Will B. PROUD
As the year winds down for the Olney ISD I sit here thinking back about all I have photographed, all the games I have covered, all the Pride of Olney I have listened to perform, the Olney FFA, the UIL’s many programs and many other school activities that go on throughout the year. One thing that keeps coming to mind while I am sifting through the memories is just how proud I am of the Cub spirit. Cubs may not always win but they never give up. Cubs have great sportsmanship, pride and a genuine team spirit. To me a Cub is just not the youth that play sports but all the Olney youth who take part in any of the many activities that represent Olney ISD and Olney proper. As I think back my heart swells with pride of all the hard work and effort you have put in this year. It does not go unnoticed. Its nice to win but just because you didn’t win or excel does not mean you failed. Sometimes in life it’s about the journey not the destination. This final year of high school is something you will look back to the rest of your life. Hopefully you will have fond memories of the school and your friends.
As you look ahead to the future after graduation, I hope you will hold those memories and lessons close to your heart and pull them out whenever you have a doubt or a low point. Remember that Cub spirit and it will see you through to the next day. I wish you seniors the very best as you go out into the world and carve your piece out of it. May God bless you on your next journey.
This is Will B. Proud saying Life is a journey, enjoy the ride.
