Student Nomination Story

Boswell has been my cheer coach since 7th grade and will be until I’m a senior. She has impacted my life greatly. When I was in the 7th grade, I was having a hard time adjusting to middle school. One day we were working out, and needless to say, we were all struggling. She was walking back and forth and kept yelling “Five seconds! You can do anything for five seconds!”. These words caused me to disassociate myself from reality and think: I CAN do anything for five seconds. She taught me to live life five seconds at a time and to keep going when things get hard. I hope she knows how impactful she has been in my life.
