As the Baylor 2017-18 school year comes to a close, the Class of 2018 seniors begin to feel the reality that their last days at Baylor are upon them. Before heading off to a week-long journey on North Carolina camping grounds, they gather on May 21 for the Senior Luncheon at Stratton Hall and Awards Day in the Baylor School Chapel to remember their classmates’ achievements one last time. On June 1, however, their final moments as a class come to a close during the commencement ceremony. While mostly everything seems to be ending, the school year consisted of many accomplishments that will last with the class for years to come.
