Coming from Lincoln, Nebraska, I have grown accustomed to being around a large variety of people, with different interests, backgrounds, etc. etc.; however, going to Northeast High School, it did not prepare me for what I have experienced here so far. The registration was not only organized and streamlined, but it was full of some of the most polite people I have had the pleasure of meeting, with such a surprising concentration of them under one roof. Aside from being polite, they were also extremely outgoing, each and every one of them excited to start talking to someone, anyone, who would listen. While every school has their collection of leaders and scholars, some more than others, seeing so many in one place was quite a surprise, but a welcome one. Specifically, Bataan has some of the most sincere, intelligent, ambitious and outgoing people I have ever seen assembled thus far, with a wide variety of origins that they have traveled far and wide from. Even though with such a variety of people, from very different places and with very different lives, they have been able to come together like they have lived down the street from each other for years. I can not speak for any other town, but Bataan certainly seems to have developed strong relationships already that will be interesting to see where they go. The future is unknown, but what seems to be already set in stone is that Bataan will grow unbreakable bonds, maybe even stronger than anywhere else.
