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.”

Junior Drew Borner celebrates in a game against Gretna in the Metro Tournament. Millard West would win this game 6-1 to advance to play Millard South in the second round. “Most of us hadn’t really played varsity baseball so we had no idea what to expect,” Borner said. “I think we handled it very well. We went through lots of ups and downs, but played our best ball in the games that mattered the most.”
