First Senior Class Applauds the Future

Geoff Vincent leaves his handprint on the wall commemorating our first senior class.

A large part of being in the first graduating class of CHS means leaving legacies for future Cavaliers. One of those legacies is currently underway in the upper F hallway. All current senior Cavaliers were invited to leave their mark on CHS with their handprints on a beautiful mural created by Senior parent Mrs. Susan Johnson. The words “First Graduating Class – Cuthbertson High School – Applauds the Future” are hand-painted along with the logo of Cavalier crossed swords. Surrounding this are the golden handprints and signatures of our 175 seniors.

The seniors were excited to see the project come to life. “It’s fun! It’s a good way to remember the first senior class!” said Joanne Sabenicio. “It makes me feel accomplished,” said Katelyn Sears. “It’s a great commemorative monument to us and I’m greatly satisfied by this,” commented Paul Sileo. “I think the wall adds to a good learning atmosphere because it brings individuality and helps future students reach their goals of graduating high school and becoming successful individuals,” said Miguel Pereda.

Seniors lined up in the hallway to watch the project unfold and have their turn at having their hands swiped with paint by Mrs. Johnson. This is just one of many activities the seniors will get to participate in as their final high school semester progresses. The CHS Senior class wishes to express appreciation to Mrs. Johnson for her artistry and to the whole Senior Events Committee who came up with the idea. Nicolette Pfaff summed it up with, “This is a special way to remember the first senior class!”
