You all have done an amazing job with all of the community service that you do! I am going to miss serving all of you! ANYWAYS! Seniors: It has been an amazing year with all of you! I don’t know what the club would be like without all of your fun, energetic spirit! Good luck in college and never forget to visit! Don’t forget your passion for service either! Juniors: We have one year left! Let’s make the most out of it! Good luck on SATs and AP testing! We got this! We are almost done with our junior year!! Sophomores: Great ready for one of the hardest years of your life, but it might also be the funnest! Freshman: I know freshman year was easy, but I wish you the best of luck during sophomore year!
