Senior Perspectives: Cassie Cuddihy
March 3, 2020
In my time at East, I have been a very active member of the student body throughout various aspects of student life. My involvement in programs such as the music department, theater department, Interact Club and academic honor societies have enriched my experience at East. Through years of experience in these programs, I have accepted numerous leadership positions. In the music department, I assumed the roles of East Singers Co-President and Voce Co-Officer. These positions have taught me how to work effectively and respectfully with my peers. I believe that these skills will accompany me on my college journey.
At East, I have had the opportunity to make many friends. It is amazing that as a senior, I am still meeting new people every day. While involved in activities in D-wing such as choir and theatre, I have acquired better communication skills and teamwork. Additionally, the experiences that I have been able to go through with people whom I now consider my closest friends are unforgettable.
One thing that I will miss most about East is the support from certain teachers that I have received throughout the past four years here. I always felt supported and cared for by my teachers. East is unique because the faculty works to better the lives of the student body by constantly going the extra mile: whether that means staying after school to help students understand a concept or taking time to help a student with a need for assistance.
Reflecting on my past four years at East is bittersweet. While thinking about my time at East, I can recall countless incredible opportunities that I have been offered both academically and through extracurricular activities. I am not only grateful for these, but sentimental. The memories that I have created as a Cougar have truly shaped me as a person and set a foundation for the person I will continue to be in college and beyond.
