My 2021 Senior Farewell


Karly Wangler, Staff Writer

Wow, is it really my senior year? It feels like I am still walking in on my first day with not a clue of what to do. But here it is, the end of my high school career. Sadly, it is time to say farewell. It has been a crazy, memory-filled year that is coming to an end way too soon. Many opportunities were handed to me this year, and I am beyond grateful that becoming part of the SPUD was one of them.

This was my first year joining the SPUD, which unfortunately is my last year as well. I wish I would have chosen to take this class sooner! The girls that are a part of this class are beyond amazing. I am so thankful to have gotten to know each one of them. They have helped me to further my writing skills, which helps me for my future career in college. It seems like this year has gone by so fast. I blinked and it was all over. The SPUD was an opportunity that I will cherish forever.

Walking in on the first day of my freshman year, I remember being so lost. Little did I know that freshman year was going to be my easiest year of high school. I always could not wait until my senior year, when I would be officially done with high school and move on to college. Then sophomore year rolled around, and I participated in many activities. I went to all of the sporting events and really started to understand what being a part of AHS was all about. At the time, I did not realize that it was all flying by. Then came junior year, and honestly that was my hardest year of high school. There were so many things to do and classes to take, which in return made time go by even faster. It seems like yesterday, I was walking in on my first day of senior year. My senior year was perfect. It was everything I had ever asked for.

Through these last tear-filled days, I have realized a couple things: never take anything in high school for granted, because it is some of the best times in your life; and nobody thinks about it being their most important chapter in life at the time, but it truly is. I am thankful for all of the memories that Alliance High School has given me, and I am ready to move on to my next adventure. Thank you to the SPUD for granting me with opportunities I otherwise would have never had, and for friendships that will last a lifetime. This is Karly Wangler, senior staff writer, signing off!
