What are they saying this year? Do you know who said what? Here are some excerpts from this year’s seniors’ last say, which can be found — in context — in the Senior Supplement, available in the May 30 edition of the Yellow Springs News:

“…I’m going to miss the teachers, the staff, my peers, the coaches and everyone that helped me over the years..”

“…In fact, that might be the saving grace of senior year: the future is teeming with possibility, but the past will always be preserved in my heart.”

“In Yellow Springs and its schools, I’ve learned the importance of trying to understand things that are new to me, instead of just letting someone else explain it, and that’s valuable to me.”

“I plan on enjoying my life, slowly forgetting about this place. … How could I see 10 years in the future?”

“There are few other places in the United States that preserve and support small businesses and nature quite like this town.”

“Growing up, it all seems so one-sided / Opinions all provided / The future pre-decided / Detached and subdivided / In the mass-production zone.”

“Most people think going to a school where your graduating class is less than 70 people sounds crazy.”

“Being at Yellow Springs from the start would’ve benefitted me a lot because of the open-minded, student-driven environment that is promoted so strongly here.”

“The universe of Yellow Springs shows me the importance of life, which is love. Receiving love from this community was one the best gifts ever.”

“While there were times that I wondered how it would feel to be part of a bigger school, every day I was proud to be a part of Yellow Springs’ schools.”

“I decided to join the Community Band as the back-up tuba while still playing the bass. [It] was really complicated, but I got out so many of my frustrations in music; it’s definitely one of my top memories.”

“In this school, you actually worked with other people, so I was a little uncomfortable at first, but I got used to it.”

“… I can honestly say that I love it here … The people are nicer, the schools are better and I’m able to be me without being afraid of others. So thank you, Yellow Springs, for the warmest welcome I’ve ever had.”
