Coiner spoke about the trials of a senior year marked by events beyond the control of students and staff. “That may seem like a large list of things we have lost and things we will never get to experience again, but that is where perspective comes in,” she said. “From this we learned that we must cherish the little things, work harder for the things that we want, and appreciate everything at every given moment.” (Photo by Michael Erb)
