TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — High school seniors in our area are getting ready to graduate, and for many, college is the next step.
For one Godby senior, college will be a little easier. Friday Ruth Castro received a free laptop and Microsoft Office at their Senior Awards Ceremony. It was all thanks to the lawfirm of Butler, Weihmullter, Katz and Craig. Ruth won their essay contest where she talked about the challenges of high school.
“The essay seemed to be a topic that I could really resonate with,” says Castro. “Because it always talked about famous people like Thomas Edison and how he was a failure at some points, but he actually did one thing that was right. And I think that a lot high school is having a lot of failures but, you can end up successful if you just graduate.”
Ruth and other Godby seniors will graduate May 26th at 7:00 p.m. She’s planning to go to UNF in Jacksonville to study journalism with a minor in photography.
