Senior Profile: Avery Strogoff

Can you share some details on your plans for after graduation? What are you most looking forward to with these plans?

I’ll be attending UMass Amherst, and I’m looking forward to transitioning into adulthood. 

Do you have any memorable moments from your time at South High?

Finding my Fortnite shirt in Andy’s Attic, seeing Ms. Houlihan get promoted, painting the walls in the old school on the last day before we left it, making my first water sale. 

Is there anything specific about the old South building that you will remember?

The pool!

What is something that you have learned or experienced at South High that you will take with you after graduation? 

Spanish and volleyball.

Do you have any advice you would share with rising seniors or with underclassmen?

Control what you can control. High school is hard, and it seems like the world is out to get you sometimes, but it isn’t. You can’t control the amount of work you receive, you can’t control what other people think of you, and you can’t control the past. What you CAN control are your thoughts, words, and actions. Focus on those, and you will succeed.
