Senior Project Preview
by The Milton Measure on Friday, February 10th, 2012
In May, seniors have one obligation: a senior project. They have already begun submitting proposals that outline in detail both their interests and final presentations. With applications completed, seniors are free to design their own curriculum and focus on their individual interests.
Sophie Hoffman (I) played on many Milton teams and is captain of the Girls Varsity Squash Team. However, there is one sport she will attempt for the first time this May: crew. Milton does not offer crew as a sport and, thus, Sophie has not had the opportunity to explore it. Sophie also plans to build upon her dance education at Milton by learning Latin dance. Bubba Funso (I) and Pablo Royo (I), less experienced in this domain, plan to collaborate with Sophie.
Robin Chakrabarti (I) is an accomplished bass player, admired for his performances at Beatnik with Brandon Daly (I) and Jay Sharma (I). The group plans to use the month to write and record songs, creating some really impressive music while keeping true to their signature all-instrumental tone. Robin, in addition, hopes to create a different musical sound with the help of Cydney Grannan (I). The duo hopes to use a combination of piano, rap, and spoken word to create a unique performance.
Other seniors are choosing off-campus projects. Ben Toulotte (I) has been playing soccer his whole life, and was an integral member of the resurgent Boys Varsity Soccer Team this past fall. Ben’s love for the sport helped him land an internship with the New England Revolution, the region’s professional soccer franchise. He will spend the month of May attending to the team’s needs as a new Major League Soccer campaign begins.
Jesse Francese (I) also plans to leave Milton to complete his senior project. In his three years at Milton, Jesse has proven his talent in trumpeting. While at Berklee College of Music, Jesse hopes to pick up a few pointers from equally talented musicians.
A remarkable class of students is set to graduate this June. Seniors are approaching their final assignment ambitiously, desiring to grow from their experience and make their last mark on the Milton community.
