I loved my Medical Assistant program. Also I loved most of my teachers.As for our diversity it is extremely imitated. I am from and extremely rural community that has more cows than people. Trust me sometimes thats a good thing, but when it comes to education and tolerance of other many people around me are lacking. If I could pick one thing to change at Preston County School it would be teacher salary and parent involvement. Teachers I believe have one of the most important jobs in the world. They have the world future in their hands, and that deserves more than a mediocre salary. Parent involvement is a huge problem the kids who's parents need to be involved seem to be the ones who don't care with is tragic.

My four years at Preston High have helped me build the foundation for my future. I've had some really good teachers who have helped me with my future goals. I took advantage of everything I could learn from them. Mostly, I would like to thank Ms. Metheny, Mr. John, Mr. Tasker, and Mrs. Sparks. They have been true inspirations to me my senior year and have been key in guiding me for my college plans and future career goals. I am very grateful to them for their guidance. Any student who has them in class should take advantage of absorbing the knowledge these teachers can provide and be thankful just like I am.
I attended Preston County Schools from 1st through 12th grade. I had many teachers that were caring and more than a teacher. Most of the administration cared and solved the issues as they came along. I am a proud graduate of Preston High School!
