Jacob Hellyer starts saying goodbye to both high school and Texas
Many students work out during summer vacation to get their summer body, or just for fun but not this one. Hellyer will be working out to get ready for his new job in the navy as a diver. Senior Jacob Hellyer gets ready to start saying goodbye to both high school friends and family.
“Honestly, I’m probably going to miss him, but he’s not going to be gone forever,” sophomore Peyton Snowden said.
Hellyer will be leaving with the support of many friends and family.
“I’m sad that he’s leaving but I’m happy that he’s doing what he loves,” freshman Tamara Weiss said.
Hellyer believes he is doing the right thing and will leave proudly.
“I chose to serve; it involves the pride I have for my country,” he said. “It’s an exciting job.”
