Smiling for the camera, senior Camille O’Neill holds up her Certification of Completion of the WAGES internship. O’Neil spent 40 days down at the University of Lincoln helping people figure out ways to pay their rent. “I heard about this program through the Nebraska Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired,” O’Neill said. “One takeaway I had was to not take things for granted. I’m grateful I get to directly impact the lives of the less fortunate population.”

Sitting among the stairs at the infamous Roman Theatre in Jordan, junior Sarah Qaud journeys throughout the country to popular attractions such as this one. Taking a trip to visit her family living outside of the United States, Qaud spent 38 days outside of the country this summer. “The Roman Theater is mindblowing, and it was so interesting how Jordans would just sit and walk around it normally, whereas I was acting like a whole tourist,” Qaud said. “There are no words to describe how much I enjoyed it.”

A great escape

After an absence lasting over 10 years, Komla-Ebri revisits her childhood home with numerous family members who traveled from Italy and France.“This trip made me happy in many different ways,” Koma-Ebri said. “Getting to see family I haven’t seen in years and revisiting where I used to live and go to school was like a distant happy memory.”

Senior Delaney Cutler cheers on the Wildcats from the sideline. However next year, she will be cheering on the Huskers. Cutler made the University of Nebraska Lincoln pep squad - a difficult feat. “I was constantly refreshing instagram trying to see the post as soon as it came out,” Cutler said. “When it finally did I screamed so loud and ran downstairs to tell my parents. When I was hugging my mom I had to look at my phone again to make sure it was still my name on the list. It’s insane, I cannot believe my name is on that list.”

Some seniors are jumping at the opportunity to get a head before going to college by enrolling in general education classes at Metro Community College. Senior Golden Kelly is enrolled in psychology and has been able to apply what she's learned to some of her high school classes. “I started taking classes at Metro because I really wanted to get some of my general credits that I would take as a freshman in college out of the way,” said Kelly. “Taking classes at Metro is just so much cheaper so I saw it as an opportunity to get ahead and save money at the same time.”
