What’s the one thing that you have taken away from being a student/.

have aspirations of being great athletes? I would tell all future athletes that want to be great to take things seriously and work very hard for what they want.

What advice do you have for next year’s seniors? Don’t take things for granted because you never know when it can be taken from you and don’t have any regret because it flies by and you will look back and say I wish I could’ve done this or that.
