Shipbuilders Strong | The Morse High School Class of 2020 For Real.
“I was looking forward to playing tennis, going to prom, and graduation” says Kimberly of her unexpectedly abbreviated senior year.
Being a Shipbuilder means missing “the pep rallys and my underclassmen friends” the most to Kimberly. She will miss the Montgomery Theater as we say goodbye to the building at 826 High Street within the next year as well.
As a 4 year-athlete of the field hockey and tennis teams, Kimberly has learned to balance school and extracurricular activities very well. She also plays in a travel field hockey club year-round which requires incredible dedication and commitment to her schedule. Her advice for underclassmen comes from her experience. She remarks “understand procrastination, and realize you are going to procrastinate.”
She has certainly learned how to work through her own procrastination habits and succeed greatly as she heads off to Wheaton College in the Fall to study Business and play Field Hockey. Kimberly is another student-athlete that I have known for many years and I can say with certainty that she is one to rise to a challenge, dig in, and end up succeeding in the end. I am very much looking forward to watching and hearing of her time at Wheaton, and cannot wait for her to have these experiences.
The most positive lesson Kimberly has learned from the Covid-19 pandemic is that “every life is valuable.” This pandemic spring has shown us this repeatedly. Your insight and thoughtfulness is truly heartfelt and appreciated, Kim!
Thank you for sharing your story with us. I am grateful to have been able to get to know you as an amazing athlete and a wonderful person over the years.
Here's To You, Kimberly.
