Bibb County has exceptional values and pursues to push their students in the direction of success! I have been involved in Bibb County schools since kindergarten and I have absolutely loved the atmosphere. While I have had a wonderful experience as a Howard Student, I will say that as a senior I have. not felt well prepared for college. I wish we had more opportunities for seniors to go through the application process, along with FASFA and so much more. I know with such large numbers this can be difficult, but it is much needed to have successful students. Being a senior is quite challenging at times and having that experience would lighten the load. My counselor has done a wonderful job giving us the time of day and even setting up meetings with colleges that we are interested in. I am very grateful for all the opportunity Bibb County has allowed me to have throughout the years and I think because of this place, I am a much better leader and individual.

As a current senior, I’ve officially completed all levels of Bibb county education. I’ve enjoyed high school the same as I’ve enjoyed middle and elementary. The faulty and staff at my school were very friendly and encouraging. I’ve attended Vineville Academy, Miller Middle School, and Central High School. I actually looked forward to coming to school and on my worst days there were classes that got me through it. There were always numerous amounts of clubs to participate in as well as sports and fine arts. The faculty always encouraged after school involvement. I participated in IB, varsity basketball, cross county, beta club, orchestra, and FBLA. My senior year, some friends and I even started a green team to help clean up the cafeteria after lunch. I would change the food, however, as many kids would eat snacks all day because of the limited menu items and they were repetitive daily. This contributed to more rats in the school and a more difficult job for the custodians.
I attend Central High School and being a Central Charger, to me, means taking pride in your school. It means engaging in different actions to encourage bonds between myself and my fellow peers and classmates. I’ve been here 4 years and there is literally no other school I would rather be attending, because of the love and unity this school offers. The 3 R’s of CHS are Ready, Responsible, and Respect and I apple these 3 words to my life every day. First it’s important to be ready for anything. It’s important that I take responsibility in nearly everything that I do. I’m responsible for taking in as much knowledge as I can to be prepared for college and also life beyond college. Now out of all 3 of these words, the most important one is respect. Respect goes a long way. It ranges from respecting people, environments, objects, and most importantly, yourself. I’ve always took in the knowledge of respecting myself.
