You Don’t Know My Story- Junior Elias Myers

Quynh Trinh, Staff Reporter

“Behind every person lies a story”

Ritenour High School believes that for each person there is a story. That we don’t know what the other person is going through so we must not judge others. We are sharing stories of students and staff, not to be a voyeur into others pain, but to show that we all deserve some compassion.

“I am not as shy as before. I would like to thank my dad, my coaches, and my friends for that.

My dad pushed me to join sports, and not be one of those kids who are in school and do nothing. Back in middle school when I did not know what I wanted to do, my dad helped me. Now, I want to be an engineer.

Coach Rick Shelton walked up to me one day and asked me if I wanted to do track and pole vaulting. I did not know what pole vaulting was, but I decided to do it anyway. This was my first year and I went to sectionals.

My friends Kenneth Ellis, Brian Bobo, and Coby Nathaniel have been with me for so long. I would not have done track without Kenneth, and I would not be the person I am today without Brian and Coby.

For now, I am staying focused on track and I hope to go farther with all the opportunities I have.”
