Before break began, one of Pine Tree’s own left us. Sieun Gong, a PTA student since 5th grade, left Maine and returned to her home in South Korea. Sieun is an instant friend to all due to her humor, happiness, and brutal honesty. She is a great person to open up to and you can always count on Sieun for a second and true opinion. Sieun leaves behind many friends and teachers who were sad to see her go. But, we know that she is heading towards a bright future. Sieun is an extremely smart student who possesses diligence and talent and will go very far on her journey through life. We will all certainly miss Sieun but look forward to seeing her again someday. Our thoughts and prayers travel with you Sieun!
