After attending four different high schools and dealing with a lot of BS, I graduated with the following:
3rd in my class
Academic Excellence in a Foreign Language
YAY ME! ;)
Actually, I just graduated today. 9:30 a.m., I was lined up outside the gym. At ten, we began to file in. An hour later, I was taking pictures with my parents, brand new shiny diploma in my hand. I graduated with the Academic Honors diploma. I was in the Top 15...
students. I was eligible for the Honors Society but I missed the day the students were told to write a report about why they should be selected. I was angry; that was a scholarship in the making. College was not cheap, I wish I could fix that part of my scholastic career.
I graduated High School with Honors. I didn't do so great my freshmen year, not that it matter much, because my sophmore, junior, and senior year, I worked my *** off, and ended up graduating with good grades, and with Honors that I was very proud of.
