Lufkin students set goals for the future at senior sunrise

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Lufkin High School seniors were up before the sun Friday morning making plans for the future.

The students participated in a senior sunrise, a Lufkin tradition where they write down their goals for the rest of the year and the future.

"I hope to graduate with honors, go to college and pursue what God has planned for me," said Lauren Flowers, Lady Pack Soccer.

"My goal is to graduate in the top 20 percent of my class," said Morgan Anderson, Senior Class 2nd Vice President.

"I wanted to collect 5,000 books by the end of the year for my project books that benefit and that was a really big deal for me," said Will Chance, Student Council Vice President.

Friday morning Lufkin High School seniors watched as the sun rose over Abe Martin Stadium with goals in mind, preparing for the future.

Senior sunrise is an opportunity for the students to reflect on how far they've come during their high school career and something to look forward to upon graduation.

"It's also a time for us to refocus and set new goals for ourselves," said Chance.

This is the fourth year for the LHS tradition and at sunrise the class wrote down what they hope to achieve by and after graduation.

Senior class secretary Asia Harrell says after she graduates she hopes to attend Oklahoma University to study nursing and she believes sharing goals with classmates and writing them down will keep everyone motivated through the rest of the year.

"Writing down your goals now will help you be  more prepared for the future so you can know what to look forward to step by step so you can make it to the big image," said Harrell.

Six months from now at graduation the class will receive their list of goals and Josie Solis says knowing that she will see the list again reminds her to work hard.

"At the end of the year I don't want to see my paper that I wrote and be disappointed so it made me even more motivated to achieve my goals," said Solis.

And when the sunsets for these seniors they hope to feel a sense of accomplishment when they see how far they've come.

 The class of 2014 will graduate on May 30th
