Your Views: Parkview School District has turned out many success stories

Currently, most Americans are concerned with “success,” but no one can clearly define it. Every individual has his or her own perspective.

This word “success” seems to be a large part of what people think is the problem with Parkview School District, as some perceive Parkview alumni as unsuccessful. I hope one day that those who see our alumni as unsuccessful will notice that Parkview has supplied many great, spectacular and, yes, “successful” people.

I am a member of the Parkview Class of 2009 and know many successful alumni from my class, as well as the many other classes I had the pleasure to share an education with. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience and psychology (minor in biology) 3 years after completing my courses at Parkview. Among my “successes” are graduating magna cum laude, as well as receiving all-college and departmental honors in psychology.

I am currently interviewing for graduate programs to pursue my dream of becoming a neuropsychologist. During my transition, I moved home with my family in Orfordville. I make an effort to maintain relationships with peers and staff that I met while at Parkview, even working temporarily as a substitute teacher within the district.

I have a strong connection to Parkview’s past, present and future. I am proud of the education I received and would not be “successful” without the amazing foundations provided in the Parkview School District.
