Words of Wisdom



Words of wisdom from recent high school graduates:

"A psychology teacher taught me always to do what I love, even if it doesn't pay well. A gymnastics coach taught me that who I am as a person is far more important than who I am as an athlete. A Spanish teacher taught me never to judge anyone by what they seem because we never truly know what anyone goes through." -- Elana C., La Costa Canyon High School.

"Persistence is more important than talent, and will earn the respect of others." -- Thomas S., Mission Bay High School.

"The successful person makes a habit of doing what the failing person doesn't like to do." Christian K., El Camino High School.
