Senior contributing writer Will Conerly takes time to look at the camera while previously working diligently on his computer during fifth hour Journalism/ECHO for an upcoming issue. Senior Tyler Coleman, who sits next to him is exploring his computer and calls Conerly, ” a great writer, and an even better person,”
It’s hard to start on a reflection of high school. I vividly remember the first day of freshman year, and now I’m embarking on graduation.
Throughout all these days, months and years, I’ve learned that there are many options for Webster students. There are many paths you can take. I challenge whoever may be reading this to take the road less traveled when you come to a crossing. Many people conform to the common localities, which is something I believe I did not do, and don’t recommend anyone to do.
If you have an opinion, you can speak your mind. I truly feel sorry for people who don’t believe that hard work doesn’t equal success. It is nothing personal; it’s just a mindset I have. I’m not the brightest, but I always maintained high grades.
You get what you work for, and you can work hard in silence and let your success be your noise. However, I may be embellishing a mixed message because conformity in the application of something, typically that which is necessary for the sake of logic, accuracy, or fairness, is called consistency.
I think the biggest challenge is to continue on the same path. I think it’s easy to become complacent from the success you’ve had, so pick a path, go down that path and explore as much as you can at your journey at Webster.
If something doesn’t challenge you, it probably will not change you, so take on any challenge or fear, and you will have memories to last a lifetime.
The ones who succeed are the ones who usually don’t give up. People who want something will find a way; people who don’t will find an excuse.
Have fun. High School is cool. Go Statesmen. Come on you boys in orange. To all athletes: try to win State or score a game winning goal (Antoine Givens), and you will for sure get interviewed by the ECHO and possibly other more prestigious newspapers.
