Despite some negative publicity last week, members of the student body weren’t going to let our school be defined by the choices of certain individuals. There are so many great things going on every day at BHS that go unnoticed. Principal Kris Byam gave a speech during Homecoming week, and in that speech he highlighted some of these things. We, as students, can either sit back and feel sorry for ourselves, or go out and do something about it. This is so much more than a few pieces of paper on lockers. This is a testament to how unified Boone High is and it shows that everyone has each other’s backs, even in flawed times.
“I was having a pretty rough day this morning. I went to open my locker and saw a note on the front. That note said ‘You’re awesome’ and my day quickly turned around. I realized that there are people out there that really do care about me.” said Sophomore Caden Burkamper.
This phenomenon is just beginning and you can expect it to grow as the year goes on. Get out there and create some notes of your own! In the words of Principal Byam, this truly is the Toreador Way.
