This year the Senior Class selected Sarah Weidman ‘17 to give the Senior Farewell. “Welcome, everyone! In case you don’t know, we don’t make the valedictorian speak at graduation. The reason I’m here is because I gave a teaser-trailer speech to my class, and they voted for me to speak on their behalf at graduation. My sample speech was long, full of imagery, memories, and emotion. Tears were shed, and not all of them by me. But once I was chosen, thanks guys...

As we arrived at the threshold of each classroom door, the kids faces lit up with joy and excitement. “They’re back!” shouted many of the kids. We made the most of our time with the kids, and some of us were even...
