Plainfield South was the typical high school you see in the movies. I had an absolutely outstanding experience. As a senior, I was encouraged to run for president and now I will always have the legacy of the president of the Class of 2017. I will forever cherish the time I spent in the cinderblock walls and the memories I created with the people who mean the most to me. Plainfield South is a family like no other.

Parents are always involved in athletic events but I hardly saw them around other than that.
