This year we’ll be saying “au revoir” to Peyton Capellen, Riley Sakurada and Halle Sullivan. These guys are the best The Brand’s seen in a while; you can ask anybody. They’ve been around for Espy’s most crucial words of advice and they’ve done their fair share of procrastinating when they were supposed to be writing rough drafts.
Capellen has been on the varsity golf team for four years and was in National Honor Society for three years.
He will be missing the irreplaceable memories he’s made these two years.
“I will miss getting to take pictures, even though I didn’t really take many this year, I’ll still miss that. I will also miss Espy making references to movies that none of us has ever seen and his long political talks,” said Capellen.
This was Sakurada’s first year in The Brand and he mentions that it’s a harder class than he is used to but he knows he has learned many things.
Sakurada has been playing baseball since his freshman a year, basketball and football his freshman through junior years.
“I will for sure miss Espy’s long and meaningless talks,” said Sakurada.
Sullivan has been on the swim team for four years, in the key club three years and two of those years as vice president. She has also been part of Future Farmers of America for one year and has been in The Brand for a semester.
Sullivan thinks this class has taught her a lot of beneficial things.
“I learned how to use a camera so, that’s a good thing. I wish I had started sooner so I could have more of the fun memories with everyone in the class,” said Sullivan.
These seniors have learned what it’s like to have a responsibility bigger than a simple quarter grade. They were responsible for finishing their part of the construction of a school newspaper; in a limited amount of time, so they could be delivered to people around the community. Despite the amount of time that these unforgettable seniors have been a part of The Brand, they will surely be missed.
