I went to Auburn High School from 2009 to 2013. I spent all four years of high school at Auburn for one reason only and that reason is because of all the diversity it encompassed. I spent my first year at the freshman campus somewhat isolated from the main campus until my sophomore year. From the Gifted Academy to the Creative and Performing Arts Academy, there was always a perfect niche for individual students. I was part of many programs at Auburn that helped shape me into the man I am today.
It was a privilege to go to a school as great as Auburn. The halls were filled with so much school spirit and love that after graduation, I kept going back because I missed the type of atmosphere Auburn had manifested. The teachers and staff there felt more like family than employees, and every time I visit, it feels like I never left. I am beyond grateful to have attended a high school with as much pride as Auburn.
Auburn taught me some lessons that sitting in a classroom never could. The most important lesson: being able to foster many beautiful relationships with students and staff from all different backgrounds and walks of life. Being able to communicate effectively without bias backed by a school full of champions was an awesome place to be.
