We, the seniors, decided that we wanted to surprise Mrs. Winton with our last article by properly saying goodbye to her.

“Thank you for allowing me to join journalism. I wish I was able to be in the class the whole year, but I am glad I got the time I did. I have enjoyed both AP Literature and Journalism. I will forever be thankful for this opportunity, and I will be sure to give you a shout out when I get on TV.” -Tatum Baldwin

“I cannot thank you enough for all the hard work that you have put into my senior year in AP lit and journalism. I know that we have had a few bumps in the road and words don’t do justice to explain how much you have impacted me. I’m sorry if I’ve ever caused you any stress (lol), but I can confidently say that I’ve grown as a student and a person just by having you as a teacher! Keep those journalism students in line next year! I can’t wait to visit and see how it’s grown! I love you Mrs. Winton! Have a wonderful summer!!!” – Lizz York

I’d like to start off by saying that you have taught me more than any other teacher I’ve ever had. I respected and enjoyed coming into your class each day, preparing to get my weave RIPPED from my head. You are a gifted teacher and a genuinely good person. You once said that every time an old person dies it’s like a library burning down and I am so blessed to have been able to partake in reading from some of yours.” – Isaac Rackley

First of all, I just want to apologize for being such a hassle these two years; I know I’ve missed enough school for you to snatch my weave more than a couple of times. However, you have honestly been one of these biggest blessings in my life. When I started at CCCHS, I didn’t know anybody or anything. All I remember is you talking to me after class and making sure that I knew my way and had everything I needed. It was just a small gesture, but it had a big impact on me. This year has been crazy, to say the least. This newspaper had been a big blessing to me, but also a big frustration at times. Many nights were spent working on articles and complaining profusely. I’ve been frustrated, but this class has been the place of some of my biggest joys. I made new friends and grew close to some of the best people I’ve ever met. I’ll never forget this experience. Every day, you’ve pushed me. You’ve made me become a better student, and better writer, and a better person. This class, this newspaper, has given me something to be so proud of. I’ll never be able to thank you enough for that.” – Farrah Fletcher

“I can not even begin to describe how thankful I am for the two years I was in your class. You are honestly the only teacher I have ever had that has taught me something new each and every day. You prepare your students for college, but also life in general. You are an inspiration, and I aspire to be a woman as strong and intelligent as you are someday. When I first took your class junior year, I was kinda terrified. Everyone always talks about how hard your class is and I was not confident in my writing abilities. Your class has helped me believe in myself and become confident in my abilities. I remember talking about the Dolly Parton Christmas movie with you and realizing that you are not as scary as everyone made you seem. Since then, I have truly loved your class, even when we read poems that didn’t even sound like English. I am honored that you picked me to be your first editor-in-chief, I hope I did not let you down. I will never forget your Harper Lee story, or how you left your dog outside to be sucked up in a tornado. Thank you for EVERYTHING.” – Vanessa Willis  P.S. – keep on snatchin’!
