Q. Do you have any advice for your peers?

A. For those moving on to college, I’d just like to say take every opportunity you can to learn and see as much of the world as possible. And for the friends who will be becoming seniors at Emmaus, enjoy and appreciate everything the school has to offer because senior year flies by so quickly.
