Salute To Seniors is a medium for "senior farewells". We invite this year's seniors to tell their stories from the past four years. With the loss of the spring season we hope we can offer a chance to reflect on all the great moments this class did get to experience.
The series will run from May into the summer, please note that there is a large queue of submissions so there may be a wait until final posting.
Currently Accepting Submissions
There are a few options when submitting a senior farewell..
- You can answer the questions below in Q&A format... or...

- You can submit another creative media piece such as a video, piece of art, or another medium. If you do choose this please let us know your plans ahead of time so we can discuss further. Don't want you to create something then not be able to post it due to copyright issues with music or videos dealing with specific meets.
