Class of ’11 needs to step up to seniority

While many Brophy students wonder what handbook-defying shenanigans the seniors in the class of 2010 will orchestrate next, a concerned minority frets about something with bigger implications than a Saturday JUG: Can the class of 2011 effectively assume the gap in leadership, school spirit and unity that will be left by the departing seniors?
