To Josh Cummins I leave my (extremely) limited free-styling skills, someone else to ask if you’re down to chill, and a great plumber. To Mason Bishop and Mia DiPaolo I leave the ski trip.

 If you were able to get to this point with out the blurred vision of your tears, I commend you. Speaking from personal opinion, I can not thank the student body enough for what you all have done for me. Writing my will (Jack Niesse) made me realize just how much I loved this place. I don’t think I would have wanted it any other way. I have loved every single minute of this, even when I was crying begging my parents to let me skip. If you ever think you can’t get through it, you can. One day after you got through it, you will back and say,”WOW I’m going to miss this place”. I think I can say this from the whole class of 2018, THANK YOU. Just know your time will be here quicker than you though, so let loose a little and take it all in because it will be finished in the blink of an eye.
