I remember freshman orientation in the PAC like it was yesterday.

Mr. Harris looked at us and our parents and said, “Today is the beginning of the end. We’ll blink and they’ll be walking across the stage in the BancorpSouth Arena graduating.”

And here we are, about to graduate.

We have seen a lot of changes here at THS over the past four years: blue turf, door card scanners and cafeteria/courtyard renovations. Even we as students have changed, but one thing will never change: we will always be a ripple in the Golden Wave.

Contrary to popular belief in today’s society, change is a good thing. Change is a good thing because it brings about new opportunities — new friendships, experiences and challenges. But we will never be able to change our roots, and that is a good thing!

As we move through some of the biggest changes over the next few months, we can never forget where we came from and the “little people” back home.

Always remember that girl who helped you out in Mrs. Inman’s class and that guy who always cracked jokes in Miss Friar’s class to keep everyone laughing. Always remember the ladies in the office who knew all of the answers to every question. Always remember to “use the filter” (TBraden, I’m talking to you!) anytime you snapchat while on campus. Finally, always remember that one teacher(s) who gave you confidence and helped you more than words can describe.

Before you leave the BancorpSouth Arena on May 20, thank the people who made the biggest impact on your high school career. It takes a lot of ripples to make the Tupelo High School Golden Wave.

Change is good, but don’t forget your roots. And always be respectful, be responsible and be safe.
