Senior sunrise breaks horizon of new year

Madysen Hawley

At 6 a.m. August 22, the class of 2024 swarmed Pierpont Beach for the annual senior sunrise. The crisp morning air carried the weight of excitement and nervousness for the year to come as students played spike ball and volleyball, admired views, and bonded.

“I was nervous about going, but I’m glad that I went,” senior Kayla Madrid said. “Because I got to see amazing people that I haven’t seen in a while.”

However, a downfall of our beautiful West Coast is that the sun rises in the East. This means that the sunrise was mostly hidden behind buildings and palm trees. 

This did not hinder the fun, though. Senior sunrise serves less as a great view and more as a symbol of a new beginning for seniors. This message was not lost as students reflected on past years and wondered about their final test of high school.

“There’s a lot of yucky stuff [in high school] but now we’ve done all that yucky stuff together and now we get to have fun,” senior Logan Krause said.
