I did it! Wednesday evening was my high school graduation! I was the banner-bearer of the flag for my academy.
I wasn’t the valedictorian by any means but to my surprise, I did have the most honors out of everyone in the graduating class!
I felt funny wearing everything because I genuinely didn’t want to show off. I had tassels from the National Honor Society, the National Technical Honor Society, and SkillsUSA. I had three medals from my three SkillsUSA competitions. Plus, I threw on my gold Key Club name badge because it means so much to me.
While I was hesitant to put everything on, I thought about it, and hey! I put a lot of time and effort into the things I did throughout high school. Graduation was my chance to be recognized for it.
I put everything on and made the best of it. I was proud to be one of the ones with the most things on. If nothing else, it signals that I made the most of my four years in high school.
