It's all about Friendships for
Chloe Barron has been a student in the Huntington School District since the day she walked into a first grade classroom at Flower Hill Primary School. Fast forward to all these years later and the teenager is preparing to graduate this Friday evening with fellow members of Huntington's Class of 2012.
"My last four years at Huntington have really given me the skills I need to take to college, while making great friends along the way," Ms. Barron said. "My experience in the Huntington School District has always been enjoyable." The teenager has been a loyal and kind friend to many and is well-liked by her classmates and teachers.
Ms. Barron participated on the varsity winter and spring track and field teams for three years. "I will always remember my track coach, Ms. [Debra] Cheskes and the friends that I made while being on the team," the senior said.
Similar to most of her classmates, Ms. Barron has her favorite courses and teachers. "I loved going to art class because of the course and I loved my teachers, Mrs. [Amy] Worth and Mrs. [Kristin] Singer," the teenager said. "I also loved my French class throughout high school and the teacher, Madame [Deirdre] Mayer."
This week, Ms. Barron and her family are hosting a pre-prom get-together for classmates at the family's home. The strong personal relationships she has formed since that first day of first grade are treasured and will provide a lifetime of memories.
"My highlights at Huntington are definitely the friendships I made and the Advanced Placement classes I challenged myself with," Ms. Barron said. The teenager plans to major in business at Towson University outside of Baltimore, "while still taking a French class," she said.
"I have known Chloe since primary school and we have remained close friends over the years," said Brielle Blatt, who is also a member of the Class of 2012. "Chloe is fun to be with and easy to talk to. She is really laid back and just tells it how it is and I respect her for that. I have no doubt she will be successful at Towson and I will miss her, although I know we will keep in touch."
Ms. Barron has a bit of advice for members of the incoming Class of 2016. "I would want incoming freshmen to know that they should enjoy their freshman year, take it seriously, but don't let the year pass you by without creating new friendships," she said.
