‘She made me love history’

Editor’s Note: Cuero High School held their annual bell ceremony on Tuesday, May 17 at the high school girl’s gym. The top 10 students from the senior class and an 11th student were selected to present a bell to someone who has made a difference in their lives. Following is the speech mady by Jennifer Cornett.

My life has always been hectic. I’ve moved around a lot and that led to not having very many close friends. After my dad died, I didn’t think I’d ever like anything ever again. As a matter of a fact, after he died I had given up my plans to go to college. Someone changed my perspective on that when I transferred from Cuero Intermediate to Meyersville the summer before 5th grade. I would love to honor that person today the best that I can.

Davis thanks coach Warren

Editor’s Note: Cuero High School held their annual bell ceremony on Tuesday, May 17 at the high school girl’s gym. The top 10 students from the senior class and an 11th student were selected to present a bell to someone who has made a difference in their lives. Following is the speech made by Laura Davis.

This individual is one of the people in my life who I respect the most. I have gained more than just knowledge and a passion in a subject, but I have learned many life lessons that I might otherwise learned the hard way if at all. When I met this person in my sophomore year, I was terrified. I was only 14 years old and everybody I met was frightening. I remember walking in to their room and completely freezing up like a deer in headlights. I forgot what I was going to say.
