As the 2021-2022 school year comes to an end, we would all like to thank our four senior journalists: Daylun Armstrong, Alaysia Curry, Tyler Elzholz, and Laila Schwin. They have all been enrolled in Publications for two years and have made an amazing and lasting impact.
Since joining Publications here at BHS (piloted in the 2019-2020 school year), these four seniors have done an amazing job creating and writing new articles, being great role models to the underclassmen writers, and taking pride in their work. They all showed what true Hurricane Pride is about, and we know that our avid newspaper followers agree.
Senior #1: Daylun Armstrong
*Favorite BHS Memory: “Honestly, there have been too many to count, but I think that as I reflect on everything, I just remember all the amazing teachers and classmates and being able to have deep, meaningful conversations or just talking about funny things and day-to-day life. I think that is also something that I’m going to miss, too, about BHS. I felt so comfortable here, I could be myself, and people actually cared and listened to my thoughts or my millions upon millions of questions.”
*Advice for Next Year’s Seniors (Class of 2023): “Just be your most authentic self and stand up for the things you believe in. I know that on a day-to-day basis, school can seem tiring and stressful, and don’t get me wrong, it is, but there are so many amazing memories and people you will meet that can make your time here so amazing! This definitely is a cliche, but high school goes by quickly, so make sure to make the most of every moment. Don’t worry so much, and just enjoy life.”
*Plans after Graduation: “I plan on attending Cleveland State University to major in Psychology.”
Senior #2: Alaysia Curry
*Favorite BHS Memory: “Painting the rock. It was fun, although I twisted my ankle.”
*Advice for Next Year’s Seniors (Class of 2023): “Never allow others to change your opinion of yourself. Nobody is the same as anybody else, and nobody is perfect, so don’t think you have to be. Always stick out and never blend in because when you stick out, you will shine.”
*Plans after Graduation: “I will be attending Tri-C for an Associate’s degree in Film and Media. Then, I will be transferring to Southern New Hampshire University for a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing.”
Senior #3: Tyler Elzholz
*Favorite BHS Memory: “Senior prank because our whole class had a good time before we took the stage.”
*Advice for Next Year’s Seniors (Class of 2023): “Enjoy it. Enjoy the time you have left because it goes by quickly. Whatever feuds you have, leave them in the past, so they don’t ruin your final year.”
*Plans after Graduation: “I will be attending The University of Akron for Business Management with the intention of receiving a Master’s degree, too.”
Senior #4: Laila Schwin
*Favorite BHS Memory: “My favorite memory would have to be walking back into the school on the first day of my senior year after not being inside for a whole year, realizing everything wasn’t so different anymore. I was glad to be here again, and everything would finally be okay.”
*Advice for Next Year’s Seniors (Class of 2023): “The first one would obviously be to enjoy it while it lasts because it goes way quicker than you think. Also, you need to LEARN HOW to study. Trust me, it’s worth it.”
*Plans after Graduation: “I’m going to finish the second half of my Associate’s degree at Tri-C, and from there, I’m going to try and figure it out.”
We hope each of you goes on to accomplish amazing things in life. No matter what your plans are, remember to reach for the stars. The future is yours, so make sure you work hard, accomplish what you want to, and be confident in yourself. Never get in your own way when it comes to happiness and success.
So one last time, thank you for being terrific writers, great leaders, and most importantly, better people. You all have made Hurricane Nation extremely proud!
