Mr. Johnson, he was my 8th grade teacher and moved to the high school with my class, he was always my go to teacher.

Not having to wear masks for the first 3 years of my high school career! I could breathe and be with my friends, without having to be yelled out for being too close together.

Being ineligible for one softball game my freshman year, moral of the story, get your work done on Thursdays!

Hangout in the hallways before the homeroom bell rings. It was a good place to socialize with my friends before they left for CIT.

I hope I’m somewhere down south, playing softball and taking care of my farm animals. That would be the dream life.

Which event, events will you miss the most and why?
I’ll miss having prom and different dances, mainly because they were the only reason to get dressed up and just take a night for yourself.

What is your favorite quote to live by and why?
“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.”- Ayn Rand. This has been my quote since freshman year in Mrs. Fullwood’s class. This has really taught me to be confident because most people don’t tend to question you if you act like you know what you’re doing. Not letting other people’s opinion sway you and change your direction is also really important.
