By now, everyone can see that COVID has shaken up the world. For the seniors of 2020 and 2021, many things have been taken away and moved around.

While what’s happening now might make some students want to give up, Everett’s college adviser has an optimistic message for seniors. 

This is temporary! You can still come out of this strong and start your life as an independent adult,” said college adviser Jamie Park. 

There are so many experiences that seniors have and will miss out on. Some of the biggest experiences of high school come from senior year, and these students are very sad about missing them.

“I don’t want to miss out on prom, and walking across the stage has always been one of my dreams,’’ said senior Russia Alexander. 

While most students are sad, some students are taking this experience and enjoying it.

“I like my new way of learning, I’ve always hated getting up and going to school,’’ said Isaiah Garner,” a junior in Dekalb, IL. “If my senior year is going to be like this, I would not have a problem with that.”

Everett has definitely been shaken up. Luckily, there are people that are here to help.

“Email me!,’’ said Park. 

Some students who were hyped about the year have pretty much accepted the fact that we might not get to do senior activities. 

“Whether or not we go back to school, at least I can say I went through it and finished strong,” said senior Jaylah Graham.
