During high school I worked at Mellow Mushroom and Bee’s Knees Boutique; having a job helped me expand my time management skills and has given me skills I hope to utilize in the future. Also, I spent the summer of 2019 living in Seville and Cadiz, Spain where I was able to improve my Spanish skills. I speak to my host mom almost every day and look forward to going back to visit.

    Congratulations, Reagan! Wishing you every success at NYU
  • Cool Uncle Josh & Aunt Sue Tyrell
    Reagan, My how time flies. I can't believe that it has been what...5-6 years since we were all together?! And here you are graduating, ready to take that next step in life and go to college. My how time flies…. Your Aunt Sue and I wish you nothing but the best. This is such a big step but we both know you will be able to handle it no problem. We can’t wait to see you all again but with the times we are in, only time will tell when that time will be. Which brings me to my next point.. Now we aren’t going to hound you about this, but I feel I must mention it. I remember a time when you were ready to come to our side of the nation and attend UT. Now we don’t hold grudges, but I think you are going to have to make it up to your Aunt Sue. She loves the “Big Apple” also, so I see many airline miles being acquired. So please show her a good time =) There are so many things that I want to say, but I do not want to bore you with me babbling on and on about things that you probably already know, but allow me to say a few things. I know as a younger person, it can get annoying hearing older people “tell you what to do” or how ever you want to word it, but (and this will only come with age) when we (“the older folks”) try to give you those “words of wisdom” we only mean to help you, or maybe see something in a different light. I hope none of this comes off as me telling you what to do, or trying to point you in a direction. You have your own compass, that is what you must follow, all I can try to do is pass along some things that have helped me out in my journey through life. I’ve learned most of them later than I would have liked, but you are a much smarter person than myself. Time -- Time is the only thing we can never get back. Don’t waste it, don’t let it pass you by. Be conscious of your decisions and how they utilize your time. Enjoy your time, enjoy your experiences. As a wiser man once said “Just because you are alive, does not mean you are living”. Be true to you -- Stay “you”. There are so many types of pressures out there in this world of ours. Don’t let anyone or anything try to pressure you into being something, or doing something you don’t feel is “you”. Simple as that. If someone/something is putting pressure on you to not be “you”, just ask yourself. Is this the type of people/things I want in my life. Surround yourself with people that have similar motivations -- Doing this can not only make some great friends, but they can also lead to motivating you even more. Learn everyday -- Do not let yourself stagnate or get complacent. Learn every day. Whether it is your craft or simply a hobby. I could go on and on but hopefully you get the point and hopefully I haven’t made you roll your eyes yet. We wish you the best Reagan, nothing but the best. Aunt Sue & “Cool Uncle Josh”

    Teri (Sulmers) Bouchard from class of 2003 here. I went to NYU, both for undergrad (CAS, ‘07) and law school (‘12). It was an amazing school and experience. I’m so excited to see other Lakeview grads heading to NYU. Go violets!
  • James Tyrell (AKA Grampy)
    What an awesome background. I am immediately submitting your info to both political camps. The Democrats are actively searching for a qualified woman VP and the Republicans must have a similar need somewhere in a powerful and influential position.I am so proud of what you have accomplished, and prouder still of your spirit and goodness. I hope to visit you in the Big Apple. We will tour the city and of course, we will wear purple. Best wishes and loads of love, Grampy. P.S. Remember to enjoy this journey.
