From Former To Future Eagles

It’s that time of year. Seniors are leaving and, soon enough, new freshman will be swarming the halls come September. The faces that we will soon miss will be replaced.

After stampeding through their first year of school at Trumbull High, some freshmen offer words of encouragement and advice to upcoming high schoolers:“Don’t be worried, you’ll naturally learn the school over the course of a few weeks,” says Trumbull High track sensation Joe Gregory (‘21).

Learning the school may seem like a task that you may never accomplish, however once you start going to class, you will quickly learn and know the school like the back of your hand.

One student, Gregory Manz (‘19), believes that, “It is tremendously helpful to print out a map of Trumbull High for the first couple of days each year in order to learn the location of your classes.”

This piece of advice is one of the essentials for every successful freshman. With a map in your grasp, you no longer have to worry about being late to your classes or just simply getting lost.

Another student gives an additional piece of encouragement to incoming freshman. “Your classes may seem difficult at first, but you’ll get used to it. Just stick with the work and eventually you’ll adjust”.

This student, Cameron Holmes (‘19), shares a piece of his experience culminating from his first year of high school. He knows that most people will struggle at first, but Holmes also looks to inform these students that, eventually, everyone will adjust to their new environment.

Of course, there is nothing better than a few words of wisdom from a few outgoing seniors. These two seniors leave with a pair of philosophical pieces of advice for high schoolers:
“Make the most of your time in high school. It goes by really fast and it’s important to take time to appreciate the people who make the whole experience great.”

Senior Beau DeMelo shares this advice with hopes that people can take and use it to make high school some of the best years of their lives.

DeMelo knows that most students will take high school for granted as he once had; however, he now realizes that you should cherish every moment you have as as student.

“Get involved and find things you really enjoy. School should be about more than just academics.”

Matt ‘Seuch’ Seuch (‘18) has learned through his experience of high school that many students may go through their years just focused on the academic aspect of school, but they are simply missing out on being involved in the high school atmosphere and community. “In order to achieve the full experience of high school you should be involved in an activity that you hold dear. Whether it be baseball, soccer, chess club, or the Eagle’s Eye newspaper, part of high school is being a part of the community.”
