"Mark Perez inspired us all to go on to do bigger and better things. At our banquet, he quotes; "it's been one heck of a run, but like all runs, it comes to an end." I haven't graduated yet but I will always remember this especially when I am a senior because, high school is just one little part of our lives, we have so much more to fulfill and experience. He taught me that high school doesn't determine who we are, we determine who we are by our life choices."
