Jarod ... A Senior with Style

Have you noticed how everyone seems to have their style? Some have that rockstar personality, some evoke their inner self through their clothes, their style is what they wear. Some find their style in the mix and the mingle; others offer themselves in subdued hues. We're all so different.

Jarod's at the doorstep of his senior year and has shown those who know him a style that is altogether cool; yet warm. He's a guy folks like being around, for his humor, for his kindness, for his ability to have fun, for his genuineness. Give him part of a day and you'll quickly find yourself entertained and impressed.

He's spent a good part of these past years marking his life by improvement. If that counts as a style, count me one of his fans. Through hard work and determination, he's turned himself into a serious runner, a talented athlete who once doubted his ability and his potential. He's turned himself into a student, a capable academician who once didn't turn much in. He's turned himself into a leader, a determined captain of the ship who beckons others to follow.

I wish you all could see THOSE THINGS in Jarod's senior portraits, for those are the signatures of his style that those who know him see on a daily basis. But if you look closely here, look into his eyes, you might catch a glimpse of a young man who knows who he is, what he's about, and where he's heading.

That, is Jarod's style.
