The fact that I’m a senior hasn’t hit me yet. Yes, the workload has hit me. The enormous pile of physics homework has too, but it’s crazy to think that at this time next year I’ll be out of Liberty. This is terrifying for me. I’m a very detail-oriented person. If you take ...

Sophomore Kennedy Naseem “I enrolled in competitive theatre because I did it 8th grade thinking it would be the perfect opportunity. I hadn’t met [Turpin] before but when I stepped into the class, everyone was laughing and having fun with him. He cares more than other teachers. He’s impa...
