THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 7 SHS | from page 5 people you can talk to. Students respect them. They’re more than what they were hired for. But I don’t think they mean a lot for our school offi cials. Q: So, what about the privatization thing. A: I personally don’t agree with it because of what I just said. I think custodians are more than that. Seven Greer has been a student president of his class at Saugus High School for three years. Seven, 18, plans to attend the University of Massachusetts in Lowell in the fall. He is a Saugus native and the son of Matt and Wendy Greer. Seven’s sister Nova is a freshman at Saugus High. His brother Anoki is a sixth grader at the Belmonte Middle School. His sister Taylor Perry is a 2012 graduate of the University of Vermont. Seven has been a member of the Drama Club for three years, the Debating Club and the Improv Troupe. Q: When you look back on the last four years, what do you consider the biggest accomplishment of this class? A: I think our fl exibility in everything that’s been changing over our 12 years here. It’s been a huge period of change for Saugus. We dealt with construction backup at Belmonte [Middle School], and our classrooms were switched around – now the construction up at Saugus High School. We’ve kind of just rolled with the punches and succeeded, nonetheless, so I think that’s our biggest accomplishment – going with the fl ow, in essence. Q: What would you say to sum up the 2019 Saugus High School graduating class? What makes it special? A: Our passion; everything we do, we put 110 percent into it, whether it’s athletics or the arts, theatre, our academics. Whether we are good at it or not, we put 110 percent. There’s a lot of passion in everything we do; there’s a lot of drive to succeed for sure. Q: What about your proudest individual accomplishment? A: Probably pulling off this week – Senior Week – being president for the past three years. That leads up to this, the culmination of all of the work. It’s hardly an individual accomplishment because I’ve had so much help along the way. Q: So, you’ve been president for three years. What about as a freshman? A: Freshman year, I wasn’t involved at all. I was kind of like “Screw that,” you know. I decided I would make the most of my time here and then decided to run at the end of that year, and it’s been a lot of fun. Q: What are you going to do with yourself after Friday night? A: I’m going to take some wellneeded relaxation time. I feel like I have worked pretty hard this year. I know I’m going to work 10 times harder next year, so I’m going to kick it. Q: Do you have any specifi c career goals? A: I’m leaving my options open. There’s a lot I can do in the environmental science fi eld. I might go into fi eld research: being out in the fi eld as an environmental scientist Q: Now what are you going to do with yourself when you www.reverealuminumwindow.com Friday, May 31 at 7:30 PM Singing all the Hits...

How are you going to use what you got in four years here? What do you consider the biggest thing you walk away from at Saugus High School, as a graduate? A: I think I’ve learned a lot about making the most of a situation. I think I’ve done a really good job, making the most of what I’ve got, and I think that will be super valuable for the rest of my life. Q: What was the biggest challenge for you for the last four years? A: Probably choosing a college. It’s super hard – just making that decision, even when it’s narrowed down to just two schools. There are so many things you have to take into consideration, and it can get pretty discouraging at times – the whole search. Q: Anything else you would like to share? A: Just that I’m wicked proud of everyone in this class. We’ve accomplished a lot, even in the face of adversity. I’m very proud. Q: So, what kind of message are you going to stress in your speech? A: I want to focus on the bright future of this class. Q: Anything that you want to mention or talk about? A: I think that about covers that. Q: Are you getting involved in the local government? Is that something you would get involved in? A: I would, yeah. Q: Town Meeting and selectmen? A: Sure. I think the town is headed in a good direction, and, for college, I’ll still be local. Q: Any views on the custodians? A: All I’m going to say: I love our custodians. I think they are great. I’m friends with a few of them. They’re great people. Whatever happens, I hope they end up in good places, because they are good people; they’re good people. Q: So, you are neutral on the question on whether to privatize or not? A: I’ll stay neutral.
