My High School Experience

Senior Kelsie Anderson reflects on her time at TJHS.

Kelsie Anderson, Reporter

People always told me that high school goes by really fast and that I have to enjoy it while I can. I can say that I’ve met lots of great people over these past four years and it’s really hard to leave TJ behind. For me, time went by the most this year than the previous three.

I regret not making the most out of every moment because now that I’m graduating, I feel like I don’t have enough time to say bye to everyone.

Signing my name on the wall of the journalism studio for the class of 2021, next to the previous classes that have graduated, made me feel sad but it’s nice to know that my name will stay there for future students to see.

I’d like to thank Mr. Lindquist for being an amazing teacher. He cares about his students a lot and always makes jokes with us. I’m going to miss being in Newspaper, it was the best part of going to high school every day.

It’s a big accomplishment for me and everyone else in the class of 2021 to be getting the opportunity to walk across the stage and earn our high school diplomas. Many of us will travel to different states for college, and it will be the last day that we’re all together.

I’d like to say to the class of 2021 that I hope we all pursue things that will make us happy later in life, and that we remember TJ as a place that helped us become who we are.

Thank you for the fun memories and an amazing high school experience. I’m surely going to miss TJ.

I’d like to end this story with a quote by Edward Kochor for the class of 2021.

“The fireworks begin today. Each diploma is a lighted match. Each one of you is a fuse.”
