Being a senior at American Fork High School makes you feel empowered. I have been influence by the staff at my high school immensely because of many reasons. Mrs. Shelley, my councilor and friend at AFHS is one of these people that influenced me. I was involved in Hope Squad with Mrs. Shelley along with a friendship, we could talk about college, worries and everything in-between. She kept up with the high school drama so that I had someone to lean on when times at home were busy and stressful. I learned from Mrs. Shelley how to be kind to everyone and how to look at people in a different perspective.
I applaud American Fork High School for hiring people like Mrs. Shelley, to help students of all shapes and sizes to feel empowered to keep going and to be kind. I know there are many more staff at American Fork that have made an impact on other students such as myself.
