I am a senior here at Fairfield Local High School. Fairfield has blessed me with so many opportunities academically. Growing up I was always a shy, out cast who never enjoyed public speaking. However, six of my classmates and I were chosen by the staff here at Fairfield for an opportunity our sophomore year to attend a summer camp with the iBELIEVE Foundation, a foundation that allows opportunities to Appalachian youth to access skills in leadership, communication, and problem solving. With this foundation I was able to speak on stage at the 2019 Gala for the founders of iBELIEVE, and ultimately overcome my fear of public speaking, meet incredible people and acquire a love for leading. Without the help from my principal and teachers here as Fairfield Local High School none of this would have been possible. They saw something in me that I had not yet seen in myself and I will always be so thankful for these years I have spent as a student at Fairfield.

I had to rely on the internet for information because the textbooks were outdated. Since few teachers cared, the majority of the time I taught myself. There were very little clubs/activities that the school offered because all that they ever cared about was sports (boys' basketball in specifics). Also, none of the food ever looked fresh. It was all very bland tasting and had a tint of gray to everything (even vegetables lacked bright coloring). I learned to pack a lunch. There were very few buses, meaning that students were occasionally crammed three-to-a-seat. As for restrooms, girls were scolded and banned a couple years ago from doing makeup/hair because it was "a place to do your business" and nothing else. More recently, there was one week where the restrooms remained locked at lunch to prevent students from "hanging out". Of course, my favorite was when the soap dispensers were absent from the girls' bathroom for a week or two, leaving no soap (or hand sanitizer) to wash hands.
Fairfield has been a good experience for me. I have enjoyed my time there and excelled at many things. I do wish there were more opportunities for band and art. The lack of a football team greatly affects the amount of activities the band participates in.
