After high school I plan to attend Texas A&M University, College Station where I’ll attend the Mays Business School as a marketing major. My best memory during high school was performing in the district musical my senior year, as we were one of the only schools to put one on during COVID. What I am going to miss most is my friends and the extracurriculars I participated in.

 

My advice to the underclassmen is to never wish time away, because at some point you’ll be wishing for it back.

I’m planning on attending Texas State in San Marcos, I think my best memory was the art studio my junior year I had three art periods and this was pre pandemic so it was insane; made some of my best work and I was able to bounce off of Mrs. Valdez and Mrs. Ardner back and forth it was a creative chamber, if it wasn’t that then it was the week before the pandemic hit, that was a certain level of innocence To look back on. I honestly won’t miss much, but I will miss the art studio and my art teachers the most, along with a lot of other cool teachers around the halls; and I miss all the seniors I never got to see graduate when I was a junior.

 

This advice goes to everyone really; be yourself; beeeeee y-o-u-r-s-e-l-f, if you are comfortable in your own skin than you are unstoppable.

I plan on working getting money before I ship off to boot camp and spend time with my significant others. Best memory was watching our varsity basketball team secure a wild win(fun, loud crazy game).

 

My advice for anyone going through high school is to keep your standards high at all times and don’t slack off because it will come back and bite you in the back at the end. Work hard in order to be successful in any aspect because at the end of the day, you want to be able to walk the stage!

After High school I plan to study at UTSA with a good friend of mine named Sarai Perez later to be joined by Aryana Sorrel. I plan to travel, explore what the world has to offer with God by my side I can do anything! My best memory of High School would be hanging out with my friends meeting up planning to have fun and cherishing the good things that life has to offer. I’m going to miss my Favorite person in the whole school and Art world Mrs. Ardner. She pushes me to do better, sticks up for every one of her students and wants everyone to succeed in Life.

 

My advice goes to anyone that cares to listen, stop the hate, stop the bullying, stop the careless decisions, even though it doesn’t affect you it effects the people around you. As the song titled “Kill them with Kindness”- by Selena Gomez goes.

I’m going to UT Austin to study computer science and hopefully study abroad during my sophomore year  My best memory in high school was probably when Crick took a picture in front of East during the battle of the boot last year . I’m going to miss the familiarity of this place. I already know pretty much all of the little loopholes and tricks so I’ll have to relearn those when I go to Austin.

 

My tip to underclassmen is to take Dual Credit courses because they’re often easier than AP and they prepare you for school after high school. Also, take CBEs. They allow you to skip classes so you can graduate early or take classes you’re interested in but couldn’t fit in your schedule.

I want join the EMT program at VC after high school.

Best memory in high school would have to be when i painted all my friends nails sophomore year in the library.

I'm going to miss being in color guard and always being busy with them, ill miss theater for sure as well.

Some advice I'll give is to make as many memories as possible, join a sport or activity you like, take time to improve yourself. I've made lots of mistakes in school but life goes on and enjoy it while you can.

 After high school I am going to Texas A&M Corpus Christi to go into the medical field, I want to work in a children’s hospital to make the kids who are there feel better because I know it can be tough and scary for them. Just so they know someone is on there side. My best memory would probably be going to the games to support my friends and eat the nachos. I think I would miss doing shows for theatre and being around all of the friends I made, especially the one who I have done theatre with since middle school, and I’ll also miss Mrs. Montgomery because she has been my theatre teacher since 6th grade and she never gave up on me.


Some advice i would give is to always believe in yourself because no one else will. to upcoming seniors I would say to not put to much stress on yourself because it’s going to overwhelm you, to have fun, and to do whatever makes you happy after high school, whether it be college or working at a retail store.

I am going to A&M and my major will be environmental studies. my best high school memories were overnight swim meets my freshman and sophomore years. I'll miss the friends I made here

 

I would advise the future freshman to look into really taking advantage of the dual credit program, because I did and i'm graduating with almost 2 years of college done, which is way more than I could have accomplished with AP classes. I would also advise them to focus more time on what will make them truly happy rather than wasting their time on trying to perfect what they might think makes them look "cool".

 I plan to attend University of North Florida in the fall to study finance and also swim on the UNF swim team. My best memory during high school was when I made state last year as a junior and having all my friends and family there congratulating and celebrating with me. I’m going to miss my family a lot and also some of the friends I have made here.

 

I would give my advice to the freshman and say that when people tell you that the four years of high school fly by. They truly mean it. So I would say make the most of your four years. Stay true to yourself. Never lose sight of what truly matters. And don’t let anyone tear you down or change you. Also would highly recommend taking dual credit over AP classes. Most importantly, work hard because it pays off.

i plan on attending Wentworth institute of technology in Boston to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering and i will double minor in aerospace and physics. I plan on also joining a dance studio nearby. I can’t narrow it down to just one memory but the east v. west football game was lots of fun this year. the “overall girls” and I did the best we could to make it as fun as it could be under our current circumstances. I’m definitely going to miss the experience of going to games and supporting my friends and getting to see my favorite teachers everyday.

 

some advice I would give would be to always try your hardest and take every single opportunity that is offered. always be yourself and don’t confine yourself to a box or change yourself to fit the standards of others.

 I plan on attending utsa and majoring in business management to become and entrepreneur like my dad. My best memory during high school would have to be playing basketball and and making some of the greatest bonds with my teammates. I’m going to miss having friends in my classes, creating bonds that I hope to never lose, and learning the lessons that shaped me into who I am with some of the greatest people

 

 To my new seniors don’t take any time for granted, get involved while you can, smile at people who look like they’re having a bad day, make new friends, share memories, and laugh as much as you can now before everything gets too serious! And try not to stress too much this year can be tough


And to all of my underclassmen pay attention in class because you don’t want to retake anything your senior year just get things done when you can and have the best years you can!

After graduation I will be attending UMHB to major in Criminal Justice. Some of the best memories, in my opinion where always the battle of the boot football games. After I leave, I'm going to miss seeing all the amazing people I grew up with and the organizations I was apart off (band and baseball). 

To all the upcoming freshman class, enjoy these next 4 years. You don’t get these moments back. Cherish everything, graduation comes quicker than you expect.

Some of my best memories would, of course, has to be football playoffs my junior and senior year. It was great to build such an amazing bond with all the boys on the team.  

 

Some advice I have is to leave no regrets behind and never be afraid to do things outside of your comfort zone.

Dear Underclass, 

Always remember that certain people will only be in your life a short time, so you should spend high school focusing on yourself and developing new and real relationships.

After high school I plan on going to the university of Colorado, to study psychology and American sign language. My favorite memory during high school was not only being able to make history (with band) but being able to watch my friends do what they love to do. 

I'm going to miss hearing the under classmen saying, “I don’t want to go to school,” but always ended up going all week. I will also miss listening to my teachers' irrelevant stories in the middle of class. 

Some advice? Freshman, yes, it's okay to have fun but DO NOT slack your first year. Sophomores and juniors, make it last while you can. Try to get involved in any way you can, it will make your time here worth it. To the seniors! It goes by so fast! Enjoy it, go to all the games, dances, extra stuff, go to parties, be loud, hang out with friends, laugh, and just simply make it the time of your life. 

It's been real! Peace out!

After high school I plan on attending Victoria College my first two years then transferring to Texas State University. Where I plan to major in Education. 
 
My best memory of high school is my first varsity football game my freshman year. I was one of the two freshman that made varsity and was able to be announced and tumble out.  
 
One thing I will miss about high school is cheering at Friday Night Lights but most of all I will miss being able to see my best friends every day. 
 
Dear Juniors,  
My advice to you is to enjoy every moment. Senior year is going to go by faster than you can imagine. Make your last homecoming and prom as memorable as possible. Try new things and be adventurous your last year. Remember to be kind to everyone even your teachers, and finally good luck on your last year!

Hey guys!

 

I'm Avery Taylor. I plan on going to college at Victoria College and majoring in history and secondary education. One of my favorite memories is being able to perform with the dance team. Whether it was at pep rallies or football games, it was always something I looked forward too. I’m going to miss my friends who aren’t seniors. Being on legacy has allowed me to be friends with every grade so I will definitely miss seeing them every day.   

If I had advice for freshmen, it would be to get involved with whatever you can. The school paper and yearbook helped me break out of my box and I couldn’t be more grateful for it. The sports on campus have open tryouts so just do whatever you can.

My plan after high school is to peruse the study of insects and become a world-famous entomologist and own my own stag beetle.

My best memory of high school was advisory period of my sophomore journalism class.

After I leave, I'm going to miss having so much free time.  

Some advice I would give to incoming freshmen would be for them to get into a habit of doing all the work they get as soon as they get it, also, study in classes you don’t have over a 95 in.

I plan on going to Victoria Community College for my basics and hopefully transfer to Sam Houston State University. I hope to major in psychology and earn a minor in English.

 

My best memory of high school would be the time or varsity cheer team travels to Dallas for NCA nationals, even though my sophomore year we kept on getting lost because google maps decided to not work that day. 

What I'm going to miss abut high school is going to see my best friends every day and participating in pep rallies. 

Dear Freshman, 

Here’s my advice to you. Your time in high school is going to fly by. I know everyone is going to tell you that and you're probably going to say “whatever” because that’s what I said. Experience everything, participate in everything, go to homecoming and football games. Be nice to your teachers because they are trying their best. Also don’t forget to have fun!

After high school I plan on playing football at Texas Lutheran University while trying to get a Vet Degree. One of my favorite memories would have to be all of the baseball tournaments and staying at different hotels with the whole team. When I graduate, I'm going to miss hanging out with my friends every day.  

Some advice I would have for underclassmen would be to have fun and enjoy every day of high school while it's here. Also, don’t get behind on your work because it’s a pain to try to catch up.

Angel Hammon

Hi, I'm Angel Hamman! After high school I plan on going to college at VC to become a vet technician. Some of my best memories in high school were when I would basically pass out from screaming the VICTORY chant at pep rallies. It was so much fun to see everyone participate and to see how much school spirit West high school actually had.

  

I'm going to miss meeting new people every day. After graduation you start to realize that a lot of people are temporary, but the memories will last forever.  

Some advice I would give to underclassmen would be to enjoy every day, because they fly by! Also try not to fall far behind because when you hit senior year you have to do nothing but try your best and get all A’s to try to catch up, while if you stay on top of your work, you can just chill out your senior year. Don’t be hard on your teachers because they are not the reason you are forced to go to school, they are just trying their best to help you to become a successful human being. 

Allison Dentler

Hi I'm Allison Dentler! I'll be attending Texas State University in the fall of 2021, to study fine arts. One of my favorite memories from high school would have to be sneaking into the senior section, with all my friends, when we were sophomores at the pep rallies. I think the thing I will miss the most when I leave is all the support and love this school has given me. 

Some advice I have for oncoming freshmen would be to enjoy high school, these four years of your life will fly by. Get involved in extracurricular activities, it makes school a little less painful. Last but not least enjoy the ride, there are some of the best years of your life!
