Feb. 8, 2018 — Skutt Catholic’s Class of 2018 has chosen their Senior Studies topics for their class project, starting a three month odyssey that culminates in a presentation by each student in May. Students chose from a myriad of different topics pertaining to social justice, including abortion and rights for the poor and vulnerable

Senior Studies combines government and theology, with a focus on different political, economic and social issues impacting the world today. Seniors learn about different themes including poverty, discrimination and violence. They also learn how to apply what they learn to future experiences in college and beyond.

Choosing a topic is a stressful experience, senior DJ Peatrowsky believes. Students each pick a number from a hat which designates their position in the topic selection queue. Peatrowsky was 54th out of 55 students in his block. “I still got the topic I wanted,” he said.

Others weren’t so fortunate. “I got a topic that was related to my initial one, so it wasn’t all that bad,” Nick Martin said.

Faculty members who teach the course assured students that their projects all have potential to be succesful, regardless of topic. Last week, Mr. Bart Zavaletta, teacher of the theology portion of the course, reminded his class, “Every year, it all works out, even for the person who picks the very last.”
