A lasting impression

By Maggie Malach and Katie Rooney Editorial Board

Dear fellow members of the class of 2007, We regret to inform you the state of Ohio has recently passed a new law creating a thirteenth grade. No longer will we be graduating June 1, 2007. We will be forced to complete ONE MORE YEAR of high school. If you do not complete this final year, you will be thrown in prison for no less than 20 years. In prison you will be forced to finish high school anyway, so just get it over with here at Loveland. If you believed this, even for a moment, we don’t know if you are qualified to graduate. We just thought we’d pull one last trick. “Last” is a funny word, isn’t it? We’ve all heard it many times in the past year. Our LAST homecoming. Our LAST football game. Our LAST high school spring break. Our LAST day of high school. Our LAST chance to see the people we have known for so many years. What we must focus on, though, are all the firsts in our future. Our FIRST time living without our parents. Our FIRST time facing financial responsibility. The FIRST time we must declare our future career. The FIRST time we won’t be penalized for being tardy to class. For many of us our first day of college will be filled with anxiety because we do not know what lies ahead. For the past twelve years, we have lived securely in the comfort zone known as Loveland. Now we must leave behind the familiarity of our home and friends and approach the world as adults.

It will be the first time we are living on our own, with no one to do our laundry or make our beds. No one will be there to make sure we go to class or study. Even though some of us have been eighteen for almost a year, we will finally be recognized as adults. As you move on to different people and different places, never forget what a vital part your four years here at Loveland have played in shaping you as a person. Take your best experiences with you, and try to forget about all of the homework, all of the tests, all of the drama, and that one time you locked yourself in your car. These past four years we have all had good experiences and experiences we wish we could forget. Remember to carry with you all of the lessons you have learned and all of the memories you have created. High school is not about the destination; it is about the journey.

By Jess Grissom and Roxanne Wang Editorial Board

Upon first arriving at Loveland High School as freshmen, we were greeted with the loving chant, “Go home, freshmen.” It was at this moment that we, the members of the class of 2007, were officially inducted into the high school. This moment occurred four years ago, when we were just getting acquainted with our new schedules. Although entering high school seemed intimidating at the time, we went through each year meeting new people, learning to be our own individual and making new memories. It is hard to believe that graduation is right around the corner; some are sad to leave, others are excited, but everyone is ready to take the next step. We have all

come so far since 2003. We’ve seen former classes graduate and felt their excitement; now it’s finally the class of 2007’s time to shine. As we embark upon one of the largest changes in our lives, we reflect back to the numerous memories that Loveland High School has provided: Friday night football games, Homecoming dances, winning Homecoming week for two years in a row, powder puff, mud volley ball, hall decorating, lawn painting, getting iFlurtz, rocking out at Battle of the Bands, getting our licenses, missing school due to the gas leak, snow days, raising money for the Invisible Children of Uganda, dress up days for Homecoming, senior lunches, deciding what we will do after graduation, ordering caps and gowns, senior week, senior superlatives, prom and finally June 1, 2007, the final milestone for us seniors. Congratulations class of 2007. We did it! We survived four years of high school and have gained much life experience in the process. We wish everyone success with their future plans. As we venture into the “real world”, we will always be connected by this common thread, known as Loveland High School. High school is a once in a lifetime experience, and although we will never relive these years, we have the memories forever. To all the underclassmen, the class of 2007 has made a lasting imprint on the school, good luck filling our shoes. So, Loveland High School, “Good-bye to You.”

A valediction to the class of 2007 By Kathleen Berwanger Guest Writer

“In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because passing civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honor and responsibility anyone could have.” These words spoken by Lee Iococa lie tattered and worn, taped to the corner of my desk in Room 116. They have lain there for many years. While the paper may be frayed, the message remains strong, a message that inspires me every day and reminds me of how blessed I have been. For forty years I have taught here in Loveland, teaching English at all levels, 712. I have chaperoned dances, sponsored

clubs and writing teams, directed plays, assisted with curriculum development, sponsored the Literary Magazine and attended many graduations. I taught during the rebellious 60s, the peaceseeking 70s, the selfloving 80s, the technological 90s and the everchanging 2000’s. Each decade produced its own challenges and rewards. Through all of these years one constant remains: I have met thousands of remarkable young men and women, students who have

become today’s writers, lawyers, policemen, firemen, technicians, doctors, politicians, artists, teachers scientists etc. Their successes are due in part to their time here in Loveland schools. My own affiliation with Loveland has very deep roots. I am a Loveland grad as are both of my parents. My mother and I both wrote articles for the LHS newspaper and my father illustrated the yearbook when he was a senior. I am honored photo by Alex Seney to have the opportunity to write one more article. I feel

that I have been a student here forever. Now I get to “graduate” with the class of 2007! The Class of 2007—too many awesome individuals to name! From the Abby’s to the Zack’s, they are hard working, focused young people with lofty goals. They see beyond high school and are focused on the great things they want to accomplish in their lives. We send them into the world and pray that they live their visions. To each member of this Class of 2007, I offer a final thought: As we “graduate” Loveland High School (certainly an appropriate name!), may we always remember with heart-felt gratitude this little community and all of the administrators, counselors, teachers, coaches, secretaries and custodians who have so admirably prepared us for this next road on our journey called “life.” Please recycle!!
