On top of this life-changing moment, I am given the opportunity to give a speech thanking everyone who has helped me along the way while throwing in some words of advice. The only issue is I have a time limit and too many people to thank, meaning I might have to say “thank you to my class.’ However, that would be a great disservice to my classmates because they have been amazing people.

New York has been a dream destination of mine ever since middle school, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to spend time with my friends in what seemed like such a magical place.

Embracing the EaglePosted: March 08, 2022 | Written by: Ty Wellemeyer
Sophomore Trista Browning never envisioned joining the EDS cheerleading team. However, after hearing how fun cheer was last year, Browning decided to give it a shot. Instead of taking on a traditional cheerleading role, she decided to embrace the role of Day School’s mascot, “Ed the Eagle,” to best showcase her school spirit. Lacking a consistent person dedicated to playing the mascot, Browning felt that she could fill the void. Her amazing charisma and energy were a perfect fit for the role, and cheer coaches Sarah Brooks and Tia Rogers helped prepare Browning for her debut on the sidelines....
