Senior Feature: Liberty Graves

By: Ryan Glatzel/Junior Writer

“Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.” -Harvey Mackay

Liberty Graves has made a lasting impact on the Blue Ridge High School by being involved in Envirothon, FBLA, and National Honor Society. She’s also let her inner athlete shine through by participating in Track and Field, and Varsity Basketball Cheer. Graves has also been part of the high school concert band for all 4 years of her high school career.

After high school, Graves plans to attend an undecided 4 year college majoring in biology. She hopes to make it into a Vet School in order to help her pursue her dream job as a Veterinarian.

When asked if she will participate in sports or clubs during college, Graves says, “I’ve been thinking about throwing on a college’s track & field team.” She may also try to be involved in clubs, but unknown of which ones.

When asked how she anticipates the next few years, she says, “I definitely think the next few years will be so much more challenging, since I’ll have to keep my grades up in college to ensure I make it into vet school. The environment in college will be much more different compared to high school too, so that would be something I’ll have to adjust to.”

She leaves the underclassman with the advice to always work hard, don’t get caught up in drama, be yourself, be kind to others, and take in every moment possible. High school can be a lot of fun and it flies by fast. Don’t take those four years for granted!
