Brooke Rodenberg 12, is a senior at Lewis-Palmer High School. She has been a varsity cheerleader now for 3 years and loves it. She is involved in school activities and takes advantage of the opportunities that her High School gives her. Rodenberg says she enjoys being a senior here at LP.

“I like being a senior here, but sometimes it can be scary. It’s my last year so that’s a really big plus. Everyone in the past years make it out to be something that’s so great and fantastic but for me, it’s just okay,” Rodenberg explains, “It is very rewarding to look back on my freshman year to see how far I have come.”

Here at Lewis-Palmer, there are a lot of activities and opportunities such as sports games and camp fires for making friends and being social. She has gained trust from her parents and teachers over the years and therefore, trust comes with freedom.

“Even at home my parents give me more trust and freedom. They allow me to stay out later and go to more events and hangouts than they did in the past. Being a senior you get a lot more grace from teachers, parents, and coaches than you used to. I think this is the case due to Senioritis being a real thing.” as she laughs.

Rodenberg changed tremendously in her high school years and is proud of where she has come. “People change a lot during their high school years, including myself. Maturity level goes up and morals and values change. I went into high school with a good group of friends and i’ve also met some new people along the way.”

Back in 2016, Riley Winters, a good friend of Rodenberg’s, committed suicide and it was the hardest challenge she had to face. Along with friends, it caused ongoing hurdles they had to face and overcome together.

“My friend Riley from DCC committed suicide and it stopped time for all the people who knew her and who were affected, including me. At the time in my life, I never thought things would get better. It is still hard for me but it has made me stronger and become a better person.” Rodenbers said.

“The most important thing in high school and the advice I would give my younger self would be to stay organized and turn in work on time because that can kill your grade.” She says. “Overall, high school has treated me well. I can’t wait to see what’s next in my life and see where I end up.”
