With school winding down and summer starting up, it is almost time for the soon-to-be seniors to begin their work on the Senior Exit Project. From charity work to creative projects, the SEP has it all. While some are dreading this project, others are using it as a tool to pursue their passions and make a difference in the community. Here are just a few of the ambitious projects the soon-to-be seniors are beginning their work on this summer.

Hanna Kohlmeier will be building a shelving unit for the WSHS Softball Team’s storage room. Kohlmeier has no experience in building shelves and is excited that the project will give her hands-on experience. “I can’t wait to get started,” said Kohlmeier. She has never been able to give back to the softball team before, and the SEP was the perfect opportunity. “This project is really going to help me learn how to give back to my community,” said Kohlmeier. The softball team recently ran out of funding, and Kohlmeier hopes that this project will help improve the program overall, despite the small budget.

Ethan Ashbeck will be learning to play guitar, writing and recording an album, and performing at the local Oma coffeeshop. Ashbeck hopes to learn important musical skills involving composing music and playing in front of an audience. “Not only will I learn many things, but I will be able to give back to the community by playing,” said Ashbeck. This project won’t be completed without a challenge, however. “I think the hardest part will be recording the album,” said Ashbeck. Though this project will require dedication and effort, Ashbeck stated he is “very excited to get started!”

Involved drama department member Samantha Kothari plans to reorganize the drama department’s prop room. The room itself is small and cluttered at the moment, and Kothari hopes to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. “I hope that my SEP will benefit the theatre community by providing them with much easier access to their props,” said Kothari. She also hopes that the project will help her learn along the way, too.  “I hope to learn not how to become a more organized person, but learn the benefits of an organized life,” said Kothari. “I know it will be tough, but in the end it will be worth it!”

SEPs can be a challenge, and they certainly require a lot of time and hard work. However, these projects can also be an exciting way to take a step out of one’s comfort zone. From building storage room shelves to learning guitar, the SEP is a world of possibilities.
