Final words Seniors give their advice for the last time

Morgan Chan

Go do that crazy thing you’ve been wanting to do. If your parents say they’ll kill you for it, don’t listen. They’ll eventually come around, maybe even decide that it’s kinda cool. And get out of Tigard, go somewhere else. Of all the things that I’ve learned the last four years, nothing valuable has come from school. Sorry teachers, but I didn’t learn how to jump a car from you. The important, life relevant things come from living life. So go do it. One last thing: don’t walk slow in front of people who need to go somewhere and don’t park yourself in the middle of the hallway and talk to your friends, I need to get around you and I will shove you aside. I’ve got places to go, and you’re in my way.

Eliza Sang Make friends who will like you for who you are.

Ben Smith A word of advice, do more! You will always have time and high school flies by way too fast. There are very few things I regret doing, but many things I regret NOT doing. Enjoy your high school years.

Silvia Martinez Take advantage of your senior year by meeting new people, joining clubs, and having fun. Make your senior year the best you can with memories that will last forever.

PAGE 8 | June 7, 2010 | SENIOR ISSUE

Matt Redlinger

Your high school years are often proclaimed the best years of your youth, acknowledge that fact. Get out there and try new things, meet new people, be adventurous. Take these few years to experience life before all the obligations of being an adult.

Katie Aden Dev Devvrat Don’t get hung up on the little things. Yeah, High School is about finding who you are but it’s also about finding out what you can do. Just walk through those big green doors with a smile on your face, ideas in your mind, and a willingness to take on everyday with nothing less than your best.

Drew Jennison Take a class with Murray Carlisle. Period.

Tiffany Quach Don’t do IB!

Austin Haag When I was a sophomore I weighed about 230 pounds. A friend told me that I’d look “really cute” if I lost some weight, so I did! The quality of my life depends on how healthy I keep myself. I stopped eating double western cheese burgers and started doing cardio workouts regularly. I lost 50 pounds in a little over three months and I never regretted it, I had no reason to!

Claudia Fox Get Involved. The biggest thing anyone ever regrets is not getting to really do something. Join a club, join a team, join something. Become part of your school, and give yourself a good reason to keep coming back every day. Just think: would you rather be sitting in the bleachers on a Friday night or would you rather be out there on the field!

Ben Bowman

Don’t give weight to just anything. Doing that will only make the things that truly matter to you seem insignificant and you end up giving up on the things you truly want to do.

Amy Phou Just go after what you want, maybe in the end sometimes the things that you think you want don’t work out, but most likely, it was never meant to happen. There’s always something good bound to happen, and cherish the people, whether they’ve treated you wrong or right, because... without them, would you be the person you are today or tomorrow? Just learn to be strong, and take the mistakes and wrong doings as lessons dearest to you, because life isn’t going to stop just for you.

Dear future SENIORS, juniors, and sophomores I have one tip of advice for you before you go into a new chapter of your life... the people around you may annoy you at times, they may make you laugh hysterically at times, they might make you cry and yell, but they will always be your friends. I have had many experiences throughout my high school career where I thought the kids in my class were annoying and I wished I was graduating in a different class. It took me until this year to realize that I too was one of those annoying kids, and that these friends of mine are the only ones that are actually going to be there with me to go through this experience at the same time. We are going to share memories that no one else can even compare with, and we are going to walk together. You need to learn to love what you have around you because trust me, it goes fast. These fellow classmates of mine have really impacted my life and I know I’m a better person because of them. I am truly going to miss every single one of them. I guess what I’m trying to say is enjoy the time you have because time flies and it’s going to be over before you know it. Have fun next year! We will be!

Patrick Browne

I’ve been a student at Tigard High School for four years now, and I am happy to say that I will leave this place with experiences, memories, and friendships that I will treasure forever. Current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, the only advice I have to offer is this: apply for scholarships ASAP, do NOT IB test, sign up for Massa Unis’ Advanced History class, study hard for current events, stay away from the bathrooms by the bookkeeper, and make sure you’re friends with at least one person with a car. Take advantage of the opportunities you are presented with at Tigard High, and have a good year next year!

Carlen Hammer High school has taught me many things from understanding many types of humor, to procrastination. The advice I would like to leave is never hold back; be friends with everyone, do sports and clubs, try theater, smile at random people in the hallway, and live it in a way you won’t completely regret.

Nicki Robinson Don’t be so worried about embarrassing yourself. Some of my favorite memories came out of embarrassing moments, things that could have potentially been embarrassing, or what other people would think is embarrassing. My freshman year I walked around the halls in a Bear in the Big Blue House costume on a dare and this year I stepped in wet paint on the curb leaving a trail of yellow footprints on the way to the building. I could go on and on. If you don’t worry as much about looking like a fool you might just find yourself having fun.

Allison Moss The set of morals that your parents instill you with when you were born determines your sense of right and wrong. While most of these are fairly similar, such a as “it’s bad to hit Tommy” others are more selective, even passed down from your parents’ parents. “Tattoos are bad”, “sex is bad,” and if you break these morals instilled in you, you will feel a new reaction, an emotion called “guilt” which ultimately leads to regret. Regret is what hinders progress. Regret brought on by guilt. If you are stuck in the past, you can never shape the future. The future is yours to shape. I’m not saying to stir rebellion, to not look at mistakes you have made. No, it is time to learn and move on. If you don’t get an A in that class, the world will not explode in a ball of flaming inferno. You will move on, your life will still be what you want. Has your regret for the past stopped you from experiencing something? The world won’t come down on top of you if you do not get into the university you want. How much will that hinder your college experience? As much as you let it. Do you like regretting, feeling guilty for longer than you should? Then don’t. It’s that simple. Your life is in your hands. Why make it boring? Design by Morgan Chan, Shannon Malamphy and Maris Schwarz

TIGARD HIGH SCHOOL

VALEDICTORIANS

Dedication, motivation, purple hoods By Brittany Nguyen

In order to be a valedictorian, you need a perfect GPA and be a part of the Honor School program. Meet your ten valedictorians, nine of whom are IB Diploma Candidates.

Joseph Bitney

College attending: University of Oregon Honor’s College Which teacher inspires you the most? “I’d have to say all my IB teachers are fantastic. But if I had to pick one, I would say Mr. Carlisle because he was always able to grade my papers in about 1/60th of the time it took me to do them.” Any last words? “Here I am…rock you like a hurricane.”

Taylor Gentry

College attending: University of Oregon What was your “secret weapon” for keeping a good grade? “The people I surround myself with continuously motivated me as I motivated them too. Working in conjunction with others is a great way to stay motivated.” Worst moment in high school: “The start of the most intense IB testing week: 12 hours and 15 minutes of testing and knowing that it’s in front of you.”

Joshua Gensler

College attending: The University of Chicago What was your most embarrassing moment in high school? “One instance comes to mind but I’d rather not share it in its entirety. I’m a fidgety speaker and I’ll leave the story at that.” Any advice for underclassmen? “Yes, I do have advice. But will it make a difference to them and will they follow it? Probably not. Hence, why bother?”

Benjamin Harbolt

College Attending: Whitworth What kept you motivated to maintain a 4.0 throughout these four years? “Self motivation, a.k.a. fear of my parents, and my competitive nature.” Who is your favorite teacher and why? “Murray Hanes Carlisle because he’s really funny and IB History of the Americas with him was fun. Plus, he’s a geek.”

PAGE 10 | June 7, 2010 | SENIOR ISSUE


Gillian Harger

College attending: Occidental College What was your most embarrassing moment? “In history with Unis we were doing trivia and I didn’t hear the whole question so I yelled out, “China!” when he was talking about North America.” Any Advice for underclassmen? “PDA is disgusting. You don’t look cool. You look disgusting.”

Alexandra Hill

College attending: University of Oregon What was your secret weapon for staying motivated and keeping a good grade? “I introduced every teacher to ‘Ben Franklin’ and they were more than willing to give me A’s!” Which teacher are you most afraid of? “As much as I love her, Dr. Harris scares me sometimes because of her unconditional love for her Farmville cats…”

Kristin Hortsch

College attending: University of Portland IB or not IB and why? “Not IB!!! Don’t do it! It isn’t worth all the stress for no gain. Take the classes for sure but don’t go full IB…too much extra work.” Any last words? “Don’t get stuck in a cul-de-sac you have to back out of…in the words of Dr. Harris.”

Aaron Liu

College attending: University of Southern California What kept you motivated to maintain a 4.0 throughout these four years? “Not having a life.” What was your most embarrassing moment in high school? “Tigard Idol 2009” What was your favorite moment in high school? “Unis doing his Godzilla impression.”

Davia McFarlane

College attending: Portland State University What was your secret weapon for staying motivated and keeping a good grade? “Goldfish and 3x5 inch note cards: you can’t go wrong.” IB or not to IB and why? “IB: I’m a glutton for punishment and I love purple hoods.” What was your most embarrassing moment? “On numerous occasions, I have (and still do) trip while I’m walking up the stairs.”

Mitchell Van Dyke

College attending: University of Oregon What was your most embarrassing moment and why? “When leadership busted into my room at 6:30 AM on Saturday morning to announce that I was prom king. I was shirtless and completely stunned!” Which teacher are you most afraid of? “Mr. Teschner. He threatened to take away my diploma if I didn’t put him down as most fearful teacher.”
