Individual Senior Shoutouts

The HiLife Staff would like to give special shoutouts to our senior staff members, Rafe Garrett and Kourtney Masterson.

Rafe- We will miss your daily MadLibs, your antics with Jhett, and all of your big ideas that never got to come to life in high school because this school year was cut short. Keep dreaming and bring those goals to life in college or after!

Kourtney – You always go above and beyond in whatever you do. That is such a great quality to have! We will miss you keeping the class on track, and helping all of our staff members with anything that they need.

We hope that you both keep writing, because you both are so talented! You are both natural leaders, and we will truly miss that. You both left some huge shoes to fill! Thank you for everything that you contributed to the HiLife. Use your talents and your voice to change the world for the better. Come back to visit us often!
