A high school experience unlike any other: the Holly Spirit says goodbye to senior staff members

Pandemics, political chaos and a whole host of other disruptive and crazy events have defined the high school experience of many graduating seniors. Despite the interruptions, it wasn’t all bad; many seniors found resilience and strength in coming back to the building, and others found solace in the company of their peers amid the chaos. The Holly Spirit was blessed with a massive senior class, many of whom were editors, award-winners and key members of the staff who helped to shape the paper into what it is today.
