Name: Sasha Veliko-Shapko
Grade: 12 - Class of 2015
Previous School: Stevenson School
The past few months for me and the rest of York's Class of ’15 has mainly been dedicated to college admissions. Every year, the acceptance rate at many universities has been decreasing exponentially. However, our college counselor at York has been nothing but kind and helpful in these stressful times. She provide such great advice and guidance as we move toward college.
Despite the added responsibility of college applications, I continue to enjoy my life as a full time York student. My five classes keep me busy during the day, while varsity tennis occupies the afternoon. So far this season, York Girls' Tennis is undefeated in the league! I have had the privilege of hitting with an amazing group of tennis players this year and I can’t wait for the rest of the season. Go Falcons!
