Tearful goodbyes, hugs and more tears were seen on Wednesday, April 24 as the clock struck 3 p.m. on Robinson’s campus concluding the IB Seniors last day of school.

With hallways full, upstairs and downstairs, students awaited the arrival of the IB seniors who celebrated their official last day of school by participating in spirit day wearing their college shirts. The bittersweet goodbye consisted of Principal Dave Brown offering each senior his congratulations and the marching band leading them out. As the seniors passed by, all their favorite underclassmen crowded the halls and lined the railings to cheer them on, equipped with colorful hand made posters.

While it was their last day, IB seniors in the coming weeks will be completing their IB exams off campus which began on April 25 and conclude May 17. They will reconvene at the Florida State Fairgrounds Saturday, May 25 for graduation.

As the final echoes of applause faded away and the last hugs were exchanged, the IB seniors left through the school gates, ready to embrace the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.

About the Contributors
Yesenia Rosario
Yesenia Rosario, News & Features Editor
Yesenia Rosario is a junior at Robinson and the News & Features Editor of  Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff and her first year as an editor.  Rosario has a deep fondness for the community that journalism has built for her, leading her to return to the staff for a second year.  "What brings me back is the community and the work, it’s very great. It’s very easy but fun at the same time," Rosario said.  Although busy with her academics, Rosario manages to find time for hobbies; she especially enjoys baking and being with friends. Rosario also appreciates a wide variety of media, particularly the essence of Jordan Peele's movies. Currently, “Coraline” is ranked as one of her favorite movies due to its more dark and irreverent tone.  “It's not that I don't lean over any other genres of movies, it's just that I think that thrillers and creepy movies have you on the edge of your seat more, they could be more interesting," Rosario said. "More can be done with a lesser timeframe, rather than like two-hour movies, and though they're good, they're pretty lengthy, so I think that horror and thriller movies have so much content in a short amount of time." Being a movie and music enthusiast, her favorite section to write is A&E. She often finds herself gravitating towards sections that allow her to editorialize.  “I prefer writing album reviews over any other, because it's something I enjoy writing about and giving my opinion on and it gives me a reason to listen to music for fun, rather than having to write lengthy feature stories or any informative story that aren't as fun to write," Rosario said.  Rosario hopes that her love for writing will continue to play a role in her future, even after high school. “One of the reasons I like journalism is that you’re able to choose and write about what you’d like and I think that’s pretty cool," Rosario said.  Profile by (Jordan De La Cruz)

Jasmyn Mitchner is a sophomore at Robinson and is a staff writer for Knight Writers. This is her first year on staff. As her first year in newspaper, Mitchner looks forward to writing stories and is hoping to improve her photography skills this year. "English has always been my favorite subject because I like to write essays about things I'm passionate about and I love poetry as well," Mitchner said. Mitchner is involved in clubs and sports at Robinson. She is the class representative of PTSA and is a general member of the Student Government Association (SGA). Mitchner also plays soccer and flag football for the school. She is planning on going to college after high school and going into the health field. "I am passionate about sports and helping people. So, I want to go to college for soccer and study nursing to one day become a neonatal nurse," Mitchner said. Last year, Mitchner tied the record for the highest goal scorer in Robinson's soccer history as a freshman. Mitchner likes to not only play sports in her free time, but also likes to hang out with friends and enjoys listening and singing music. "I like to listen to old R&B; I love the songs Candy Rain and I love listening to Drake and SZA. Also, I like going to concerts like Busta Rhymes and 50 Cent," Mitchner said.
