​The variety of voices left in the wake of graduation will continue to carry across the incredibly vast, sometimes murky, always enduring waters of life.  In their own words, seniors express the impact they wish to leave behind here at PCHS as they continue on their respective journeys, as a pebble gently skipping along the surface of the water creates eternal ripples in the tide.

"I hope my legacy will be one demonstrating the power of big dreams.  Dreams can do great things and impact the world.  Dreams can lead one to great places academically and socially." ~Alyssa Twilbeck

 

"I am leaving a legacy of pursuing your dreams until you reach them.  To keep pushing and trying your best until you are happy with where you end up.  This year, marching band made finals for the first time in school history; that was our dream and we worked hard to get there.  Never settle for less than you deserve.  This legacy of pursuing your best self is important for future generations at Pine Creek because that is the only way our school and community will continue to get better and achieve greatness in all aspects." ~Hannah Miller

 

"The legacy I am leaving is one of personal connections and musical successes.  I see the most important legacy someone can leave as one that people look back on and say, 'Wow, he was a genuinely nice person that supported everyone he could.'  This legacy of mine will especially be found in the band room, where I spent four years creating an inclusive environment for all people who entered.  In addition to the connection I've made, I leave a legacy of being one of the seniors to get the PCHS marching band to state finals for the first time!" ~Austin Spafford

 

"I think it's so important to have example figures in the school because trying to be like someone you admire can be a much desirable goal as a freshman." ~Timothy Bentele

 

"Hopefully, by encouraging volunteering not just in the Springs community but also on a much more global scale in some cases, I've helped to develop an attitude of service and compassion here at Pine Creek." ~Nicole Eiland

 

"Our individuality should no longer be held behind the walls of insecurity.  Embracing our differences and passions is how we are able to grow; and holding back is keeping us from the light.  Our individuality should promote and express a creative nature in society.  It seems in the present time there are people and corporations that do not differ or stand out because there is always that expectation to follow the trend.  I want my legacy to recognize the differences we see as a limitless boundary, and embrace them in a positive way.  This is why I decided to take up Graphic Design at Colorado Mountain College –in hope that what I create will impact how the world sees and deals with aberration.  The world needs to know that it's okay to embrace what is unseen." ~Sabrina Miller

 

"The legacy I am leaving is for all of the students who are kind of afraid to show who they really are to everyone, to tell them that they should.  That although it may feel like others won't accept you, they will and that you will attract the right kind of friends.  I feel like in our society today we are kind of taught to change who we are so others like us.  Whereas I am trying to share the beauty in being who you are and surrounding yourself with people who encourage your individuality." ~Bethany Welton

 

"I hope I am leaving a legacy of acceptance.  Just saying 'Hi!' can greatly affect someone.  I have been someone who has connected with all different types of people and I hope freshmen continue to do this.  I hope everyone knows they're valued." ~Evan Lennon

 

"More than anything, I hope I have shown that you need to embody who you are and not let other people influence your personality and your interests.  It is so important to use your skills to embrace your potential and figure out how you can make a difference in the lives of others." ~Taylor Weissman

 

"I am leaving behind a legacy of kindheartedness and generosity.  Throughout high school I always made sure I cared for those around me to make sure they feel safe and know that I care about them.  I allowed myself to pour my heart into other people, to have them feel happy and loved.  This is what makes Pine Creek a family unit." ~Camille Lucas

 

"My legacy is one of positivity and happiness.  I always have made it a goal of mine to come to school with a smile on my face and a positive attitude.  This is important to me because high school is challenging and it is important to surround yourself and others with happiness." ~Kennedy Caldwell

 

"I don't think I am necessarily leaving behind a legacy for the fact that at the end of the day, I am just one student.  But over the last four years (and in the future), I have remedied this by making my community smaller and hopefully helping those in that community in any way I can.  But within the niches, I hope that I have made people laugh and have brought people together –such as starting lettuce club – which I essentially made to make people laugh." ~Marilyn Rutecki

 

"I'm hoping to leave a legacy of good vibes.  Even if nothing I do or have done is remembered, when a teacher or student hears my name I hope it will give that person a smile.  Every legacy is important.  The impacts students leave on the environment they're in all add up to their legacy, and the students' impacts collectively form the legacy our class leaves.  As a class we were reputably successful, bright, compassionate, and influential.  I'm honored to have been a part of it." ~Jack Harrington
