A Reflection

By Shelby Burrow THE JACKET


did not cry on graduation night. I already did that on the drive to work my last day of school. I decided it wasn’t sad, it was bittersweet. The only sadness I felt was a week prior when I walked out of school for the last time and realized that I really did enjoy high school. I was happy with the person I was leaving after the last bell, so I was content with the person I was walking across the stage to receive my diploma. I believe that had to do with he choices I made while I was still in high school and felt like it was an eternity before I walked the stage. So I made graduation a day of excitement and a time to reflect on the wonderful times. It wasn’t until the music started playing and we walked out in pairs that I let myself feel how real it was, before I had only sat in the crowd to see those before me. This time I was the one wearing the cap and gown. Being the people watcher I am, I made sure to pay attention to how my classmates were handling the ceremony. I saw some cry very hard while others had something in their step that told me they had been looking forward to that day for a very long time. Some seemed as if they were still trying to make it real. I tried to enjoy every word Mr. Lowery said because normally his words were the ones that started my day, but this time they were wrapping up my days at LHS. The choir brought a smile to my face, I’ve always appreciated them and this was the last time I’d show that as a student. Recognizing those who chose to make their path a service to our country was very touching and so grown up, I nearly did shed a tear in thanks. I guess when we reach milestones like graduating high school, we expect it to hit us like a truck. That did not happen for me, but maybe it happened for others. For me it was a peaceful transition. I learned many educational and life lessons during high school, but I knew good and well I would never really stop doing that. Now it’s time to learn more, but with a new set of skills I acquired through a four year span and received in the form of a diploma.


Dynasties and Dragon 2017

By Reagan Fowler THE JACKET


rom was such a success this year! So many students found themselves having a blast on the dance floor, whether or not they considered themselves much of a dancer! Our theme this year was thought of by one of our Student Council representatives, Will Richardson. He thought that Dragons and Dynasties would be such a fun theme and he was right! There were so many different varieties of snacks at Prom as well! Such as the chocolate fountain, fruits, egg rolls to go with our theme, fortune cookies, and rice crispy treats. Not to mention After Prom’s fantastic foods! I think every student could agree that the Dippin’ Dots were such a great start to an eventful night. Ali Cuglietta, a junior said “Prom was a great time! Being a junior it was my first prom ever, and really I couldn’t have imagined a better one! I look forward to going back next year! I wonder what the theme will be!” After asking a junior what they thought about the night, we asked a senior, Devin Lewis. He said “My last Prom was unforgettable and the inside looked awesome. Prom is going to be something that I will definitely miss from High School!”
