As I think about the upcoming school year, I cannot help but reflect on the year that has just passed. Graduation was an exciting time to watch the class of 2018 walk across the stage, receive their diplomas, and head off into the world. During the ceremony, Marcus Weimer, Senior Class Co-Valedictorian, shared his thoughts about the passing of this stage of life for the class of 2018. Marcus expressed my own thoughts and desires for the upcoming year, so I thought I would share part of his speech with you:
Even though it is smart to plan ahead for your future endeavors, it is still rewarding to live in the moment and assess what is right in front of you. We should not dwell in the future or in the past. Sometimes it is beneficial to consider looking forward and backward, but we should soak up the moments we have each and every day.
These words were echoed in a discussion with senior Melanie Correa. When asked what she would change or do differently if she could repeat high school, she stated that she would have been more involved in supporting activities as well as her fellow students.
I encourage each student to engage with the present and become involved with West Noble High School by participating in or supporting the many activities we have to offer. The four years of high school will fly by, and I want you to be able to look back with great memories of being both immersed and engaged in your high school years. So for the upcoming school year, live in the moment and make yourself a part of West Noble High School.
Dr. Gregory Baker, Principal, Mr. Mike Burke, Assistant Principal, and Mr. Chad Wilson, Assistant Principal
