Attending Pinson Valley High School was an amazing experience! Within my four years, this school has helped me evolved into the person I am today. As a freshman, I entered high school shy and timid. I would have the tendency to believe participating in extracurricular activities (except for sports) were lame, and were not the activities "everybody" was doing. By the start of my sophomore year, with the help of my teachers, administrators, and friends, I learned how to become a leader, and not to be what everyone was, but to be myself, and go the path that God purposefully placed me in. By the end of my senior year, I participated in my school's theater department, Dual-Enrollment Program, cheer team (as mascot), and SkillsUSA progam (as President from 10th grade - 12th grade) earning multiple awards and honors.

Attending Pinson Valley High School taught me to make the best out of situations. Comparing my previous school to Pinson made me realize that there has to be a change in Jefferson County School Systems. There are the basic ----- at Pinson Valley such as: primary sports, Honor Societies and certain clubs that are common( chess, key club, math club, etc...) but it lacks motivation in some areas as well as freedom for students to go beyond what they have imagined. Although, Pinson Valley cannot do much about the lack of funds it has, the things I would like to see change in is the persistence teachers should have, the power students should have to use their imagination to go beyond ordinary school rules and more opportunities for the community to come together.
Through my years at the high school, I’ve seen so many people become great leaders and most importantly a diverse group! Everyday I️ experience teachers who help you become a better student and always give you opportunities to be better!
