Humans of CHS: Graduation Edition

Senior Abby Draper: “Like a year or two ago, I was in a really bad state of depression, and I really needed something that would snap me out of it. I was trying with therapy and everything and I still struggled. But all it took was one line in a TV show to tell me that I was gonna be okay. It was a line that said ‘I’m here and I stay,’ which was said by Waverly Earp on a show called Wynonna Earp. I heard it and immediately I was like if that doesn't sum it up, what does? And it was a really important moment and I actually got to thank the actress who said that, and we became pals. That quote means a lot to me, and now I have a little sticker of it on the back of my car.”

  • Senior Anna Rettig: “I want to make a lot of money so I can do what I like to do. I kind of want to have a kayak in my backyard so I can kayak whenever I want. I want to move out of Indiana because it’s too cold here. I want to live in Florida but it's expensive to live there which is why I want to make a lot of money.”

  • Algebra I teacher Joseph Broman: “I would give advice to my college self if I could. I would say it's not about what college you go to, because to be honest everybody thinks that going to Harvard or MIT or Stanford for your undergrad will be amazing, but it doesn't really matter as much as where you go for your undergrad as much as how hard you work, and the degree you are getting and the field you’re going in to. I would encourage to do more internships, summer opportunities. It is so easy now to just spend your time playing video games over the summer, but I would have advised myself to get more involved in the career field I wanted to pursue.”

  • Senior Chae Haley: “I wish I got more involved in the clubs and activities here (at CHS). I was involved in UNICEF, Positive Impact, I have done all sorts of stuff but there are so many unique things that I did not go out of my comfort zone to try.”

  • Senior Breanna Hartung: "I regret not taking more leadership roles in the activities that I was involved with. I should have put myself out there more and really pushed myself outside of my boundaries but instead I let myself get lost in the crowd. I recently had a college interview and when he asked me what I did in high school leadership wise I had nothing to say and so I am disappointed in myself in that aspect but I still had a great experience here and enjoyed everything I was involved in.”
