Kelly Jurgensen, a senior from Highland Park High School in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, just learned that Adrienne Arnold, a sophomore from the nearby Chicago suburb of Deerfield, knows some of the same people as she does from back home.

Arnold replied affirmatively to two of the people, at which point Jurgensen commented, “That’s really funny,” and then the two stood near each other in awkward silence.
