Class of 2019: Six-Word Memoirs

"For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

Ernest Hemingway told his readers an entire story in six short words, and decades later we are asking the class of 2019 to do describe their CMC experience the very same way. They came up with fun, unique quotes that define themselves and their lives so far.

Here they are!
