    Whether it be a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior, everyone is a little skeptical for the next step in their academic career.

    In a few short weeks, the Pocomoke High School senior class will be leaving to go to a different variety of colleges or work fields. Some are scared, some are ready to leave, but the date is approaching fast and the time of being a high school senior will be over.

    Najee Nelson weighed in on how he felt about becoming a senior next year and said, “I am kind of excited, but I am kind of ready to leave. I am just ready to become a senior already.”

    Another junior Pocomoke High School student, Victoria Lenda said, “I cannot wait to graduate. I’m not afraid about becoming a senior. There is really no reason why I should be. I am just ready to graduate.”

    The juniors may think that they are ready for best year of their entire high school, but other seniors are not convinced.

    Tatyana Waters a Pocomoke High School senior stated, “The juniors are ready for the physical aspect but they are not ready mentally.”

    Senior year is one of the toughest years. Students have to decide on a college, military branch, or a field of work. Between filling out scholarships, having jobs, playing sports, and having a social life, the year easily flies by fast and can get stressful.

    Even though the juniors are ready to get their senior year started, Natalie Crisafulli, another Pocomoke High School senior wants the juniors to know that they need to live in the moment.

    “Live your senior year up. Do not wish any time away, because once it is gone, it’s gone. Stay on task and put forth the effort, it’s all worth it in the end.”
