I love the community in McKinney! I especially love the love and support my school shows to the community and the members of our school. This past summer a friend of mine, Aaron Hill, passed and the community came together to support him and his family by raising money for his funeral, friends, and family. Everything about McKinney is great!

When I attended there was a clear divide between student and faculty. More often faculty would cater to students who came from families with an abundant access of resources which is something I would like to see changed. Furthermore, during the time I attended there were multiple instances of students' mental health which were not addressed in a way beneficial to students except for when those problems made the news such as with the death of student Raymond Howell. I think people should be able to look back on those memories with fondness, however too many previous students have the mentality that the time should be forgotten about.
The Mckinney School district has encouraged growth and personal development as a student in and out of the classroom. I have had very positive teachers and mentors throughout my 11 years as a student in the district. I have learned to read and initiated a coat drive for the needy in my early years at my Mckinney elementary school. I have experienced many setbacks as an athlete that my coaches have helped me overcome- including a broken back. Also, my teachers have provided opportunities for me to be involved with community projects specific to my field of study by allowing me to participate in the building/ design of a prosthetic arm with a local engineering business. As you can see, I have been blessed with a variety of inspiring teachers, coaches, and mentors that have enabled me to grow not just as a student but as a citizen of the community as well.
