Come meet local author Preston Pierott as he signs Cheat Codes to High School, his young adult nonfiction book about having a successful strategy for high school.
Preston Pierott is a 2017 University of Houston graduate with a degree in computer engineering. In high school he graduated at the top of his class as well as receiving many other awards.
I graduated high school in 2012. By the end of my senior year I had become Valedictorian, Class President, Homecoming Prince, Prom King, and voted "Most Likely to Succeed." Was I the smartest kid in school? -No. Was I the most popular student when I was a freshman? -Absolutely not. To be honest, I was just an average student. I was able to achieve all those things by both working hard and being knowledgeable of the system. Hard work can only take you so far: you will still need a strategy. I realized what gave me an advantage over other students was that I knew things they did not. I am not a doctor or expert on education, I am just a student. This allows me to delve into subject matters in which "professionals" lack first-hand experience to venture in and discuss, while keeping it as simple as possible.
Now, you have the opportunity to learn this information, in addition to other "Easter eggs" of wisdom that most students will not learn until it is too late. I have compiled this information into a simplified guide that will assist you in your years to come. I really wanted to write this book not only to offer students cheat codes to high school, but also to express to other students that you do not have to be a genius or necessarily the most popular to be successful in high school.
High school can be rough; however, with proper guidance you can accomplish more than imaginable. In this book, I will include numerous tricks and tips I have learned in efforts to assist you to being successful in high school. By reading this book, it is not guaranteed you will achieve everything that I have; however, if you follow the directions and suggestions provided, while working hard, staying focused, and being consistent, there is no reason why you should not be successful in high school.
