So long LCHS

So long LCHS

As May 10th grows closer and my senior year comes to an end, I wanted to sit down and take the time to remember and cherish the memories and relationships LCHS has given me. I remember my first year in journalism was my sophomore year and I always think back to hearing all the 2022 seniors writing this letter and thinking “Wow that’s so long from now” but here I am writing mine. I never really realized how bittersweet senior year was until I became a senior. I have grown into the person I am today because of these past 4 years. 

 I would first like to thank everyone in journalism for providing me with a class to come to every day and laugh. I remember joining this class sophomore year and having no clue what I was doing. I have made so many memories and friends because of room 306. I am so sad to leave everyone and not come in every day for 4th block and have the stress of yearbook spreads and having my school family with me. Everyone has a special place in my heart and I will always cherish the memories and support given to me these past 3 years. 

I would also like to thank Mrs Wallace, for providing me with nothing but support. I have learned so much from you. You planted a seed in my sophomore year and because of that I have grown so much. 

So I sit here writing this trying to reminisce on every good moment I had these past 4 years, but sadly those moments turn into memories and this chapter in my life is ending. I do want to reflect on some of those moments that made my senior year so special. I vividly remember all of the Friday night football games and the stress of getting a good outfit to fit the themes each week. I remember getting voted on the homecoming court. That game was so special to me because I looked out into the crowd and saw all my friends cheering me on. There are numerous days and events I could go on about.  

To my dear friends, I appreciate each one of you all. We have cried, laughed, screamed, and most importantly grown. I am so proud of all of us, I know you all will do amazing things where you all go. With us going separate ways I know we will still end up at the LC sonic every once in a while. Or go on our long car drives and stop at five different fast food places. I want to express my deepest gratitude for the memories we have created together. Each moment I will cherish forever. I am excited to see all the amazing things each one of us will accomplish. So to Ellie, Shannon, Lillie, Ava, Beau, Fallon, and of course, Eli I can not wait to see where the world will take us and I love you all so much. Thank you for being the best gift high school has given me. 

LCHS is a place that will forever hold a special place in my heart. I’m sad to close an important chapter in my life but I’m eager to see the person I will grow into. I will always be a Panther 4L! Go Panthers!
