Coming into high school, I stood tall amongst my classmates at a whopping height of five feet six five inches, I also only weighed 99 pounds. It is safe to say that I was immature at best. The strong morals I was taught from family, teachers, and peers began to gel together, the more I grew physically and mentally. Eventually, I was beginning to harden and see myself where I am currently. A proud student of Lakewood High School and a future Sailor of the United States Navy.

Great people and great memories surround me and will continue to because of the passion and hard work that so many of us possess. My time on the cross-country team has brought me endless joy and unrivaled work ethic. A memory that will forever stick out is my 2019 McQuaid trip. All of my friends in the woods, cabin camping, sitting next to a bonfire, telling stories and playing manhunt. I will never forget those teammates and the memories they gave me.

Four years has never gone by so fast, Lakewood high school holds more than the eye can see. It is building that holds hundreds of argumentative and ill-tempered teens that somehow seem like they get along and occasionally call each other friends. I am beyond happy to be able and look back and see what this school has done for me. Thank you, LHS. “The unexamined life is not worth living.” ― Socrates.  Looking back these will be some of my fondest memories.
