Shipbuilders Strong | The Morse High School Class of 2020 For Real.
“Prom and graduation and having Senior Nights for sports” is what Savannah will miss most about being a Senior this spring at Morse High School.
About being a Shipbuilder, Savannah will miss Mr. O'Leary, the drama teacher, and going into Mr. Bingham's Physical Education classes to help the special needs students. A member of the Unified Basketball team, Savannah loves being a part of such a wonderful program. She also ran track, both indoor and outdoor, for Morse for 4 years.
Knowing that they were the last class to have graduated from the historical 826 High Street school, Savannah says she will miss going into the building at night for performances and concerts, and giggling with her friends.
To the Underclassmen and future Shipbuilders Savannah has the following to say:“I know school work and homework may be stressful , but never give up, always push yourself to the very limit. Try new classes and do sports you’ve never done before. Try Unified Basketball, you’ll love it! If you need help, ask your teachers or even your case manager, and they will help you.”
She continues to encourage everyone to “always make sure you and your fellow peers are all set, and to always be there to push each other.” Skills she will undoubtedly put to good use as she heads to the Maine Army National Guard after graduating this June. After that, her plans are to become a fully active member of the U.S. Army.
In response to what this unique time in the history of the world means to her, Savannah replies “It teaches me no matter what is happening in the world, always stay strong and focus on what you need to work on and do . Also help others like the elderly, go and get their groceries for them . Show everyone respect , even though it’s hard .”
Thank you for sharing your story with us!
Here's To You, Savannah.
