Letter to Seniors: Angela Lavoy

Wow! What a mind-blowing end to your high school experience. There is so much to process. I won’t say too much here–you have most likely heard so many words of wisdom and encouragement from family, friends, and your teachers by now.

But, chew on these morsels: learn something new–big or small–on a regular basis. It will pay off in the long run, because no one can ever take your education from you. Know that life’s journey is not a straight line–there will be zig-zags. And, finally, remember the only thing you can control is the moment you are in, so stay present.

I wish you the best in whatever you do. It’s been a great pleasure watching you grow.

Be well

Angela Lavoy
