Senior, Khalyl Laws, has decided it’s time to come out of his shell and show the community what he’s capable of.

    Laws moved to Pocomoke High his sophomore year. He was very quiet and he wasn’t involved in much because he was the “new guy”. He would go to straight to class and go home.

“It took me until the middle of second semester of sophomore year to start making friends because I was shy and had a lot on my mind.” said Laws.

    There’s usually a challenge for students transferring to a new school. Being around new people and adjusting to a new system. Laws stated, “It was hard at first but since the people here were pretty nice and the school is small, I didn’t struggle as much with being the new kid.”.

    Being a new student can sometimes mean you aren’t well known. Getting involved in extracurricular activities can help get your name and face well known around the building. “I was happy to be a part of the choir and it was even more exciting joining the track team.” said Laws.

    When you’re new, you want to take part in activities where the entire community will know who you are. Pocomoke High presents a musical every winter. Laws decided it was time for his face to not only be known around the school, but the community as well. “I did the play because Mrs. Hudson asked me to and also because it was a new experience for me since I had never been in a play before” said Laws.

    For Laws, this year has to be one of the best. He’s a senior which means it’s almost time to step out into the real world. Stepping out of his shell would be needed now more than ever. “I’m extremely proud of myself for coming out of my shell since I’ve always wanted to stay to myself in the past.” stated Laws.

    Laws has mastered the ways of student life while being a transfer student. Now he has to take on the challenge of being a new “student” in the real world.
