Times are changing for the seniors, and many have already begun applying to college and getting acceptance letters. Setting up a ladder to climb to the top, the seniors are driving into their futures swiftly savoring the fun times, before heading out.
Evan Boyle, senior, committed to Georgia Tech for baseball as sophomore. Before Georgia Tech he was scouted by Duke University and Louisiana State University.
“It’s pretty exciting because I’ve been wanting to go there and I get to live in the big city and it’s close to home, so it’s good in all worlds I guess you could say,” Boyle said.
Looking back on his years in high school, there isn’t a thing he would change with school or on the baseball diamond.
“I don’t think I’d re-do anything honestly.
Not only is he preparing for college, but others like Shailynn Rice, senior, are too. She has committed to Kennesaw State University and will be majoring in Psychology.
Excited for graduation and setting off for her new school, she elaborates on reasons for choosing Kennesaw State University.
“I considered Augusta and the University of North Georgia, but Kennesaw State University stood out for three reasons. Their resources and tools have recently been updated, their environment is wonderful, I love the people and there’s lots to do,” Rice said.
Since the seniors time here at Ola is ending quickly, many are looking back at the friends they’ve made and if they will keep in touch with them in the next few years of their lives.
“To an extent. I want to keep meeting new people and keep up with college work so it won’t be often that I keep up with my current friends,” Macie Oliver, senior, said.
Even though their senior year is ending, they are heading towards new beginnings and striving for success.
