Everyone can picture the ideal  high school experience: the perfect group of friends, football games, prom night. The whole point of going to high school is to get to that day when you’re sitting on a row of chairs, covered in green from head to toe, waiting to hear your name called so you can walk across the stage and be done for good.

At least that’s what I thought during these past four years.

LDHS has given me opportunities to move forward and on to bigger and better things. I’ve been motivated to work hard and get good grades so I can receive that acceptance letter from college, telling me I made it. We still had our Friday night football games and prom night, but being in high school has made me excited for the future and to see what comes next.

Now that I’m a senior, and I’m weeks away from sitting on that row of chairs in my cap and gown, I realize how fast time flies. My time at LDHS went by quickly, and I am appreciative of all my teachers who have helped me get this far. Now I say goodbye to this chapter of my life, and I enter the next chapter with high hopes and a positive mind.
