From the Bear Creek High School campus:

I wish I would have known how much I would struggle this year just because I didn’t want to do anything freshman year. — Quetzalic Gutierrez

That everything that you do effects what happens later on in your high school career. — Elijah Baidoo

Every “no” you get puts you closer to your next “yes”...Persevere! — Aaron Wyatt

I wish I would’ve known going into my freshman year that not everybody you thought was your friend is always going to be there. — Kylie Chambers

I wish I would’ve known going into my freshman year to pass all of my classes and paid more attention in school. — Nuntida Sisauat

I wish I would’ve known going into freshman year that you need to prepare for college then. — Jasmine Garrett

What you choose to do within these 4 years indicate the amount of success you’ll gain in the future. — Monica Bandy

Don’t mess around your freshman year because you will have to make up for it later on. — Mollie Ibarra:

Make a lot of memories with your friends and don’t just focus on school. — Anmol Mahal
