Countdown to West Orange High School Graduation

May 15, 2014 at 10:16 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - (Editor's Note: Here is another article from one of the West Orange High School Escriptus Honor Society Seniors.)

West Orange High School seniors are approaching a bittersweet time in their lives: graduation. We’ve gone through four years of finals, AP Exams, after school sports, clubs, and required gym classes. Now as we approach the end, we’re moving on to bigger and better things, one of those being college.

“I’m excited for college; I’m going to Rutgers, and although a lot of people from West Orange are going there, I’m sad but ready to meet new people and become a new person” says one senior.

From the University of California, Santa Barbara, to Brigham Young University in Utah, and back to the University of Massachusetts, the graduating class of 2014 is spreading out across the country to pursue their college dreams. A few other schoolsstudents plan to attend are the University of Pittsburgh, Boston College, the University of Connecticut, Syracuse, Bloomfield College, the University of Maryland, Princeton University, University of Miami, Hampton University and many more.        

Teachers and parents are proud of the seniors for persevering through the difficult times to reach this important goal. And while we all may be splitting apart and going our various ways, one senior stated that “I’m moving away from my friends, sure, but I won’t just forget about them, or West Orange. We all talk about leaving but at the end of the day, we’ll all come back eventually”.

Congratulations to the Class of 2014, and good luck to the up and coming seniors; you will be in our shoes before you know it.
