Designed by Simrit Kaur, the senior shirt works as a unifying force, helping to identify all of the seniors who wear it to the rest of the school.

For the Class of 2023, this shirt is a farewell token that holds memories for them to look back on their high school years as they move on to all that life has to offer beyond NHP Memorial.

Seniors pose in their senior shirts, showing eagerness to be matching as a class.

“The senior shirt acts as a force to unite all the seniors that are graduating this year. Everyone having the same shirt, especially with everyone’s name on the back, represents the large graduating class and helps bring everyone together due to the sense of unity,” senior Taseen Tanzil said.

Seniors Edric Balgos and Birrkaren Singh display the affection they hold for their senior class.

The shirt provides many seniors with a sense of accomplishment, serving as a reminder of their time spent at New Hyde Park Memorial, with many coming in as seventh graders and remaining until their senior year.

“It feels nice to finally be a senior and have the senior t-shirt! You get to see other people having the same shirt and you realize how far we’ve all come over the last seven years,” senior Kushpreet Ahuja said.

While the senior shirt serves as a reminder of the past, it also acts as an agent of the future, providing the seniors with motivation and hope for all that is to come. By wearing the shirt, many are reminded of their accomplishments and encouraged to reach for even greater success in the future.
