Congratulations Seniors: Class of ‘21 College Bound

By Aideth Palacios

Hello John Glenn Staff and Students. On behalf of the Shoemaker Bugle, I would like to take a moment to congratulate the class of 2021! We have made it through the first semester with all this chaos and we have entered a new phase in our lives. We are all taking a new step towards adulthood, and I’m honored to celebrate this special moment with all of you.

As we all know, college acceptance letters have been rolling in and I would like to say that we are extremely proud of everyone! Our class has been stolen of a year that should’ve been filled with memories and happiness, but we have managed to get through it. We are strong, we are powerful, and we will succeed!

Many do not understand the struggles we are going through or have faced this year just to get to where we are right now. But I place myself in all your shoes, seniors, to tell you that I understand. I understand the struggle–which is why I am here today to congratulate you all and honor your hard work. No matter what path you have decided to take, we honor your hard work and respect your decisions. Many have chosen to go straight to work, or to a community college, private university, vocational school, Cal State University or a UC, and we are very proud of you for all your accomplishments.

I would like to name some students that have shared with us their college acceptances and to once again honor their hard work and dedication this year.
