Tides Prepare to Embark on New Journeys


Seniors Taryn Donohue, Ava McCall, and Samantha Griffith.

It’s the day seniors have been anticipating for years. Decision Day.

Seniors in Gig Harbor and across America got to showcase where they are going next year. Boise State, Washington State University and University of Washington were popular choices among Gig Harbor students. But it isn’t limited to just Washington and Idaho. We have students going all over America from California to Alabama. Decision day is such a great day as it showcases the students future, and the accomplishments they have achieved in there four years of high school.

Students announced where they were going through social media, wearing there college apparel to school on May 1. Gig Harbor was blessed with the opportunity to teach/coach some amazingly gift kids. This year, Gig Harbor will be sending numerous students to continue their academic career along with their athletic career at multiple universities.Some of these include: University of Eastern Washington, Southern Nazarene University, Samford University and George Fox University.

This year Gig Harbor High School seniors are graduating on June 17th at the Tacoma Dome. With only 27 days left for seniors there high school career is coming to an end, but there future is awaiting.
