The high school years are the ones that many people remember fondly. You make some long-lasting friendships, attend school dances, and get prepared to become an adult. For other students, high school is not exactly a walk in the park. Bullying is a very real thing, and for some students, they simply want to finish high school and start the next chapter of their lives. Deserae Turner was one of those students who really enjoyed high school, and looked forward to attending class every day. She got on well with all of her classmates, which is why it was shocking that some would choose to do what they did.
Finishing High School
Deserae was your typical high school student. At 17, she was preparing herself for the SATs, and striving to get the highest marks possible. She dreamed of attending one of the top colleges in the country, and of doing that, she would need top marks.
Her friend group was very supportive of her dreams, and they would often spend time talking about what it would be like when they finished high school. Anything seemed possible.
