You might not remember the lessons of Algebra II, or even the people you ate lunch with and swore would be your Best Friends Forever, but when it comes to high school memories, there are some stories that stick. High school superlatives endure beyond yearbooks into the anecdotes that define your town.
A Reddit thread asked "What made the 'high school legend' become a legend?" and these legendary stories deliver.
When I was in 11th grade, a guy a year older than me, in grade 12, saved a grade 9 girl from being abducted by her estranged father in the school parking lot. Her dad hadn't been in her life for years and had previously tried to take her from her elementary school. This being her first year in high school, I guess he tried again. The 12th grader heard her scream as her dad tried to force her into his car and he ran over and got involved, apparently punching the dad before the dad got back in his car and sped off.
Guy was a legit hero at the school.-BigPZ
