Last Bullhorn comes too soon

By Hannah Lunsford
Star of Hannah’s Corner

Words cannot describe the feelings that consume me as I write my last Bullhorn. For three years, I’ve been submersed in the journalistic world of reporting, writing, communicating, and broadcasting. I’ve created lasting friendships that I will treasure for years to come, and I have gained a second mother as well — Mrs. Boatwright.

In the fall, I will attend North Carolina State University (NCSU), where I will major in poultry science and possibly double-major in broadcasting and media.

Because I have been given the opportunity to be a part of Roxboro Community School’s (RCS) morning announcements, as well as have my own show, Hannah’s Corner, I have discovered a true passion of mine – broadcasting.

Thanks to journalism, I have met so many new people, in and out of the community. I have gained the confidence to speak to large crowds, strangers, and elected officials. I have been given so many opportunities and have formed so many relationships, which I will always be so thankful for.

It’s strange to think that I’m finally graduating. All of my hard work, the late-night study sessions, and the countless hours of homework have finally paid off.

There is no doubt in my mind that I will miss RCS and the students and faculty. Having been at RCS since the sixth-grade, a majority of my fondest memories have been made in those brick walls. While I am excited to begin a new chapter, a part of me will always belong to the old, creaky, wooden floors, the skylights which fill the atrium, and each classroom where I formed memories with some of my best friends.

Goodbyes are always hard, but this will definitely be one of the hardest. God has truly blessed me by placing me at RCS.
