The El Dorado High School seniors gathered for a senior dinner Thursday evening to reminisce, hand out senior gifts and get a preview of the senior video.

Senior Patrick Wilson spoke to the group, following their meal.

“I realize as a class we have undergone many changes,” he said. “While our future is uncertain, one thing is certain; change will remain part of our life.”

He told them it was how they handled that change that mattered most.

“From a very young age, we realized change was inevitable,” he continued. “Each change we faced offered us a greater opportunity.”

He recalled some memories from their time in school over the years, such as the time some of them decided to sneak onto the bus for the middle school incentive trip. He also recalled the bus waiting at a rest stop for those students to be picked up.

He also remembered walking into El Dorado High School as freshmen, as well as when they moved to the new school.

“All of these changes helped us become the individuals who will step out into the world,” Wilson said. “Once again, change will walk hand in hand with this class.”

He closed with a poem about graduation.

Next, the senior class officers presented the senior awards, such as happiest, biggest flirt, class clown and Miss and Mr. EHS.

To round out the evening, they wanted a few minutes of the senior video, then joined in for the class chant one more time.
