It's been a year that no one at Berrendo Middle School will ever forget, especially 13-year-old Kendal Sanders.

On the day her classmate Mason Campbell pleaded no contest to shooting her and another classmate at school, Berrendo Middle School students got their yearbook.

KOB Eyewitness News 4 was with Kendal as she flipped through the pages.

Since the shooting, Kendal has been going through a painful recovery.

The pellets are causing pain and recurring infections, and may prevent her from ever being a mother.

Kendal says seeing the yearbook, makes her miss her friends.

"Seeing all the activities that they do and seeing everyone like with their friends taking pictures, it's kind of hard because I wish I was like there for those things and I can't be," Kendal said.

Kendal says she's looking forward to returning to school next year.

But before she does that, one more challenge.

She plans to face her shooter in court when he is sentenced this summer

"I'm scared. I'm scared to like, see Mason. I feel like when I see him, I just want to run up to him and start crying and hug him, but you won't know how you feel until it actually happens," Kendal said.

She'll find out July 2.
