Recently, senior Ramadan (Rami) Doski took 35 fellow UEHS seniors over to JFS to meet with current eighth graders to talk about life at the high school, high school education, and extracurricular activities.
These top seniors from the Class of 2018 are captains on sports teams, class officers and involved in many extracurricular activities and were excited to share their experiences with the younger students.
Rami decided on this service project because of what the middle school meant to him. He said, “The middle school is where I explored my surroundings and really got to know people who are present in my life now. I knew that being mature and respectful was a way of life and I chose at that time I was going to do just that.”
He hoped, that by speaking with seniors, the eighth graders would learn that high school is no joke and being focused is the best way to go. He added, “Respecting one another was a big topic. I wanted them to understand that respect among peers will get them further in life.”
The students met in small groups to discuss many topics with the seniors reiterating respect, responsibility and how important the next four years will be. For the seniors, it was a great opportunity to continue to improve the future of the high school and allow our Tigers in the Middle to see what Tiger Pride means.
Thank you Rami and all the seniors who took time out of their day to meet with these middle school students.
