"I have been a student at Richmond Senior High for the past two years and I am about to finish my last year. This school has helped me, but most of all the wonderful staff have been the highlight of my past years at Richmond. I am a Junior ROTC cadet, I am on the Rifle team as well as the S-1 for my senior year. The great teachers and advisors in Richmond have helped mold me into becoming a better leader and to prepare me for my future. I believe that all thing are possible and I owe that to the educators at richmond Senior High School. I had a chance and I was not put in the shadows I was helped and given a responsiblity that made me feel important and thats what every student in America wants. So thank you for allowing me to have the oppertunity of a liftime in being a Richmond Raider!"
