One last run as a cowboy!

2024 farewell week

    As we come up into the last few weeks of school it is now time to give honor to our seniors. The class of 2024 has a total of 230 students. All of which have their own stories, trials, and experiences here at GHS. We hope to make their last week here the best of it all by designating a week just for them. This week is called farewell week; this week is to honor and say goodbye to our seniors, but is also for everyone to enjoy. There is a variety of activities including; Monday 13th, chalk fight, Tuesday 14th, Senior day and Seminary dinner (seniors only), Wednesday 15th, Cornhole and spikeball, Thursday 16th SENIOR SLUFF DAY at lagoon (seniors only), Friday 17th, Farewell assembly, yearbook signing, and senior sunset, Lastly we have Saturday 18th, farewell formal at the Ivy House which everyone can attend. 

    SBO president Tylie Hancock explains her mixed feelings towards her last week of highschool, “At one point, I couldn’t be more excited to have a bunch of activities with the school again. It’s finally warm enough to do activities outside! But at another point, I know this is celebrating my end. I’ve always loved farewell week; It meant summer was here and school was over, but this time it feels a little different. Now I’m kinda wishing farewell week wasn’t so soon.” 

While other students are excited for the end of the year and can’t wait! Theater and LIA president, Carissa Luna-Trujillo explains her excitement towards the end of the year and farewell week, “I am super excited for farewell week and I am glad it is my last one because it will be more sentimental.” 

Each 230 students have had a different experience, all should be recognized from the ones who loved high school to the ones who struggled. Tylie Hancock’s experience,” has truly been the best 4 years, everytime I think of graduation I end up in tears.” While others have had the opposite experience. Sierra Nickell explains her struggle with school. “My experience at GHS has been rough. I struggled a lot with high school and sports, graduation can’t come soon enough!”

About the Contributor
Olivia Richardson
Doing anything by herself was hard. Going up the stairs was almost impossible. Going down was a little easier. She sat on the top step. She set her crutches by her side and started the slow descent. Sliding down step by step. After only a few steps she stopped. Olivia Richardson couldn’t take it anymore. The initial knee injury was hard, but the fact that she had had to get surgery and now couldn’t walk on it was even harder. So was the fact that no matter what no one understood what it was like. To not be able to do the things she loved. To not be able to even just practice with her volleyball team no matter how hard that practice was. Volleyball was a part of her.   Liv had broken multiple parts of her knee. Tripping over a hurdle at a track meet had started this painful process, and was continued as her knee cap popped out of place at every volleyball practice. She had been through surgery, and grueling physical therapy that pushed her to her limits each and every time. She worked hard. She pushed through the pain, and at times it was constant. She was doing it for her team. She was doing it for her body. But most of all she was doing it for herself! She was the one who was going to come out on top. Then she could prove to them what she could do.    Liv stood on the volleyball court. Varsity player. An asset to the team. She had come so far. Looking around she was filled with gratitude for the simple things she had taken for granted before. “Volleyball has given me opportunities to meet new people and travel” Liv said. She cherishes all the memories she makes with her team and she knows they will be there for her and in return she wants to be there for them when they go through hard times.   Now she understands what it’s like to feel alone. What it was like for no one to understand how you feel. Also what it’s like to come out on top. To get through the hard times. Olivia Richardson had won!
