Michael Arena: Senior memory

Michael Arena

Over the past four years Archbishop Carroll has been much more than just the high school I attended. The memories and life lessons I made during the past couple years will always stick with me. The people I met and became good friends with will always be by my side. They will always be family and we will always stay in touch.

These past years have not only opened my eyes to so many different aspects of life, but have made me into a better and more confident person. I learned a lot about myself and grew as a human. I learned a number of different lessons and can honestly say I’m proud of myself.

Leaving Carroll this year is definitely going to be different and a large change, but the friends that I’ve made will always be around and the memories will always be remembered.

My favorite memory is playing football at lunch and getting yelled at by Mr. Keehn because we were tackling each other.

Through the short four years, my friend group grew larger and larger. The people that I consider to be family, I didn’t even know they existed before attending Carroll. The bonds I’ve made with my boys will never be broken. I’m ready to start a new journey and a new chapter in my life, but Carroll will never be forgotten.
