Today I am feeling really old. Not only did I turn 30 this year but my little nephew (not so little at 6 ft. 5 in. and 230 pounds) graduated from High School yesterday. I remember the day he was born and now he is going off to college! So, I sat him down along with another high school graduate and asked them about their high school experience and what they have planned for the future.
Graduate #1: Remington
1. What is your fondest high school memory? All of my sports victories. Specifically the state championship for basketball and football.
2. Do you feel like your high school classes were challenging? Yes. Only because I took honors classes and they were hard. My other classes were not so challenging.
3. Will you attend college? Yes, Brigham Young University in Provo Utah.
4. Do you have a scholarship or financial aid? Yes, a full ride football scholarship for 6 years.
5. Have you decided on a major yet? No, I will focus on general studies for my first year.
6. Do you plan on continuing on past a Bachelor’s degree? Yes. My scholarship is for 6 years so I will probably go beyond a bachelors.
7. What do you think you will enjoy most about college? Football!
Graduate #2: Jadan
1. What is your fondest high school memory? Participating in Silver Rush. It is a school wide service project. This year we raised money to help a local domestic violence shelter. It was the most fun I’ve ever had.
2. Do you feel like your high school classes were challenging? Not the classes my senior year. I took all of my hard required classes my junior year as a head start so I could just relax my senior year!
3. Will you attend college? Yes, but I am not sure where yet.
4. Do you have a scholarship or financial aid? Not yet.
5. Have you decided on a major yet? I want to own my own business so I’ll probably major is business but I like photo journalsim too.
6. Do you plan on continuing past your Bachelor’s degree? Probably not.
7. What do you think you will enjoy most about college? The independence and living on my own.
I would say that our future is looking bright with these two high school graduates. However hard it might be to see our loved ones grow up and move away I am so happy for both of these young adults that have a vision of what they want to do and who they want to become.
