Danielle Tremblay is part of the graduating class of 2016 and is extremely excited to see what the future holds for her!

Danielle was born on February 27, 1998 to her loving parents, Debbie and Mike Tremblay. Danielle grew up on Paon Blvd in Wakefield with her two sisters Olivia and Sophia and dog, Grover. She attended St. Joseph’s for ten years of her schooling career and did not enjoy it too much because of the small numbers of kids. Danielle then came to Wakefield Memorial High School and was excited because of the larger number of students and people that she would be able to meet.

At Wakefield High School, Danielle participated in the marching band for her Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years. Danielle also helped out with the drama department for many of their plays and other productions. Playing lacrosse is something that Danielle truly loved as she played for twelve years, two of those years being for Wakefield Memorial High School. She took her passion for lacrosse further and became a coach for younger players in Wakefield. She has coached these girls for three years and also reffed lacrosse games for a year.

Outside of Wakefield Memorial High School, Danielle is always busy either spending time with her dog, writing comedy pieces with her dad, or working at one of her many jobs. She currently is a host at Chili’s, a sales associate at the Paper Store, and a receptionist at St. Joseph’s’ Parish.

Next year, Danielle will be attending Middlesex Community College and eventually transferring to The University of Massachusetts Amherst. Danielle hopes to major in broadcast journalism. When asking her about why she had chosen broadcast journalism she said, “ I have always really enjoyed public speaking and I think that it is a professional platform for that”. Danielle’s mother, Debbie, was also a sports anchor for a while which expanded Danielle’s interest. Mr. Kruszewski who has Danielle in two of his classes this year spoke highly about Danielle said, “Danielle stands out in terms of her work ethic and professionalism. She is truly a pleasure to have in class.”

Danielle has thoroughly enjoyed her time at Wakefield High School and is thankful for all of the people that she has met. She has two favorite memories from her time here. One is from her last band competition this year. It is a tradition for everyone in the band to sing “Build Me Up Buttercup”, but this year the seniors sang it alone in a smaller huddle after they sang it all together. This moment was special to Danielle and although it makes her slightly sad, she is also happy when thinking about all the great times that she had with these people. Her other favorite memory at WHS was more recently at the Senior Show. Danielle was part of many of the skits whether it be that she was in them or helped out writing them. During her News Skit that she wrote and was the anchor in Ned Buckley, a member of the class of 2016, made a guest appearance. He pretended to be the translator and it caused everyone in the audience and on stage to break out in laughter. Danielle said that “laughing with all those people was a great memory” and made the skit even more enjoyable for her. If she was to leave advice to next year’s seniors it would be, “to strive to get A’s all year so that the end of the year is a breeze and so you will get exempt from your finals.”

Danielle would like to leave her favorite quote with everyone which is by H. Jackson Brown Jr. and it says “The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.” She loves this quote because she thinks that everyone should always try their best, especially during high school to make the most of every moment.

Danielle will be truly missed at Wakefield High School by all such as junior John Stanfield who spoke about Danielle and said, “I don’t know how I will get home next year without Danielle. But seriously, she always made me laugh and I will miss that.” Everyone at Wakefield Memorial High School wishes her the best in her future endeavors.
