Well, here it is: my last year at LHS, my last hurrah. I can’t believe how quickly the years have gone by, and now the end of my senior year has arrived. I’m going to miss the sports games, the school events and, of course, writing for The Lighthouse. I enjoyed every single moment of my time in high school and will miss it dearly.
I remember the first day of my freshman year. I was scared of what high school had in store, but now I’m sad to leave it. I’m going to miss all the classmates I have befriended, and I hope to keep in touch with them. I’m going to miss the teachers and staff who were always so kind and helpful. Most of all, I’m going to miss reporting for The Lighthouse, as it truly helped me become a better writer and gain confidence.
We’re all like one big family, and being a Golden Bear was definitely one of the best experiences ever, but now I’ll be going from a Golden Bear to a Golden Falcon.
Being a webmaster for The Lighthouse was also a great experience and helped me improve my tech skills. It has been a big responsibility, and at first it was a lot to take on, but as I got used to it, I came to enjoy my role. Working alongside co-webmaster Julia Glowacki, we created a bond and helped each other out if needed. I hope the next webmasters enjoy their role on the editorial board as much as I did.
Finally, I’ll miss The Lighthouse because it helped me create bonds I would have never developed otherwise.
It was wonderful getting to work so closely with my editor group, getting to know each other and learning new writing techniques along the way.
I’m still in shock that high school went by so quickly. In the fall, I’ll be attending Felician University in Rutherford as a nursing major, and just thinking about how close I am to starting adult life is so scary. Being a nursing major is intimidating, but the medical field has always interested me, and I am very passionate about the career I’ll be embarking upon. I enjoy helping people, so I’m confident that I will be successful.
Lyndhurst was a great place to grow up because everyone knows each other in this town. I just love living in a community that works so well together. We’re all like one big family, and being a Golden Bear was definitely one of the best experiences ever, but now I’ll be going from a Golden Bear to a Golden Falcon.
Well LHS, I’m going to miss you and The Lighthouse, but it’s time for me to graduate and move on. I hope that through my professional endeavors I’ll make positive contributions to the world, and I’ll be able to look back and say I made my teachers and hometown proud. This community helped me get to where I am today, and I will be forever grateful.
