Keep a Good Taste In your Mouth

Well, this is it. This is officially the last "Beyond Today" article I will be writing as a high school senior. I am really grateful for all the people who have been following the column throughout the school year. It is really great to see so many people who appreciate hearing the younger generation write about "anything and everything!"

In the very first article I wrote for the Fillmore County Journal, I touched on the topic of how I was beginning a new chapter in my life. This was the situation for many seniors my age. Now this chapter is coming to a close, and I have only eleven days of school left (yes, I am counting!) before ending my high school career.

I have mixed feelings about graduating from Lanesboro High School in these few short days. On one hand, I am excited because nine months of school is a very long time. Most students will stand with me in verifying this fact. I am also excited to move on to a summer job and doing some FFA activities this summer, as well as spending some time with my closest friends. This fall I will go to the Twin Cities to attend the University of Minnesota where I plan to be involved in FFA, the U’s dairy club, and maybe play a little golf in my spare time. As you can see, I have a lot to look forward to.

I also have a lot to look back on. I started life more than seventeen years ago. I have learned so much in these precious years of my childhood that I wouldn’t change for the world. I consider myself very blessed to have had two parents who dedicated their lives to raising my siblings and me the right way. I also feel lucky to have lived in a community of people who care about the youth. I couldn’t have asked to graduate from a better school system or to graduate with anyone else besides thirty-one of my best friends.

One fact that many people don’t realize is that growing up in a small community is so much different than living in other places. I realize I’m not an authority on the issue because I have not yet had the experience of living in a city. Nevertheless, I have realized that here, everyone cares about everyone else. I couldn’t go to a big city to find a math and sciences class where there are three students per teacher. The list of advantages in a small community goes on and on. In fact, teachers here know each student on such a personal level that they have made it their goal to help students achieve.

One of my favorite teachers in the .....

My father was a mathematical marvel. He could figure stuff out in his head faster and more accurately than anybody I ever knew. I dare say I did not inherit either his good common sense or his ability to figure. That is not .....

Monday, April 30, 2001

“The only thing the county board is concerned about are roads,” one person commented to me a few weeks ago.

And the way in which she said this implied that this was not necessarily a good thing.
