High School Stories

April 23rd, 2013 · 1 Comment

High school was a time when we believed friendships would last forever and prom was the most anticipated event of the year. If you have a graduate this year, remind them that one day they’ll be able to look back at their time in school and smile—even if they don’t enjoy it right now. They’ll be able to pull out old photos, relive the moment in their minds and smile. To celebrate the graduation (and prom) season coming soon, here are some Artbeads employee high school stories!

Becky

“This was my senior year; I was a homecoming “princess.” For seniors, there were princesses and princes and a king and queen. During the homecoming game we got to ride in convertibles around the track and wave to the crowd! It was the only day that it was acceptable for me to wear a sparkly tiara everywhere I went.” – Becky, Copywriter

Cortney

Cortney, Vice President, wore this gorgeous, handmade green dress to her prom. Her husband was her date back then!

Sherri

Sherri, our New Product Coordinator, was 17 when she graduated from high school…and is glad that the feathered hair style has passed.

Teri

Jewelry Designer Teri McCamish back in the day, sporting her “preppy LL Bean oxford cloth shirt and ribbon head band.”

Brittany

Brittany, our Web Content Publisher on the right, kept it real with her besties in high school and even after graduation. All three still keep in touch and reminisce about when they were teens when they get together.

Marissa

Read about my prom story in a previous post—Swarovski crystals make an appearance!

    Some of the best times in my life. Then after college (and even a little bit in college) real life begins.
