Student, Northwest High School, Class of 2017,
At my modest high school in the small city of Wichita, Kansas, people like to get involved and occupy their time. I have a lot of girlfriends who strive for excellence on the cheer team. My friends greatly enjoy this hobby. Not only is it their passion but it is also a great way to grow as a person due to the fact it works off of teamwork and tolerance for others, two extremely important things in life. Another extraordinary opportunity my high school offers is cross country. Not only is there no cuts from the team but its also coed. This means students get to experience equality among genders and acceptance in a team. Last but not least the drama department is absolutely wonderful and highly recognized for being the best local theater. The young adults involved are very dedicated to productions and so is the director, Mr. Lundin. Theater is a chance to work on many communication skills while being a part of a wonderful environment.
