The True Diary of Luke Skewis By; Luke Skewis Hi I’m Luke Skewis. I’m a 5’7, Sophomore at Negaunee High School. The stories you are about to read and very important lessons I learned from my friends, family, and coaches. I hope you enjoy The True Diary of Luke Skewis. 2nd Grade It was Super Bowl Sunday and I invited all of my friends over for a “Super Bowl Party.” It was the first one that I had as a kid.
I remember looking to the left and right of me everyone seemed to be enjoying the first day of school. Everyone including myself showing off our clean new outfits we had bought during back to school sales. Eagerly waiting for the bell to ring; I remember walking around trying to find something to do as I wait impatiently for school to start. Trying to find something I can go and chill I walk over to the school gym, taking a look around me I see our school colors, which are black and yellow. Almost forgot the name of my high school is Adrian Wilcox High, home of the thunder if I remember correctly or lightning one of the two but I digress.
Until the summer before his junior year he played against the number one high school player in the country. He was talking about Lenny Cooke, who had earned MVP the previous year at this Adidas ABCD camp. LeBron pretty much destroyed him and from that moment they knew he wasn’t going to go to college. Deciding to finish his education, James had a tremendous senior year on the court. He averaged 31.6 points per game, helping his team clinch their third state title.
Jackie started really excelling at sports in high school, where he lettered in football, basketball, track, and baseball. While playing sports at John Muir High School most of Jackie 's teammates were white, this helped inspire Jackie to pursue a career in professional sports, wanting to show the world African Americans could play sports too. Robinson also played tennis. In 1936 Jackie won the junior boys singles championship in the annual Pacific Coast Negro Tennis Tournament. After high school Jackie attended Pasadena Junior college, where he played basketball,
It happened on June 11, 2015. My lacrosse team won our regional quarter final game the previous day—I scored my personal best of five goals and was named Player of the Game. As a reward for the win, my coach gave us a three hour practice the next day that was strictly conditioning—leaving the seniors 30 minutes to go home, shower, change, and drive to our Senior Dinner at Bowdoin College. I raced home from practice, my sweat sticking to the car leather seats, music blasting, and the wind in my hair. I had the future on my mind: playoffs, graduation, summer, and college.
I surprised myself by getting to golf varsity as the fourth golfer out of six. I accomplished this by putting in many long hours to become the best golfer I could be. I even placed first out of all the other girls at a meet. I will never forget that magical moment. The sound of my teammates and coach cheering as they heard my name being called out.
Not this time. I walk through freely and head towards my first class. I enter and do something I have never done before. I said hello to my teacher. I was given a friendly-sounding reply that could be interpreted as a gesture of kindness or an inconspicuous threat.
Because of this hard work, I lettered varsity my freshman year at Crown Point, and I was placed on the varsity Munster volleyball team. I have been on the most successful club team around. We have gotten third place at our national tournament two years in a row, and also won our national tournament one year. People say “you do not know what you have had, until you have lost it.” The meaning of this quote has become appallingly clear, as it has become my reality. Up until now, I have always taken volleyball for granted.
This quote reflects one of the important ideas that I have learned in this class. In the past, I typically thought of happiness as only an emotion. I never thought of how essential happiness would be to live an excellent life, let alone my health. However, as I continued to attend this class, I realized how important happiness was. I am sure plenty of you all have felt this, having to wake up early in the morning to trek to school to at 7:00 AM for a seemingly useless class.
So I redirected my disappointment and decided to excel at summer school. I did my homework everyday, I payed attention, and I actually gained an understanding of the material I was learning. I went as far to ask my parents to give me a tutor to be certain I had no excuses. And now in my senior year in highschool my grade never dropped below a B. Refusal to fail is now in my
Girls third through sixth grade sign up every year to cheer for the four quarters of every football game, along with doing a routine to entertain fans at halftime. I began cheering for this program in the third grade. I remember the pride I felt while wearing my Cardinal uniform (that was five years old, smelled bad, and was three sizes too big for me.) Each year I worked hard to
I would first like to thank the selection committee of the Van Buren Athletics Booster Scholarship for considering my application for this prestigious award. I am very proud of my accomplishments throughout high school. I earned my first varsity letter as a freshman on the Girls Golf Team. Since then, I have earned three subsequent letters and various other accolades. I received NWOGGL Rookie of the Year, which was based on my individual scores and a vote from the coaches in the league.
As I end my sophomore year at Old Dominion University I think about all that I have accomplished in the past two years. I think about traveling to Peru and volunteering at an Hogar and Hospital as a Freshmen, Becoming Co-President of the Women’s ministry for ODU’s Catholic Campus Ministry, and to working hard and receiving good grades in all my classes. Not only do I think about all the work that I have done so far but I also think about my family and all the sacrifices they have made for me. I think about my parents waking up early every day to go to work just so we could have food on the table and a roof over our heads. I think about all they had to sacrifice when they fled from their country just so my siblings and I could grow up with more opportunities, and accomplish any goals we set ourselves without having to worry about whether or not tomorrow would come.

This picture shows a team of determination. This picture is the rivermont raiders All star team including Ethan McGill and a bunch of his friends.This picture tells a story that is story book quality and is the pride and soul of all the alumni of the raiders team. On the day of June twenty fifth of 2013, a little twelve year old all star team is on the field fighting for their right at the championship. This team was known to all as the Rivermont Raiders. Seven years this group of boys had played together and not once had they won the state championship, however this year this team had swore that it would be different.
