It is inherent to the nature of all FRC teams that our students will leave. As a long-time mentor I've seen many exceptional Robowranglers come and go over the years. Whether they only popped onto the team for a portion of a season, or have been part of the family for years and years - our time with them always feels too short.
Have we done our part in preparing them for what comes next?
Were we successful as a team and as mentors? - How do we define 'successful'?
What lessons does our team want to leave with those who come and inevitably go?
