Stories from the Past

When my accident happened, I was 16 and a sophomore in high school. I was taking three classes (biology, math, and English) and had a study hall. In the hospital, I finished my math and English classes with the teacher that was there. It was funny because someone would bring me my math homework, and then I would not only have to learn how to do it myself but I had to teach the teacher how to use the graphing calculator in order to do the problems. English was a little easier to do because it just involved reading and analysis. I couldn't finish my biology class in the hospital because there were labs so I had to retake that one. I didn't do any more classes the rest of my sophomore year; I just focused on recovering.

I went back my junior year and ended up finishing all my required credits. I graduated on time with my class in 2005. I posted a couple of pictures from the past below.

This is my senior picture.

This is a picture of me at graduation.

This is my graduating class of 750.

When everyone gave you a standing ovation as you came up on stage (for like 10 minutes it seemed like)....I have to confess I cried like a baby. Don't you have video of it?

So proud of you.

I was crying on stage. It was very emotional. I have a video and I tried to post it but it wouldn't go. Someone made me a DVD also. We can watch it sometime. It gives me goosebumps when I see it.
