Capstone Holds T-Shirts to Dog Toys Drive

Seniors Taylor Bridgett, Olivia Brown, Carly Buchanan, and Emilie Nevius have a passion for animals. That’s why for their Senior Capstone Project, the group is holding two activities involving furry friends.

“Our project is all about helping animals in the local area,” Bridgett said. “We want to benefit local shelters.”

“Some of us did our junior year service hours at local shelters and even after the requirement was done, we kept going back to volunteer,” Buchanan added. “So we knew we wanted our Senior Capstone Project to focus on animals.”

Capstone Brings Awareness to Mental Health

Seniors NyJia Lott, Laura Neff and Ayreon Wilkinson have each seen someone struggle with depression and the toll it can take on a family. That's why for the trio's Capstone Project, they wanted to share the signs of the disorder and remove some of the stigma associated with it.

"We made a power point presentation to show to all the homerooms," shared Neff. "In the power point, we explained depression, its symptoms, causes, and the different methods of treatment."

Seniors Carlos Estrada-Sanchez, Anna Miller, Colin Monroe and Natalie Murray said, "Moving into college we understand that it will be difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle. We wanted to get into the habit now so that we can avoid that dreaded freshman 15. Research on 5-2-1-0 really helped teach us about our upcoming lifestyle choices."

Two senior capstone groups are hoping they can assist the Sisters with their goal as part of their senior capstone projects.
