As the second semester of the 2019-2020 school year quickly comes to an end, The Catalyst spoke with a few NDB seniors to discuss how they survived their second semester of senior year, both in and out of the classroom. 

Becoming a second semester senior is one of the most exciting times for a high school senior. There are so many activities to look forward to such as senior ditch day, senior prom, and most importantly, graduation. With these exciting events come many many assignments, projects, and tests that seniors must work hard on to maintain their final grade point average. But, regardless of all the stress and exciting moments, each senior will leave their last semester of high school with new memories. 

With the second semester coming to a unique end due to reasons surrounding COVID-19, senior Elizabeth Muscat said her favorite memory includes, “A lot of time FaceTiming with my friends for hours, even though we had nothing to talk about.” 

Other seniors tend to reflect on the memories with their classmates that came before the quarantine. 

“A good moment that was memorable from second semester was being able to participate in the senior walk the night of the auction. Little did we all know that that was going to be the last time the senior class was going to be all together. For that reason, the senior walk will always hold a special place in my heart,” Senior Callie Malone reflected.

The class of 2020 has definitely had a difficult end to their senior year, but it is apparent that they are all making the most of it.
