Dear Arab and Brindlee Mountain high school seniors and their parents.

Back on Aug. 14, in this very spot, I wrote the following in a headline – “Seniors, please don’t wish away this school year.”

Yes, that was four months ago.

Come this Friday, your senior year of high school is halfway over.

That’s right. Halfway over.

In August, I wrote that you can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel that has been your 13 years of education. You are just nine short months away from walking across the football field and getting your high school diploma from your principal.

Now, you’re just four and a half months away because your senior year is halfway over.

I also warned you: “If you seniors don’t listen to anything else, and, let’s face it, you have a lot to listen to this year, please heed this advice.

“Don’t wish your senior year away.

“Don’t let your rush to get out of high school and into the work force or into college cause you to forget to enjoy your senior year of high school.”

Did you listen?

Did you heed that advice?

In August, I wrote: “Trust us – your senior year will be over before you know it.
