Senior Goodbye: Rachael Kluba

Rachael Kluba, Staff Reporter

Four years. It seems like a long time, it sometimes feels like a long time, but when you take a second to step back and look at what you have done throughout your whole life, you understand just how short four years really can be. I am eighteen years old right now and I have done more in the last four years then my last eighteen. High school gives you an opportunity to learn new subjects, gain new perspectives, meet new people, but most importantly find out the type of person you are and want to become.

The high school years are the ones where you grow up the most. You need to learn in four years how to go from being a kid in middle school playing kickball and wearing braces to being an adult in college and bracing for the realities of living on your own and forming a life beyond the one you grew so accustomed to, which includes the multiple AP classes, hours of homework and timeless practices.

While in high school, I have gained friends I will never lose, teachers I will never forget, teams I can never leave and a sense of family that can never falter. RB has become a place where I learned who I am and who I want to be, it has put me on a path that I know will lead me to the future all kids dream of, while eating watermelon and enjoying the sun.

Without the choices I have made and the experiences I have gained while attending RB, I would not be the person I am today, so I want to take a second to say, “Thank You” to this community for supporting me through a tough transition that has ultimately determined who I am.
