My four years at Richwood High School have been a blessing. Our school got destroyed in a flood back in 2016 so i started my freshman year out by going in pods. (which is basically just a mini trailer park) They promised we would be out of the pods by the time we graduated. Well it’s my senior year and we’re still going to school in pods.

Even though these past four years of High School has throwing us many curve balls, we’ve still made the best out of it. The staff at Richwood High School are amazing. The students well I guess they’re some what okay too! Who am i kidding? I love most of my fellow classmates. We’ve made the most of our four years. And even though not having a normal High School got rough at times we still made the most out of it!

Richwood High school has had a difficult run. In 2016 the town of Richwood was flooded. When the flood hit, it ruined many business and building through out the town. One of these buildings was our high school. We were then put into pods and I have attended my entire high school years in these small building. Through out my four years of high school I have learned many things. One of these things is to try your hardest and never give up. Richwood has taught me that no matter the circumstances, you always push through and be the best you can be.
Attending Richwood High School for four years has been a wonderful experience. I have made some of the best friends, who I hope to have in my life forever. I have played many sports such as volleyball, cheerleading, and track. Richwood is small and everyone knows everyone, that's what I like about it most. If I'm in trouble, someone has my back, no matter what. Richwood is kind of like home in a sense. My teachers are like my parents, and my classmates are like my brothers and sisters. I have enjoyed my time at Richwood High School over the years and I'm very sad to see it come to an end in a few short months!
