Senior projects showcase Londonderry students’ talents
That’s not the case at Londonderry High School, where 31 of this year’s soon-to-be graduates showed off the fruits of their labor during a public “Senior Showcase” Monday evening.
The elective program allows students to pursue a topic or idea of their choice throughout their senior year, under the guidance of a staff mentor. Special talents and skills honed during their years spent at the high school are emphasized, with the end result being an in-depth community service or volunteer experience, a job shadow or internship, a performance or creative project, or a finished product like a rebuilt engine, a completed novel or an art portfolio.
The latest crop of projects is as eclectic as the students themselves, ranging from completed children’s books to original video games to ambitious charity fundraising events to lasting impressions on the school landscape.
“It was a really, really long year,” Anderson said with a laugh. “But oh, did I learn a lot.”
“Something was missing for them, and we really wanted them to have the same opportunities that all the other athletes had,” said Magoon.
Alisha Hill wrote a memoir about her personal struggle coping with Lyme disease.
Erin Twombley and Sabrina Wallace teamed up to create an original mosaic that will continue to grace the front foyer for years to come.
“It’s done in all colors of the rainbow to represent all of the students here,” Wallace said.
