Cam High is getting ready to part with the class of 2018. Only a few days of school remain, and seniors are experiencing a multitude of emotions as they reminisce about their time in high school.

Seniors have countless options after high school and some are choosing to travel, study abroad, etc. The future is limitless for these seniors. 539 seniors are graduating as a part of the class of 2018, each with a different story and future.

Joshua Montecalvo, will be attending Ventura College next year to gain his associates in paramedics. He said, “I want to be a paramedic firefighter and I want to spend the rest of my life saving lives and helping people.” He delved into the fact that he enjoyed drama the most out of all his classes, and his favorite memory is prom as he met his girlfriend there. Montecalvo believes that his high school years have improved his life skills. “Freshman year my work ethic wasn’t that strong but now I’m more focused and determined,” he said.

Mallorie Mehrali, Cam High’s current ASB President, will be attending the University of Southern California. During her first year, she will be traveling abroad to Switzerland. “One of my favorite high school memories was when I was a sophomore and we won CIF football so we went to Sacramento. I just remember how at every single game the cyclone would get so hyped and everyone was so involved and spirited,” said Mehrali.

Mehrali has gotten more involved in school activities throughout her high school years by running for cabinet positions and breaking out of her shell. “High school has taught me that you can be whoever you want to be, but make sure that you stay true to yourself. It doesn’t matter what other people say. You are on the adventure of life, you lead it and even though people may be in your car, you’re the one driving it,” said Merahli.

Mikayla Kushner, will be going to Ventura College to earn her criminal justice certification of completion. She said that her favorite class throughout high school was 3D sculpture and she has become less quiet compared to her freshman year. Kushner wants to pursue criminal justice in hopes of attending Harvard as a first year. “I love DNA. In middle school I had a DNA project and I blew that out of the water. I took up the entire period with my project,” said Kushner.

Omar Navaro is undecided about his future and may take a gap year. His favorite classes throughout high school were math and drama. Navaro is interested in a career that is math related. “The theater, drama, and Composition Camp was my favorite memory because we got to see so many different people and all of the plays,” said Navaro. Since his freshman year, Navaro says that he has become more productive with work and is friendlier.

Graduation will be on June 15, and the seniors will depart from Cam High with a new life and experience awaiting them.
