Thank You to Our Seniors

A Thank You Note to Our Seniors

With less than a month left of their time at IHA, the Classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021 would like to thank our seniors for their advice, support, and friendship.

To my big sister, thank you for welcoming me to IHA. From playing board games to eating frozen yogurt, you have shown me what it means to feel accepted in a community. Although awkward at first, Big Sister/Little Sister Day made me feel like I belonged and like I was wanted. Thank you for being the one upperclassman I could always go to for advice and support.

To my captain and teammates, thank you for encouraging me to do my best despite any given circumstances. Thank you for trusting me when no one else did because you knew that next time would be better. Thank you for pushing us to a state title because you knew we were capable. Thank you for welcoming me into the family.

To my classmates, thank you for engaging in conversation and giving me tips to help me pass midterms and finals. Thank you for showing me the best way to annotate or tips on how to make the best study guide. Thank you for helping me choose the right classes and for sharing your midterm review when you knew I didn’t have time.

To my club president, thank you for telling me where Mrs. Shutrop keeps the chocolate. I don’t know what I’d do without my locker break Hershey’s. Thank you for showing me the ways of the club, the best way to find information, and where to eat at Georgetown. Thank you for teaching me how to write a position paper and preparing me to win the best delegate award.

To my friend, thank you for reaching out despite the fact that we are in different grades. Thank you for the rides to Starbucks and Panera. From college advice to the best dress for Semi, you helped me make the right decisions.

To all of you, although we may have never crossed paths, thank you for the daily encouragement to know that despite the hundreds of tests and hours of homework I have, I will make it through IHA. Looking at your senior sweater and special Sperry’s, I know that I can and will succeed. The chemistry tests won’t kill me, and I am not going to fail French II. Why do I know this? Because you have conquered it all before.

From your little sisters and freshmen on the varsity team, we thank you for your support.

From the next lead in the musical and the next captain of the volleyball team, we thank you.

You have set an example that will be hard to follow. But we hope that, because of your guidance, we will have the same impact in a few years.

Now that your time is done and you are on to bigger and better things, I and all the girls at IHA wish you luck on your future endeavors. We want you to know that no matter where you go, you always have a home at IHA. You truly do have the whole school on your side.
