High school comes to a close

May 16, 2003

Albany- Westover High School students practiced for two hours Friday to prepare for their big day.

Joshua Hand says, "I'm just glad to get out of here. It's been a good four years, but I'm ready to get out of here." Others say after four years of hard work, they are proud of what they've accomplished and who they have become.

Tiffany Mallard says, "I've matured a lot because ROTC helped me out a lot. It gave me a lot of discipline and self character." Latoya Davis says, " I'm happy just making my mom happy, just achieving something I've wanted since I was little. "

Many students says this practice makes them realize how hard it will be to say goodbye to their teachers, who have also become their friends. Tiffany Mallard says,"The teachers  gave us so much support. They're just very supportive at Westover."

So as chapter one ends for these students, some told us what chapter two will bring. Joshua Hand says, "I'm going to Georgia Tech." Hope Pruitt says, "My plans are to go to the Navy, and then, I will leave for basic training next month in Chicago."

With eyes of hope and heads filled with dreams, these seniors are ready for whatever comes their way.

All Dougherty County High School graduations will be at the Civic Center Saturday. Westover High Graduation is at ten. Monroe High's graduation is at 12:30. Graduation for Dougherty High is at 3:00, and Albany High graduates at 5:30.
