LSHS Graduates Leave Advice For Future Graduating Classes
June 23, 2012
Lee’s Summit High School art student Breana Washington wanted her graduating class to leave something creative and personal at their alma mater. Two weeks before graduation she organized and collected statements from her classmates during their senior level English classes.
Each senior finished the sentence: “While I was at LSHS I wish I would have...” She found that most students wished they had taken their grades, future, extra-curricular activities or school events more seriously.
Breana and other senior art students compiled the data into a work of art that will hang in the breezeway at Lee’s Summit High School. As students walk past it, they will be able to read the advice and names of the class of 2012. The original handwritten statements are being kept as a time capsule for future high school reunions.
