During my time at Beaverton, I can recall countless memories that have made my high school experience unforgettable. From watching the amazing student section at football games to enjoying the well-thought variety of assemblies our school offers, I will certainly never forget Beaverton High School. The one suggestion I have to incoming freshman is to be involved in the school. I was lucky enough to be a 3-year varsity soccer player and that is something that I’ll never forget. I met the majority of my friends through soccer at Beaverton and made bonds that will last a lifetime. Soccer not only made me a better player, but it made me a better person as well. It taught me how to overcome adversity and importantly how to be a good loser.
My favorite memory at Beaverton was in the 2015 OSAA state playoffs. We had just won a play-in game and found ourselves barely making the playoffs. We were matched up against David Douglas, who was ranked #8 while we were ranked the lowest possible at #25. We knew it would be a tough game but we also knew we had the passion and desire to pull off an upset. We battled for the whole 90 minutes and eventually pulled off the upset. It was an amazing feeling because we came together as a team and showed that rankings mean nothing. This was a memory that I’ll never forget.
Beaverton High School has taught me so much. I can’t even begin to think about who I’d be if it weren’t for the staff and students here. They do so much for not only me but for the entirety of the school in making sure students are prepared for whatever path they decide to take on. My favorite part of BHS is the tradition it holds. The tradition is trickled in through almost every aspect of the school and attending a high school like this one has made me so grateful as I step into a new chapter of my life.
