Senior Will and Testaments:

2017-2018

 

The final moment of high school has arrived for the Class of 2018. Every year seniors have the opportunity to leave a few words of advice, a right of passage, or a memory to those they will be leaving behind. While Herrin High will miss each senior dearly, having these will & testaments allows their legacies to carry on.

Congratulations, Class of 2018!

  • Senior’s Name: Kennedy E. Pasley
  • Recipient of the will: DJ McInturff, Bryndle Burks, Aliya Gilley, Ainsley Farmer, Band Babies
  • Testament: To D.J. McInturff, I leave my cherished band chair that once belonged to Allison Grace, in the hope that you will treasure it as I have.  To Bryndle Burks, I leave with you my beloved oboe section, our current shared band folder, and my band locker so you can finally have one!  To Aliya Gilley & Ainsley Farmer, practice, practice, practice, practice, practice, practice. To all my wonderful Band Babies, never give up.  I know it’s not always easy but music is a part of all of you and you should never give it up. Even when you leave high school, even when you leave college, find a way to keep making music.  Don’t be afraid to follow your passion, whatever it may be. I believe you can do anything and I am so proud of you.
