Class of 2020 Senior Focus: Alex Siecke
Last updated 4/30/2020 at 5:15pm
Editor's note: The Edmonds Beacon is working with Kemmerly Chipongian, a senior at Edmonds-Woodway, and one of school's ASB members, to recognize the Class of 2020.
The ASB has created ewhs2020_futures on its Instagram page. In addition to our website, the Beacon will also post student profiles on its edmondsbeacon Instagram page, as well as on Facebook.
As you know, Gov. Jay Inslee ordered all schools in the state to shut down for the entire school year due to the coronavirus pandemic's effects. This means high school seniors at E-Dub and schools nationwide will not have their traditional proms.
While the status of graduation ceremonies remains unclear, it's likely social distancing will affect any ceremonies that are held.
The Beacon reached out to several local seniors about their plans and coping mechanisms during the ongoing pandemic.
First up: Alex Siecke
"I'm Alex Siecke, a senior at Edmonds-Woodway, and I will be attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the fall as an Environmental Management and Protection major.
"I am very excited to be moving to California, meeting new people, and having new experiences. I am upset with the way my senior year had to come to an end, but I am spending more time with family, which almost makes it worth it.
"I feel very fortunate to be able to contact my friends from afar using different social medias and FaceTime. The staff at Edmonds-Woodway are very supportive, and understand what us seniors are going through, so I have hope for some of our traditions to be held later in the summer.
"Our class ASB is working tirelessly to make sure every senior feels appreciated by running the @ewhs2020_futures as well as reaching out to remind each other we are not alone."
