Senior Carmen Conforti came to Kentlake from Rainer Christian school district her freshman year, and while we all know it can be hard to come to a school where you know hardly anyone, Conforti said it was one of the best parts of high school. “Coming from a different school district and not knowing anyone was great because I got to meet a lot of new people, most of which I am still friends with today,” Conforti said.
While she enjoyed all her years at Kentlake, if she could do one thing over again, it would be her freshman year. Conforti said “I know its cliché, but my freshman year I didn’t really get involved like I have the last 3 years, so I would want to do that over again.”
Along with keeping a 4.0 GPA all throughout highschool and being valedictorian, she is also giving a graduation speech. “I’m doing it with Haley (VonGoedert), who is so sweet and I love her, so it’ll be cool, it will be weird though because it’s the last time we will all be together.” Through all the goals she has accomplished throughout her high school, she said that she had one teacher that really helped her high school experience be one of a kind. “Ms. Rychlik is really funny and awesome, she’s like my mom, and I love her.” When asked if being valedictorian took away from having a fun and exciting 4 years at Kentlake, she disagreed. “Of course, there were times I had to miss out on things so I could study, but overall I didn’t miss too much.”
We at Kentlake will definitely miss Carmen and the whole senior class, and we wish them all luck with their future hopes and dreams.
