2024’s Last Ride

Mr Greg Cava

Another year has come, and now it is the Class of 2024 to take their last go at it here at Bishop Gorman High School.

The class of 2024 kick-started the year at the Senior Sunrise on Tuesday around 7:15 a.m. Our Seniors gathered in the Commons for breakfast and a chance to catch up with old companions. All while sporting their new Senior Shirts creatively designed by ASG. The shirts give reference to the Nickelodeon Television show “SpongeBob SquarePants” as they display a sense of nostalgia for all those who grew up on the show under the sea.

Walking around the Commons, conversations of the new school year were vibrant, accompanied by reminiscing talks of the past years at the school. The journey has been rough for the class of 2024, thanks to the notorious pandemic that robbed nearly two years of normal academics for this graduating class. It was strange. Students recall the days where social distancing was at place and what defined a person was their eyes and muffled voices through the masks.

As we look toward the present day, it seems that the worst has now past, and the thrilling process of college applications and life planning after graduating waits ahead.

The consensus as of now though: fearful yet exciting.

“It’s actually really exciting because not only do you get that sense of accomplishment that you nearly finished all four years but you also get to help the underclassmen and you watch them grow up,” states Senior Isabelle Isla.

As Seniors, they have become the new leaders of the school. They possess the highest responsibility as Senior Mason Baver says, “I feel more confident walking around the halls because I am a part of the oldest class and the most experienced. With this experience I hope to lead by example.”

Almost all Seniors could agree that “being a senior gives a sense of relief and accomplishment,” so Baver claims.

For the Class of 2024, there has been much learned and experienced. For now, they can only take it one day at a time because graduation lurks around the corner sooner than expected.

Later on in the week, the seniors await to run out at the first assembly of the year, Senior Jacob McCormick reflects on his past four years, “Bishop Gorman has given me the knowledge to pursue my goals and the confidence to chase my dreams. As a freshman, I was intimidated by the mystique of Bishop Gorman and now I consider it family and call it home.” He then joined the rest of the senior crowd through the Commons for the traditional runout.
