Countdown to Graduation: Memories and Gratitude

Collinsville High School is a place I will forever cherish and look back at because of all the memories I made here. I have made lifelong friendships as well. My most memorable memory would have to be going to Lake Winnie during 4th through 6th grade. I worked hard all-year to make sure I was able to make the cut at the end of the year for the trip. The night before, my younger self was not able to fall asleep because of the excitement. I remember riding the O-Zone with Belinda and thinking it was the scariest ride ever. We even prayed on the way up.
I would also like to thank all my teachers throughout the school years. Without the help of all them I would not be where I am at today. Special thanks to Ms. Marroquin for being there when I needed her the most.
