What qualities would your peers say you have? Every year at Red Lion Area Senior High School, Senior Superlatives are chosen according to what qualities pertain to different students
Recognizing students who have been at the school for four years in giving them a title as superlative is a great confidence booster as well as a final ending to their high school career. It is also a way for their peers to remember them as they move onto the next chapter of their lives.
Without recognizing students who stand out in those aspects, homecoming or prom court would not be possible. As well as team captains or lead roles in the school musical. The buzz and excitement about superlatives never fail to keep the Seniors anticipating. However, they are not always a good idea.
Many conflicts can be started when finding out who won which superlative. During this year's voting of superlatives, many people were campaigning for what they wanted to win.
In reality, people will vote for who they think deserves the title, not for the student who wants it the most. Students will be feeling very insecure once the superlatives are revealed because they may not get the one they wanted. Others may get the title that somebody else wanted, which will cause much conflict as well.
"I just think it's bad because people might get down and upset if they don't get the superlative that they wanted," said Senior Paige Taylor. "I'm just not a big fan of them, although they are definitely very fun and exciting."
In recent years, having Senior Superlatives has caused problems because of these same reasons. Senior should be chosen for a superlative based on the qualities that their peers think about them.
