Lane High School, Burley High School, and Charlottesville High School

And we got to Lane; it was like no one helped you. They didn’t call on you in class. They gave you the assignments, you did the assignments, and you end up with a C or a B, and never an A, if it ought to be. So it was like, you go from being an A, B student, just to being a B, C student. And you go like, well, what’s going on here? My friends over there, they’re still making A’s and poking their chest out, and I’m down here making B’s and C’s. This is not what I want to do. This is not right. But, yeah, no one prepared us for that.
