Welcome to the final episode of season 4. Fittingly, Dr. Wyndham wraps up the season by celebrating the class of '24.

They talk about how their experiences at AHS have prepared them for the future, their fondest memories, how we could improve, their plans for life after graduation, and much more. It is exciting to hear from these students, to see how prepared they are for their futures, and to celebrate with them as they prepare to cross the stage at commencement on May 24. To Aubrey, Nate, AJ, and the rest of the class of '24, we are proud of you. Go Orioles!
