Anything else we should know? I just want to take the opportunity here to thank all the teachers/counselors/and staff who have helped get me to this point in my life where I’m ready to graduate from high school and begin a new chapter of my life in young adulthood. It certainly hasn’t been the most serene or straightforward four years in my life; however, at the same time, I’m willing to bet it usually never is for anyone. At the same time, they’ve arguably been the most crucial years of my life thus far from a learning perspective both in life as well as educationally and I honestly couldn’t imagine getting this far without the assistance of both my family and my educators who have helped me become the individual that I’m now. I look to the future and am not scared of the possibility of failure since I know now that shortcomings and obstacles aren’t meant to tear down or destroy individuals but are instead there to help build the foundation of a well-rounded person along with that person’s particular character; it’s lessons like this that I’ve had the privilege of learning from various different teachers throughout the years and I plan on carrying this significant information with me for now and forever.
