Hello my name is Jonathan Thomas, a current senior from Richlands High School. The past four years have been amazing, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. Attending school for twelve years in Richlands has taught me that success requires sacrifices and dedication, but above all anything is possible if you truly give it your best. Richlands has been the perfect environment in which to grow up and make lasting friendships. The small town of Richlands has helped me prosper, and I cannot thank my friends and family enough for the help they have given me throughout the years. During my high school career, I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in extracurricular activities such as academic derby, cross-country, track, SkillsUSA, Student-2-Student, FCA, 4-H FIRST Robotics, BETA, Student Council, and the Engineering Academy. I firmly believe that my experiences, friendships, and the challenges that we experienced as a team in track and cross-country helped shape the person I am today. I was honored to have served as the senior class president, and it was with great pride that I represented the Class of 2013! If I had the opportunity, I would go back and do it all again! I am proud to say that I am from Richlands High School, and the staff, students and the Senior Class of 2013 have played a significant role in my life. GO WILDCATS!
