From the Pres… FILLING A VOID
At the last minute, our government averted falling off the fiscal cliff. Now we face sequestration, which may cut many programs at all levels. Crowds of people are missing at sporting events and musical performances because they want only to see winners. Some disdain the use of complimentary tickets and leave seats vacant because they can watch on TV or just lack desire to get off their duffs. We see vacancies on the ballots, as few are willing to serve in public office.
The Highline High School Alumni Foundation will soon be seeking energetic people to fill positions on a winning team. We can use some backups and revitalization to support the coming generations of Highline High graduates. Indeed, some goals are in place that can avoid any Foundation fiscal cliff or budget cuts because of sequestration. Finding new ways to enlist 7000 total members at $10 per year, in addition to recruiting new lifetime members, will promote the ongoing success of our scholarship program. We need individuals to step up for each position, as future leaders, to guarantee that this valuable program will continue.
Can you fill the voids soon to occur? Can you instill new blood and life into our Alumni Foundation and maintain the tradition of Highline High School excellence? How would you sustain scholarships and implement new ones to open the doors of opportunity for graduating seniors? Who would you induct into the Athletic Hall of Fame? Who should be honored as our Alumnus of the Year? What worthy student would you choose to receive one of our scholarships? Get involved!

What Highline Means to Me
by David Nguyen, winner of 2012 Harry E. Lemon Memorial Scholarship
What does Highline mean to me? Since my freshman year, Highline was very important to me. Highline was my second family, my second home, my second life. Highline not only welcomed me, but accepted me for who I am. Fresh out of middle school, I was having trouble finding a place to fit in. Highline allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and since then, I have met people who I not only get along with, but also allow me to just be myself. As a young child, I never had many friends that I could trust, but upon entering Highline High School, I was able to open up and trust others.
Why is Highline my second family? The friends that I have made are friends that I consider brothers and sisters. Teachers like Mr. Craig and Mr. Crawley are the father and uncles that provide you the support and advice you need daily in order to fully accomplish your goals for the day. A counselor like Ms. Zuber is the crazy aunt that always knows what to say. A secretary like Gracie is the mother of everyone. She can be mean and strict when she needs to be but loving and caring at the same time. Mr. Edmunds would be the grandfather that tells the story of how long ago it happened and of course, there are also the cousins. A cousin like Mrs. Reilly is a cousin you go to when things are getting rough and you need help to get a sense of direction. At home, my family was never around that much for me to go to for advice or help but because of my enrollment at Highline High School, I am able to make up for that loss of security.
Why is Highline my second home? It’s my home away from home because I spend so much time there! When things are getting rough and tough at home, I see going to Highline as a way to escape and have the home setting that I sometimes dream about. Highline is a second home to me because I know for a fact that whatever the reason it may be, Highline can be a place where I can go to clear my mind and distract myself for the day to just worry about something else – me.
Why is Highline my second life? It has given me a sense of character that I never thought I had. I was able to break out of my comfort zone and actually be who I wanted to be. I don’t have to fake a smile and act as if everything is okay. I don’t have to put on a show whenever I need someone to talk to. I am able to do stupid things, not get judged; and have people laugh with me, not at me. Highline is my second life because Highline allows me to be someone that I hope to be later in my life - a successful student who takes his work very seriously and one day hopes to be an entrepreneur, owning his own film studio to live out his dream as a film producer.
