As we approach the last corner of the race towards graduation, we look back on our last 12 years of school and all the friends that we’ve made, as well as lost, along the way. With less than a month until graduation, the stress is high, but the excitement is higher. Whether you’re going to school next year, enlisting in the military, or just working, everyone at TRHS is proud of all you’ve accomplished and look forward to seeing how you’re going to use all the skills and knowledge that you’ve acquired in the future. “High school has prepared me by teaching me to be responsible because in high school you’re forced to learn how to do things yourself,” said senior Rylee Menz.

It’s a bittersweet ending. After years of all nighters with friends you’ve grown up with, you’re now forced to go into the real world and live as an adult. If you haven’t done it already, you have to get a job. You may still have many more years of school left, but you have to find a balance between school and work. You have to meet people and make friends. Right now, your friends are your childhood friends, and they will always hold a special place in your heart, but as we grow up, we’re forced to make new friends who will help us grow along the way, as childhood friends have. “I hope to remain friends with the friends that I have here. I know that we won’t live within five miles of each other anymore, but I have hope that we’ll remain friends,” said senior Alexus Keen.

Although the saying “Don’t ever look back” is popularized, I believe that it’s crucial to look back along the way. In time, we’ll all have families of our own and live in different parts of the country or even the world, but we must never forget where we came from or the people who have helped us along the way. As we start this new chapter in our life, we must not forget the memories that we’ve made along the way. Whether you were crowned prom queen or spent your formative years with your nose in a book, the community looks forward to seeing the impact that you will have on the world.
