A Glimpse into the Lives of Our Seniors in 2026

The class of 2016 is rapidly arriving at the finish line. It’s been a great run, but this race has finally come to an end and it is now time for seniors to venture off into post-graduation life.

After an entire year of relatives, peers, and guidance counselors abusing the famous line, “where are you going to college?” students have finally revealed the monumental decision. Now that everyone can finally put this question to rest, it’s time to pester our seniors with a new future based question, and ask, “Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?”

Ten years prior to graduation, the class of 2016 seniors were innocent second graders with the only concern at the time being recess. Flash forward 10 years, and the concern is no longer when recess is, but rather in what direction life is headed.

The year is 2026. Some may have established families, be working as a CEO of a major company, or pursuing their dream career. Who knows- someone sitting in your chemistry class may end up becoming the next Steve Jobs.
