Small class shows a big heart

Community gathers for 118th CC-V commencement

Posted

Graduation is almost always a bittersweet moment but the 19 seniors who received their diplomas on May 24 in the Cripple Creek-Victor High School gym carried it off with style, carrying on the school tradition of giving fresh flowers to their loved ones in the audience and sharing their favorite quotes in a video presentation. After commencement, they all gathered in the cafeteria for cake and punch, tears and laughter.

High school graduation means moving on: Going to college, finding jobs and careers or perhaps joining the military. At least CC-V 11 students received scholarships including a full-ride Daniel’s Fund Scholarship for class valedictorian Tobias Wuellner, who plans to attend the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. Class salutatorian Sarah Wywias is one of this year’s recipients of the Woodland Park Chamber of Commerce Wagon Boss scholarship and she also received the CC-V Booster Club and Ute Pass Kiwanis scholarships. Two graduates, Katie Lyn Tapia and Karense Marie Zaccardi, have already enlisted in the U.S. Navy.

Graduates aren’t the only ones moving on. CC-V High School Principal Trudy Vader is set to become the Hayden School District superintendent and current CC-V Superintendent Sue Holmes has taken the superintendent position at the Buena Vista School District.
