I am one of the 36 seniors in Quest Early College High School class of 2012, and we are all currently laughing in unison with our delightful guest speaker. While his topic is serious, (he is an environmental-policy expert and professor of biology speaking to us about various environmental crisis) he has managed to hilariously demand our attention by explaining the uses of bio-solids.Â He is a one of a series of speakers, which are currently booked to speak to my senior class. When the series is over, our speakers will have covered such topics as womenâ€™s health issues, the state of the U.S. economy, civil liberties, global poverty, and human rights.
All of these speakers are preparing my fellow seniors and I for THE accomplishment of our high school careers, an accomplishment which comes with a public speech, research in a field of study, and finally the challenge to positively impact our community and world for generations. At Quest ECHS, this experience is known as Senior Exhibition, and completion is required to graduate.
Senior Exhibition promises to be a â€śroller coaster rideâ€ť according to my history teacher, Mr. Newton, and I am happy to be sharing this experience via blog! To give everyone some background on Senior Ex, I will do my best to first explain the unique class structure at Quest High School.
