  • i, kiersten lomax, myself, was a student at blount high school from the years of 2001-05. as a student i always looked forward to the faculty and staff and that particular to be there for me in anyway possible when it came to my education, endeavours or any other future plans i may have had, unfortunately i must was given up on because now i feel like there is no one there for me. i was involved in school extra-curriculum activities but at the same time, i had no place or time for teachers to be hollering and screaming at me, nevertheless, having to obey strict that wasnt mandatory at my own home. i wasnt a bad kid but discipline shouldnt come before education, i do love blount, love # 1 alumni, kiersten k. lomax
