Revere class council and administration recognized the Revere Class of 2021 through senior quotes displayed in the cafeteria and senior spotlights on the district’s social media. 

Along with senior quotes, Revere is displaying senior spotlights on the district’s social media including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Communications specialist Jennifer Reece explained why she started the spotlights last March. 

“[Quarantine] was a difficult time for a lot of people not even being at school anymore at all. We really wanted to showcase our senior class, so we started it last year and then this year, it’s kind of the same thing and [we] wanted to make sure people can see some of our seniors and what they’re doing and what their plans are,” Reece said. 

To submit your senior spotlight, seniors can fill out a google form sent out earlier in the year. Reece explained how she gets the information. 

“Mr. King, about a month and a half ago, sent the senior class a Google link [with] three questions and also a place where you could submit your photos. . .  He gave me access and I usually pick one every couple days and put it together,” Reece said.   

Along with senior spotlights, senior quotes are featured on the back wall of the cafeteria, which cycles through the quotes along with  announcements and other information. The quotes change every week with a new set of five students. 

The idea of senior quotes stemmed from the senior class-council, and senior class advisor Jenna Repp explained why these students wanted to create senior quotes.

“I think in some ways we were looking for unique ways to celebrate our seniors during COVID, and so this was one suggestion [the class-council] officers came up with that we thought would be a great chance for seniors to have some fun and share a little bit about their personality,” Repp said.

To submit a quote, seniors follow a similar process to the senior spotlights. After students submit their quote, King approves them and Repp continues the process. 

“I created the Google Form where students submit their quotes and then I’ll put [them] into the template and display them in the cafeteria, And get them read on the morning announcements,” Repp said. 

King sent out only one Google Form for the year. Repp explained the advantage to submitting a senior quote earlier on. 

“There’s no deadline, they’re just like a rolling process. But the sooner you submit it, the more likely it is to be chosen,” Repp said. 

Senior student council president Michael Schloss, one of the first to submit a quote, explained why he chose his quote. 

“My senior quote was ‘the wealthiest camel has the largest hump’ (Abraham Lincoln). I chose this quote because I find it hilarious, and it’s from a Geico commercial,” Schloss said. 

The senior quotes and senior spotlights will continue through the second semester until the seniors graduate.
