Senior Quotes in regards to the Close of their High School Career
We are in the midst of our senior Falcons last week at Northwood High School. Over the course of the past four years, our Class of 2022 has flourished into amazing young adults that will no doubt contribute in magnificent ways to the world. Tomorrow, Northwood’s seniors will travel to Donnie Bickham Middle School as well as Herndon Magnet School to reflect and revisit their pasts selves. Friday is the annual Senior Picnic and the last day of school for our senior Falcons. As the sun sets on our senior’s high school experience, it is imperative to take time for seniors to define their high school career with a quote.

Kayleigh Carman, NHS’s Varisity Cheer Captain, references season 2, episode 10 of the Office by asserting “Presents are the best way to show how much you care.

Dakotah Porter, Captain of the Varsity Soccer Team at Northwood High School, spent his highschool career being scrutinized for his random thoughts; AP English teacher, Melissa Fisher, told him to wait six minutes before he says something.

Miss Tropicana Rose herself, Lucrezia Tomassetti, advises her fellow peers to “not follow where the path may lead,” but to “Go instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.” Her quote offers a great way to live life and shows the motivation that inspires Lu’s self made success.
Maria Anzola, a Venezualan foreign exchange student who has emerged herself in many Northwood High School sports and organizations, expresses an innate focus on “living life and letting life do its own thing, but always remembering to help others along the great path of life.” As a senior in her first and only year of enrollment at Northwood, Maria has excelled in helping her fellow peers and NHS staff, too. Her quote is the epitome of her character.
Finally, Senior Class President and NHS Student Council co-president, Nilah Pollard, suggests to “begin with the end in mind.” Her goal oriented advice has marked her life and achievements, and she desires for other Northwood Falcons to live by the advice that guided her through her highschool career.
The Northwood Community will forever miss the Class of 2022, and the words and actions of these seniors will be forever ingrained within Northwood High School.
