No one is as ready to graduate as the seniors. With college applications, the last round of SAT and ACT testing, and most stressful of all, a yearlong class about learning in order to produce a final product, seniors are ready to be done. Maggie McNeeley, a senior here at Brashier, is no different, but first she must conquer the challenge that is Senior Project.

“Part of my project is growing [plants] and the other part is making recipes. I’ve lost a few plants already, and haven’t started my recipes. I want to make sure everything is healthy. Pea plants are really cute,” said McNeeley.

McNeeley did encounter some difficulties earlier in the year, and anticipates some potential issues.

“It took longer than expected to set up the hoop house. And the plants are taking longer to grow, but that’s because I’m naive. Some of the plants are temperature sensitive, so I need to check the temperature a lot, and some need different amounts of water,” said McNeeley.

During this process, McNeeley realized some important truths about Senior Project which she wants to pass down to incoming seniors.

“Keep your receipts for product development, take a lot of pictures and videos, and work on your journals ahead of time. Do something you enjoy, and don’t let others dictate what you’re doing,” said McNeeley.
