She recalled “dying laughing at all their stupid jokes and crazy pictures of teachers and their look alikes.” Chapey’s favorite article she wrote was one featuring the girls soccer team. It was her favorite because she enjoyed her friends’ excitement at being featured.

I’ve learned new things about activites and classes I’m not involved in.” Next year Heaney will be attending Cornell University, where she will major in industrial and labor relations.
