Four years have come and gone faster than any metaphor can truly convey. It feels slow when you’re living it, going test to test, lesson to lesson, but graduation creeps up on you and leaves you with hardly any time to reflect. It’s impossible to look back without any regrets, and most of the time I held my experience to such high expectations that I was constantly letting myself down. No high school experience can be perfect, but with only 3 months separating me from college, I find myself growing increasingly appreciative of everything that I learned at RHS, especially my time as Editor-in-Chief of The Rockwall Stinger.

The Stinger has been a part of my life since my first day at RHS, and I truly believe it’s one of the best organizations that our school has to offer. Over my four years, I’ve grown close with many people, some of whom will graduate with me, and others who have already left RHS, or will remain on staff after I leave. This organization has forged friendships that I’ll be eternally grateful for and has left memories that will always make me smile. It’s become a cliche to admit that a club has become a family, but with the newspaper staff, it’s no exaggeration.

I leave this paper with over 37 articles attributed to my name, and many more that I wrote with other staff members help. I will be eternally grateful for this paper for being an outlet to express my thoughts and views over the course of my four years. All good things must come to an end, so it’s with a heavy heart that I publish my last article ever for the Rockwall Stinger. As I think about the future that awaits, I can rest easy knowing that I, and many of the other people who are leaving the staff, will continue to create for years to come, because The Stinger gave us the confidence to share our ideas.

    Rockwall Stingers really do a great job. I enjoyed the printed newspapers and the digital ones now. A lot of my friends are in this amazing group. I would love to shout out to the team that the snowball was an awesome winter gift to all RHS students. Thank you all for working so hard. Seniors! Best wishes always and forever. The stories will always continue with joy and laughter…
