Instilling in me the belief that I could achieve anything. Often times small schools and their respective communities receive a bum rap because opportunities seem more limited than those offered by larger communities and schools. However, at Franklinville Central School, I was able to participate in a wide variety of activities involving academics, athletics, and extracurriculars. I made and maintained a close network of friends who made attending school worth while. Motivation is essential to any endeavor. I always felt extremely motivated to participate in class, on the playing field, and anywhere else. Perhaps I do not remember everything I learned in 2nd period Social Studies, or 9th period Science. However, I will always remember the feeling and importance of motivation, determination, diligence, and as a result success that was fostered as a result of my education at Franklinville Central School.
