After spending almost all of my junior year online, I am so thankful that semester one of my senior year was back at La Salle — in person. In the past four months, I have made so many new memories that I will never forget. 

Thankfully, I had my film camera with me to capture the most special moments. 

These photos are very special to me, so I hope that this photo story will act as a time capsule to show what it was like to be a senior in high school in 2021-2022.
