In highschool I was highly committed to a program called "Breakthrough" for my last three years in high school. Breakthrough helps first generation students go to college, starting to work with them in middle school. It's an amazing organization and helps the kids every step of the way, whether it be tutoring for a hard math exam in 8th grade or application help when applying to college in 12th grade. My role was to be a mentor leader during Saturday sessions. From 8am to 4pm, we would lead 12 - 15 students through activities to learn about college, or just work on important skills such as writing, reading and research.
His doubts of my seriousness student were palpable, and there due to my minimal oral participation in the class. Though I understood where he was coming from, I saw myself as more of a reticent but engaged student, completely capable of wrestling with a course like AP US. He agreed to let me take the entrance test after weeks of constant inquiry. After a month of waiting I received an email say that I had been accepted into the class. When I ecstatically approached him the next day and questioned him about the test, he said that I was ready for a class of a higher level and that mine was one of the best essays overall.
It was at this moment I knew that I had discovered something special, and it is called BBYO. BBYO is a teen-led Jewish organization that facilitates and allows future leaders to grow and develop.

Teens get elected to serve on boards, and every rule is set by a motion made in a business meeting BBYO runs based off of parliamentary procedure and the needs and wants of the people.

Class starts exactly at 8 and the second I got there I already recognized 2 of my buddies and 5 other McKinley students. Instantly I could tell this wasn't going to be that bad. I came to this class with a goal of getting an A and 3 days in, I finish quarter one of algebra and the teacher made me a math tutor along with some other kids. Math class was easy after words from then on. Once or twice a week during the summer I would go out, watch a movie or go eat with some friends and that was mainly my entire summer.
I was ecstatic, unable to process what had happened to me. The next few months were electric, I rushed to make every arrangement I would need to attend this school. It was the start of my metamorphosis into the unique person I would become. College was a breath of new life blown into my lungs, filling my body with the desire to shed who I was and become something representative of what I was taught.
First Day of School Sherwood Middle School’s first official school day started Wednesday, September ninth, at 8:00 a.m. Students had different emotions about school, some were nervous, excited, and/or sad that summer ended.

Our teacher told us the first day of school that we would get a new boy in our class and that his name was Billy.

Every single student said that they were, which is something that is amazing and rare. The teachers at Waldron encourage this positive learning environment that is so crucial to student
