Cara Folsom said her fondest memory in high school would be the connections she made with her teachers: one in particular.
“I was in their special education department. I instantly connected with Mrs. [Sarah] Johnson, who was the head of the department. Both of us had the same personality and bounce ideas off each other. Mrs. Johnson is assigned to deal mainly with the freshman, but she always helped anyone in the department,” Folsom said, “ Whether that be educationally or just to be a friend. The memories we share will always stay with me forever.”
Folsom said her class will be known for its determination to get a diploma in the time of a pandemic.
“I believe the hard work we put with our grades at the beginning of the second semester strived us to keep moving forward. I also think most of us are really done with high school and are ready to get out into the world,” she said.
Folsom felt heartbroken to not set foot into the high school as a student again after spring break.
“Everyone was so excited for spring break that we overlooked all the goodbyes from our teachers,” she said.
Folsom plans to attend Fort Scott Community College in the fall to get her associates degree and then she will transfer to Kansas State University where she plans to major in psychology.
