Senior Goodbye: Jimmy Nolter
May 19, 2015
For the short time that I have been at RB, I have met many people, learned many lessons, and had fun.
Ultimately, though, the lessons that I learned were not in the classroom, but with the students. I can honestly say that I am glad I went to RB. The teachers are awesome, and I met all different kinds of students. The people here are great to be around, students and teachers alike.
I learned the most by taking all AP’s. It was not easy. There were many long nights with no sleep, but I had help from many different students. Kids are not just in it for themselves. They will help others in any way they can. The atmosphere at RB is a rare one.
If there is any one thing I will miss, it is sports. I have participated in sports for three out of my four years, and focused on academics in my senior year. I played a variety of sports – football, wrestling, and cross country – and learned an important lesson about what it means to be a part of something bigger than yourself.
RB was a good platform to acquire the skills necessary for college. I will miss writing for Clarion, surely, but I know that college will be another amazing life experience.
To all of you that I befriended, farewell and enjoy the next chapter of your lives. It’s going to be fun seeing where you all end up.
