As the school year comes to a bittersweet end, we remember the seniors most. They have proved themselves a strong and spirited class. The St. Joe halls will certainly never be the same without the Class of 2018. As we say our final farewells we must also remember to congratulate them on the journeys they are about to embark. Many of them eagerly await exploring the new world of college. They will have the opportunity to grow in independence and branch out to meet new people, explore new places, and have new experiences.

Some seniors were asked to reflect on their time at St. Joe and report what they will miss most about St. Joe. They responded with eager and anticipation for the future.

Emily Kemp, who will be attending Truman State, says, “I’m excited to branch out and meet a bunch of new people at Truman! I’m also excited for a wider variety of opportunities in my classes and extracurriculars. I’m gonna miss the size and strength of the SJA community. We’re all always there for each other and I’m gonna miss that atmosphere when I leave.”

What I will miss most about St. Joe is the camaraderie and atmosphere of sisterhood of ‘Not I but We.’ ”

Maggie Wallisch, who will be attending the University of Central Missouri, replied, “What I am most looking forward to in college is the independence I will get. What I will miss most about St. Joe is the camaraderie and atmosphere of sisterhood of ‘Not I but We.’ I will also miss my friends that I have made and the joy they bring to me each and every day.”

Finally, Claire Shackleford, who will be attending the University of Chicago, said, “I am looking forward to meeting new friends from all over the country and the world! I will miss being able to walk the halls every day seeing all of my friends and teachers wave and smile as we pass by each other.”

Overall, they are looking forward to their new lives in college but not forgetting what St. Joe means to them. Hopefully, they will carry their St. Joe experiences wherever they go and continue to live out our school values.
