You have almost made it to the end! It is hard for me to believe that in just four short days, Deerfield will lose the Class of 2016, the class that has shaped, inspired, and excited our community for the past nine months. I truly do not believe that anyone is ready to see them go. With them, they brought spirit, joy, and leadership. I can only hope the Class of 2017 will follow in their footsteps.
Each and every member of the Class of 2016 is destined to change some aspect of our world. Here at The Scroll, we want to celebrate these students and the places to which they are headed in the near future.
This issue highlights the matriculation results for the Class of 2016. Last year, for reasons that are valid and well-intentioned, The Scoll’s Editor-In-Chief at the time, Bella Hutchins, chose not to report on where the senior class was headed to college.
As the new Editorial Board, however, we have weighed both sides of the issue, and we have come to the conclusion that our community is simply curious. We are anxious to know where our peers are off to next fall — the places to which they will bring a piece of Deerfield — and that curiosity is not a bad thing. It is important, however, to note that the colleges and universities our peers choose to attend are not the sole or total measure of their successes or characters. As a community, let’s remember that. Let’s respect everything they have done for us and wish them well in their future endeavors, wherever those may take them.
To the Deerfield community: 2015-2016 has been a year to remember. Congratulations on your hard work and persistent spirit. Let’s carry on the legacy the seniors are leaving behind. Finish up strong.
To the Class of 2016: I wish every one of you endless luck in the future. Thank you for Br1n6ing It Back!
All the best,
