I enjoyed my time at Colquitt County High School. The teachers their care about their students and about their subjects. I like mostly the passion that, while some did not, many of my teachers shared. The greatest example being my High School Choir Director, who pushed us to be the best (literally), not because winning is everything, but you give your utmost energy to that which you value. His saying was Carpe Diem (Seize the Day). Because of his leadership, their was a pride and camaraderie experienced throughout A Capella and Serenaders' (the two top performing groups). This passion was experienced, however, in many classrooms, from Chemistry, Physics, and Anatomy, to Spanish and Fine Arts. Also, was the camaraderie and pride that came from being a PACKER! (Football is a big deal!) The only thing that can be done much better is preparation for college. The no-fail policy with no consequence prepares no one for college, careers, or society.

Being a part of this school is a great experience if you join a club or an organization and actually become involved (the more involved the better, but only sign up for what you can handle). One thing i will always remember from this school is my band family and the unforgettable memories created during our "Friday night lights" shared with our supportive community (which not every school is fortunate enough to have). I would choose this school all over again because of the unity its community has and the support it gives school sports/organizations (especially football).

There are many clubs and organizations at CCHS to chose from. Theres a club for anyone from math club to a riffle team to religious(FCA) to business (FBLA) and the list goes on and on. They are set at a reasonable price so you can be involved in several clubs. As an officer of Family and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) for two years I can say that being a part of a club helps build great leadership, social and public speaking skills. Most clubs at our school get involved in the community through fun projects.
