No Dropouts Allowed

Written by Emily Duncan

It was no ordinary day during PRIDE time today. The class of 2019 was called to the gym for a graduation pep talk. Our guest speaker from Jostens, Scott Jernigan, took the time to encourage us to study, keep up good grades, and work hard to reach our goals. He also pointed out how much these years of high school affect the rest of our lives.

Using inspirational videos and volunteers from the audience, Mr.Jernigan showed us how important it is to graduate and follow our paths.

When asked as to why he chose to speak with us, he responded with, “It is important for everyone to receive their high school diploma so it’s worth our time and everyone’s effort to encourage our students to graduate with their class.”

So let’s follow everyone’s advice and work hard to graduate! No dropouts are allowed!
