Senior Alyssa Valdez is a senior at SHS. She got her senior pictures taken in downtown Saint Cloud.

Another lovely Senior in the Sartell school district is Alyssa Valdez. She is more than ready for her plans next year and heading into this new chapter in life. 

When asked by Valdez if she was thinking about her future she says that she has been thinking about a lot, and she has been going back and forth about what she wants to do and where she wants to pursue these dreams.

With that being said, she finally decided that she will be attending St.Cloud Technical College in the fall of 2023, stay there for two years then cross the river to Wisconsin and attend the University of Wisconsin-River Falls or St.Cloud State.

With those exciting new plans for her future, she plans on being an elementary school teacher! Valdez would ideally like to teach 3rd or 4th graders. 

In all of her high school years, Valdez says that senior year has by far been the best one yet. She has learned many lessons, grown as a person, and had so many new experiences. Her classes are really easy, and she enjoys all of them! 

It’s all coming to an end so quickly but the Sartell seniors are more than happy to leave this place in the rearview mirror as they head into another life.
