765 graduates set to walk stage June 1

The time has come for the class of 2024 to prepare for graduation. Cypress Creek’s 765 graduates will walk across the Berry Center stage to earn their diplomas June 1 at 1 p.m., and Teachers William “Buck” Lally, Julie Markwood, Emily Bryson, and Dr. Janelle Hall will read out the names of the graduates.

Senior speaker Marcus Robinson will open graduation, followed by an address from senior Jenna Mi Tran, and graduation remarks will be closed by senior Milagros Nuñez Portillo.

Seniors balance many responsibilities but also have lots of fun and many memories to make. Events including senior sunrise, senior breakfast, and even football games were among senior favorites this year.

“My favorite memory from senior year is getting to win Homecoming queen with my best friend, David [Pacleb],” senior Shirley Nguyen said.

Seniors have had quite an eventful year with school events, social events, and many club events. And though it was hard, graduating seniors will proudly walk across the stage and receive their much-earned diplomas.

Balancing school and extracurriculars has been the challenge for many senior students, but Stacy Truong, a Silvie Colonel, has managed to make it work.

“It was a learning experience trying to balance being Colonel and my schoolwork, but I was able to balance it well,” Truong said. “A word I’d use to describe my senior year is ‘noteworthy’ because it’s my last year of high school and there’ve been so many memories that I’ve made – good and bad.”

With many events hosted by Silvies this year, Stacy was quite busy but schoolwork never went away, so she managed to find a way to make it all fall in line and balance things out.

“My favorite memory from senior year was competing in MCC [Mr. Cy Creek] with David [Pacleb],” Truong said.

MCC was quite a favorite event this year, with senior Jamar Williams also naming it as his favorite and most memorable moment this year.

“I’ve been involved in a lot of things this year. I unlocked an old talent that I kept hidden from the world for a long time – that talent being dance. But it felt nice to be able to show the world what I can do again. Yeah, that was my favorite memory,” Williams said.

Seniors have gotten to do a lot this year, and make many memories, but this is just the beginning, and soon they’ll be off to make even more.
