Behind the eyes of a dedicated band student, lays a fierce competitor from within. Eyes on the prize, that band student put in hours of constant rehearsing for one true goal…to excel in any opportunity given.

An extracurricular activity is usually seen as just to keep the student busy. There’s more to it than it may seem.

Kyle Goff INTRODUCTION As a personal trainer, when I speak with other people in my field we often discuss training programs and methods, exercises, and how to motivate people. However, the biggest and most shameful void in my profession is that of injury prevention. When I am personal training people in the weight room, I have one on one time with that person to show them proper form and technique. I give all new clients an orientation and make it a point to let them know when their form is incorrect no matter how experienced they are. However, as a group fitness instructor it is much harder to do this in a class setting.
The program gives you challenges and opportunities to become a better citizen. The instructors are not like teachers, they put in an effort for you to actually try and build up. You do leadership tasks; you help younger teens, participate in things that other teens don't get to participate in.

Wearing uniform teaches us responsibility; we have to make sure that our uniform is in order, and has everything on correctly.

We hoped that the more frequently we went and with the support and encouragement of our peers the better and stronger we would become. Our team hoped rock climbing would improve our overall physical fitness and ability to work as a team to achieve a goal that is beneficial for our future health.
I am involved in many activities in an out of school. I keep myself busy at school by participating in the H.O.P.E. Medical Academy, where They help me strive to my career and the future I dream to have, In Key Club, where I can give back to my community, I go to Teen Court, where I can restore peace and bring back justice to this world, and my favorite and I personally think is the most important, Marching band.

Strength is exemplified in three main ways: Brute strength, mental strength, and spiritual strength. Physical strength is easily seen every day. People are always trying to become stronger. There are so many gyms because people strive to become stronger. We are willing to take money and spend it on supplements and weights and gym memberships because staying strong is important enough to us that we spend money on that instead of other things.
This empowered me to serve my team mates and to inspire them to seek excellence in all their pursuits. I learnt through every session that though we gained dribbling and shooting skills, there was never a duplicate of the moves we were taught.

It was however unfortunate that upon our return from a basketball trip, we were involved in a fatal bus accident.
