The time is here. On Thursday, June 3, seniors will be throwing their hats in the air for all the hard work they have put into their academic careers and all the work that most of them will continue to put in throughout college.
BCP has continued to allow its Cadets to continue their academic paths with the option of college. Whether that is through their grades or with sports, most of its Cadets have the opportunity to go to college.
Benedictine's Cadets can't take all the credit for themselves. Some credit goes to the teachers of the school, who taught them everything they needed to know. Some of their teachers even helped their students with the career path that they will be starting with their college major. "Typically about one to three of the Cadets I've taught major in journalism at college," said journalism teacher Mr. Forester. "Yes, I'll miss my seniors; I'll also miss my hair."
All the credit can't go strictly to the teachers, though. The now-alumni have put in more than enough work for the tassels to be (figuratively) flipped from one side of their caps to the other. Either through getting amazing grades through the help of Benedictine's finest teachers or sports such as our state championship football, wrestling and baseball teams, our playoff contender soccer and lacrosse teams, even our track team got Cadets sent to college with a full scholarship. "I wanna thank all the coaches at Benedictine for helping me get to play college football," said newly accredited alumni Logan Cohn. "I couldn't be more excited to play and show what I've been working for."
These rising college freshmen used four years of their young lives to come to Benedictine. The years used here could have been put to work at any other high school or private school but the new alumni chose to come here to better themselves and to put their skills to the test with the military aspect of this school. Some of the students who come to BCP don't stay their full four years, but these seniors had the guts to stay in a tough environment and bake it through to the other side of the tunnel. If they made it through this school they inevitably will be able to make it through anything that life throws their way.
