwah, N.J.June 11, 2020Most of the world has been greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic, which has unexpectedly and drastically impacted my senior year. However, instead of dwelling on what I could have been doing these last few months, I think it’s important to reminisce about the previous three and three-fourths of my high school experience.As a freshman, I wanted to get involved as much as possible in order to get the full experience I had hoped for. I joined multiple clubs such as Future Business Leaders of America and three sports that included cross country, indoor track and outdoor track. Despite sometimes feeling overwhelmed, each was an important part of my time at LHS.Specifically, FBLA allowed me to find my passion for the cutthroat world of business and make unforgettable memories.From traveling to San Antonio, Texas for nationals to meeting people from around the country and state to simply attending monthly lunch meetings, I had the opportunity to find success and complete the experience I wanted to have at LHS. Advisors Mrs. Jankowski and Mrs. Silvelo always kept me calm before competitions and encouraged me to challenge myself within FBLA.I am grateful for all the friendships I have made and feel privileged to have met and been mentored by such amazing teachers and coaches. Although these groups of individuals positively impacted my life, I would not have achieved what I have been able to and would not be who I am today without my supportive family.I am grateful for all the friendships I have made and feel privileged to have met and been mentored by such amazing teachers and coaches.I want to thank The Lighthouse adviser Ms. Pastor for being an incredible role model and teaching me something new every day. Ms. Pastor’s passion for The Lighthouse is contagious, and it is really hard for me to accept that this is the last piece I will ever write for this newspaper. From being a staff writer to an editor to a managing editor, I have grown close to The Lighthouse and am sad to have to part ways with it.Although the college decision-making process has been difficult, I am ready and excited to move on and continue my education as a finance major at Ramapo College in Mahwah, N.J. I will truly miss LHS, especially since my senior year was cut short, but I hope to make up for lost time as I move forward in my life.
