Character defined

I?ve been a student of Fresno Christian Schools ever since the notorious glory days of Kindergarten. It was there that I first met James Brown, the curly haired, albino skinned, jittery little boy that would be my best friend for 13 long years. After teaming up with the class bully, Spenser Koleen, and popular kid, Mikey Wills, my course was set in stone.

Our destinies would interweave for years to come, shaping the network of experiences that have made up my life, producing both my fondest and most lamentable memories. Today we are young men, weathered by our coming of age but refined by our lasting friendships with one another.

All the wisdom and knowledge I now posses are products of the life that this campus has provided me. We are often told that there are important life lessons to be learned while we are in school. Though the popular response is to shrug your shoulders and smirk as the exceeding knowledge you posses, it might be wise to take a closer look.

School isn?t just this terrible thing that is happening to you; it is a major part of your life. So in effect, who you are in school is who you are in life, however hard we try to separate the two.

If you can just learn how to apply yourself, not only when you want to but also in every aspect of your life, you will find that the rewards you receive are far better than any you were seeking on your own.

I an exceedingly thankful for the many teachers I?ve had that cared enough about me to see past my unrelenting ignorance. They prepared me for the person I was going to be without getting overly frustrated with the person I was.

My deepest gratitude I extend to you all.
