Mrs. McMullen, librarian affd National Honor Society sponsor, com~ mented, "I think a lot of them hav:e matured.

Their lives can go in many directions. I feel that they have ascertained most of the basic needs, and the next most im- portant thing will be experience and time to accomplish the short or long term goals in their lives." Whatever direction they choose to go in, one thing is for certain, the future that seemed so far away has now arrived. Each senior will go his own way, but those memories that were made during those twelve years at Malakoff will always be with each one and the friendships between them will always remain.
