Advice from Eyrie Staffers

2015 was a wild ride. For seniors, their journey at EPHS is over. But for incoming seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen, their journeys are just beginning or beginning over again. I’ve compiled advice, informative tidbits and other tips from this year’s Eyrie staffers for students with long roads ahead of them.


Elizabeth Kenyon: Dare to think differently than your peers.

Ally Thorsen: Find a group of friends that you can be yourself with.

Claire Hassler: Don’t be concerned about what other classmates think of you. Be kind and open-minded. Also, have Mr. Gordon as a teacher.

Max Chao: Don’t lost sight of your goals. Keep on track. Have a balanced life.

Zoë Glenn: Do your work.

Abbey Mertz: Take the classes that you want that you’ll enjoy, not what your friends or parents want you to take. Don’t stress about the little things.

Dustin Wolf: “Ignore the naysayers.” -Arnold Schwarzenegger

Yasmin Chavez: Don’t let your homework dictate your life. Spend time with your family and friends.

Andrew Donohue: Find what you’re passionate about and pursue that. Get really involved in a few clubs.

Anthony Rosa: Go out on weekdays and enjoy yourself because you learn more outside of the classroom.

Kristina Briant: Don’t feel obligated to take a bunch of AP classes that you know you can’t handle.

Jodie Flolid: Take advantage of opportunities.

Eagles, your time is now! And remember, it’s never too late to be who you want to be. Make it a good life or not, the choice is yours.
