Elle Dawson, Senior Contributor

Elle Dawson is a senior at Canfield High School.

Being at the school for four years now, a lot has changed for Elle and the people around her these last few years.

Many thoughts are going through Elle’s mind as she enters her final year of high school, and as she begins contemplating where she will be residing for the next four years of her life. 

As this overwhelming yet exciting decision nears day by day, it brings Elle to reflect on her high school days and her mindset entering senior year.

Dawson said, “Overall high school has been really awesome. I've had a lot of freedom and made really good friends, it's sad to see it come to an end, but the memories will last a lifetime.

This last year of high school I heard feels like it passes super quick so i hope to enjoy every day, do lots of lasts, and have lots of fun.” 

Likewise, Elle is ready for this next chapter of her life...


It has been brewing around her mind as deadlines approach.

Elle is also a talented swimmer, and she wishes to pursue her passion in college. 

What does swimming and college mean for Elle Dawson in these coming months?

Dawson said, “ Thinking about college is stressful but I'm super excited to get to a new point in my life. Swimming would be an awesome part of the college experience because it would get me involved and make me part of a community, while also helping out with tuition!” 

Elle wishes to stay in-state, but not close enough where she can’t experience a new environment with new people and adventures.

Elle expressed, “Going to college seems really exciting because it’s a whole different life and I get to be more independent.” 

Elle is taking everything in as she walks down the halls of Canfield High last time.
