Question: What was the most challenging thing of your high school career?

Discussion: Many students agreed that finding time to fit in school, homework, employment, social activities – and maybe a few hours of sleep – can be daunting.

Quotable: "It’s about balancing school, family and everything else you’re participating in. At some point, there’s a point where you say, ‘Well, I am doing all this work because I feel like I’m achieving this purpose – like college – but I still need to live, I still need to enjoy life.’ It’s about finding that precious balance about figuring out what I need to do for myself." – Sam Lynch, Rogers High School
