but it’s kinda sad because I enjoyed learning and having somewhere to go every day,” said Maxwell.

Maxwell describes her life now that she is a full-time adult.

“It is pretty nice because I’m making money and taking care of what matters most, my family,” said Maxwell.

Now that she is not in high school, Polanowski has new responsibilities as an adult.

“I really have to focus on taking my college classes, and my assignments. Getting good grades is more important now than ever,” said Polanowski. “ It has taught me responsibility, especially managing my time because I still have to work 40+ hours a week full time, and I go to school full time, so time is something that is truly important to focus on.”

Class of 2017 graduate Tyler Wagner gives the senior class some advice about the school year to follow.

“It is probably one of the hardest years of high school, but at the same time, it is the easiest. It is one of those instances where you just keep moving forward, you’re so close,” said Wagner.

Maxwell also gave some final advice to the underclassmen on their years to follow in high school.
