Senior newspaper members reflect on high school years: Alyssa Ferrell

Looking back on freshman year, I would have never thought this is where I would be. When I think back on high school, I think about all of the great friends, sports meets and crazy football games. I also think about all the late nights, lost friends and stressing out about tests, but I wouldn’t change a thing. High school has taught me so many lessons that I will carry with me wherever I end up. 

Over the years, I have tried many new things like cross country, track and newspaper. All of these have taught me different lessons and made new friends who have affected my life in a positive way. Some of my favorite memories are from sports and the bonds that were created like running across an entire field just to support your team, or leaving for a meet and all of the guys blasting “California girls” through the bus. 

After high school, I will be moving out and attending Butler for two years then Pitt State after that to finish my degree for physical therapy. Hopefully in the meantime, I will have an assistant job close to physical therapy until I have a degree. 

The one thing I will never forget about high school is to always be yourself and do what makes you happy.
