Hello All! A few announcements to get us through the next week…But first off, I want to tell you about a convo I had with a certain professor who said to me: Prof: “I told Dr. _____, that shes really going to enjoy having your class as seniors Me: “Oh? Why is that?” Prof: “Because, you guys just have an overall great attitude. You work together and help each other and at the same time care about the work you’re doing. The seniors now are all loners, and the class below you…well, let’s just say they’re going to be very clingy.” Wow guys! WHAT an HONOR to have that reputation going into senior year. That speaks VOLUMES of how we have presented ourselves this past year. Despite the small disagreements we may have among ourselves, its important to remember the CORE of our class. CLASS PRIDE.…CIVILITY towards each...
