Some posts I site for y'all some posts I write for myself. This post is one I am writing more for myself and my memory than for anything else. The curtain has closed on senior year and there are some events that I want accounted for. In the future, I will have some posts filled with pictures from the end of my senior year and I will also have a graduation post but that will come later.
Last week, I had two different awards banquets to attend and was pleasantly surprised to be honored at both events!
I have loved soccer and have played since I could walk so it is absolutely crazy to think that my soccer playing time is over. I have been blessed to be a part of the varsity team at my school since 7th grade! It was a HUGE time commitment but it was worth it!
This year we split our team up into 4 families of 8 girls which made the team a lot more personal!
My family at banquet gave me the cutest burlap basket filled with monogrammed towels, a giant waterproof cosmetic bag and a book of pictures of me playing soccer this past year! Quite honestly, I didn't cry until I looked through the book!
I was also given two awards this year!
The first award I received was the Offensive Player of the Year award. I kind of saw this one coming since I received it last year and had far more goals than anyone else on the team (15)! Regardless, I was honored to receive it and was humbled by the kind words my coach said about me when receiving the award.
The second award is one I had forgotten that existed. This is one that I will treasure beyond any other award I receive because of what it represents. The award was named after a coach after my school and it is given to the senior boy and senior girl who portrays enthusiasm, dedication, and commitment as well as leadership and soccer skill. I was so surprised and honored to be the recipient of that award!
Academic Awards Day:
This year at awards day I received quite a few honors.
At my school we receive silver plates for more academic based awards that are more individualized and plaques for more service based awards.
This year I was honored for the scholarships I received as well as:
The Socratic Award
The Departmental Award for AP French
The JeAnne Yancy Service Award
The Headmaster's Behind the Scene Award
and The Senior Leadership Award.
All of my handwork and effort from my years at my school was recognized and it was a great end to a fantastic school year!
