2007 BHS Grad Aimee McCarron Is Now Published

Congratulations to Aimee McCarron, a member of the BHS Class of 2007, on becoming published. Aimee had her story "The Help I Could Give" included in Chicken Soup for the Soul - Teens Talk High School. Her story is the first in the book's third chapter which is called "Doing the Right Thing."

In brief, Aimee recounted a tough call she had to make during her high school career which involved going to school staff to get a friend, who was involved in some risky behavior, much needed help. This choice comes up often for high school students who see friends partaking in dangerous behaviors and struggle with the thought of going to an adult who can provide help. We are proud of Aimee for making the tough choice and even prouder for sharing her story with others so they can read her words and gain the strength to also "Do the Right Thing."
