As the class of 2018 prepares to wrap up their four year careers here at Christopher Columbus High School, one thing is certain, they will all miss there time here at the school.
“I can not believe its over. It feels like just yesterday I was roaming the hallways as a puny freshman,” said senior Kevin Miller who plans on attending the University of Central Florida in the fall.
For many of these students, Columbus has become a second home, a place where they could recreate themselves and find out who they really are. The school has provided countless opportunities for these students to succeed through extra curricular activities and challenging courses.
One way a student has flourished at Columbus is through athletics.
“Playing baseball at Columbus has definitely been one of the best experiences of my life, I have formed bonds that will last forever,” said Columbus baseball player Matt Alfonso.
Alfonso was a part of two state championship teams here at Columbus, noting how he enjoyed many successes on the baseball field. Alfonso not only excels on the field but in the classroom as well. Alfonso thanked one of his favorite teachers Katie Essig for furthering his education.
“I’m so grateful for all the valuable things Mrs. Essig has taught me in the classroom,” said Alfonso.
These Christopher Columbus High School students will never forget the memories they created and will forever hold the school’s spirit in their hearts.
