MHS Senior: 'No One’s Ever Going To Give Anything To You'

Senior Christine Hill looks back on the rewards of being a class officer and putting in 100 percent effort, but she won't miss "the busy work."

 (MHS) will celebrate commencement at 6:30 p.m. next Tuesday, June 19, graduating about 330 seniors.

All this week, Moorestown Patch will provide short profiles of a group of graduates: where they're attending college, their fondest memory from MHS and what they'll miss most (and least) about being high school students. 


Name: Christine Hill

Age: 18

Activities: Class Officer, member of S.U.D.S. (Students United for Driving Sober), Honor and Service Society Member, member of the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team, Pre-Rally Co-Chair, helped to organize

College: George Washington University

Intended Major: Biology

Career Interest: I am not positive what I want to do as a career, but whatever it is I want to be doing something I enjoy and will make a difference in the world.

Fondest Memory from High School: Gosh, I’ve been really fortunate to have a lot through my high school career, especially because I’ve been a class officer, so I’ve been involved in a lot of really cool things. I definitely think Color Clash is up there … . It’s really awesome to put in all that hard work and really see it come to fruition. Something beyond that as well that I’ll never forget was from soccer this fall. We were very fortunate in our season and , and . We did not win, but I think we put up a valiant effort … That was something very special. It was a really special group of girls.

Most Important Thing You Learned at High School: Definitely hard work. You can’t get through life and be successful without working hard. No one’s ever going to give anything to you and a lot of high school is figuring that out … If you’re going to do something, do it 100 percent and do it the best that you can. And, just enjoy it. Talking to people, looking back over four years, I’m just like, “Oh my gosh, where did it all go?” There are definitely times, like during junior year … where you’re like, “Get me the heck out of this school.” But sometimes the most stressful times are the ones you’ll end up remembering the best.

What You’ll Miss Most: There’s a lot of things … Being a class officer, I can’t speak highly enough about the other officers that I worked with. We had a great group, that we worked really, really well together, and I think highlighted each other’s good qualities … Those are your friends, those are the kids you spend so much time with.

What You’ll Miss Least: The busy work. That’s what I hope will be the difference between this and college, is that sometimes you do kind of get bogged down with work that it’s just kind of busy work in some classes.
