Operation Graduation 2013: Madison Peavler (Seneca, Mo.)
I’d like to thank everyone that has helped me over the last four years. I cannot believe I graduate this upcoming Saturday. It’s quite amazing; I cannot believe I’m done. I’m ready for the next chapter of my life. This is just the beginning of new era.
I’d like to thank Sharon and Chris Myers the most. They took me in when they didn’t have to. They bought me things I needed. Their daughter, Adrienne Myers, who I consider my little sister, is the reason I live at their house. I’d like to thank her as well. You all have grown on me, and mean a lot to me. I consider you all part of my family, and that’s because you consider me part of yours. So thank you so very much for all the love and support.
I dropped out for most of my junior year due to personal issues and bad mistakes. I lost my mother on December 9, 2012. It really changed me for the better. The next day I enrolled back into high school, so I could finish. Graduating means a lot to me because it meant so much to my mother. Because of my actions while she was still alive, she lost a lot of faith in me even finishing. But I’m glad that I am. It’s all for my mother, Janie Sharp.
I’d like to thank Ombudsman for accepting me in their school, and pushing me to do my best. They told me from day one that I could do it, and if I put my mind to it I would do it. Look at me now, I graduate May 18. So thank you all for the support and love. Most of all thank you for believing in me when I couldn’t believe in myself.
