The Class of 2017’s four years at Academy are officially drawing to a close. As their final day rapidly approach, the underclassmen take a moment to reflect on their departure:

Sophomore Julianna Jett says, “I really respected the senior class because they are not egotistical, and they respected the underclassmen as well which was nice. They are finishing out strong.”

Junior Abbey Bennett says, “I’m going to miss them at Crew practice.”

Freshman Miranda Gonzales says, “The school will not be the same about them. They’re usually so funny and make the mood of the school upbeat.”

Sophomore Olivia Fernandez says, “I appreciate that they haven’t created rivalries with the other grades, and they are also very creative.”

Freshman Caroline Lamoureux says, “I’m really going to miss the class of 2017. I loved their enthusiasm and kindness. The best moment by far was the entire beach ball story; that was legendary. Not one senior I’ve met throughout the year was rude or mean, honestly. The seniors are some of the kindest and friendliest people I’ve ever met. This class is extremely talented and I’m so excited to see where everyone ends up. They were great leaders. I thank them for being amazing.”

Lamoureux says, “I’m especially going to miss the seniors from the soccer team, from the Mississippi mission trip, from Theatre Club, from Student Council, and all the seniors I’ve met randomly in the halls.” Photo Credit: Caroline Lamoureux (used with permission)

Junior Emily Venezia says, “I’m going to miss their ideas in law class.”

Freshman Olivia Alvarez says, “There will be no beach balls out the fourth floor window; they will be dearly missed.”

Sophomore Colleen Duffy says, “The Class of 2017 is really chill and they’re all really close. I feel like next year is going to be very different without them. I’m definitely going to miss this class.”

Junior Christina Alarcon says, “Some of my best friends are seniors and it’s going to be hard not seeing them everyday. The Class of 2017 was unique in every way. They have always come together to support each other. To me, they have set a standard for the senior class that my grade should strive to live up to and surpass. They represent the sisterhood, and are good examples for the whole school. The Class of 2017 will definitely be missed by all who come after them.”

Alarcon says, “The seniors definitely know how to have a good time, and they’ve made the most out of their senior year.” Photo Credit: Valerie White/Achona Online
