Arvada West High School graduate and student speaker Ashley Rizzuto told her peers to fill their minds and not to take their ideas for granted.
“Knowledge is the single thing that no one can take from you,” she said. “Fill your soul with anything you’re passionate about because that’s where your creativity will flourish.”
Rizzuto is one of the 369 Wildcat graduates who received a diploma May 19 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield.
At the ceremony, six valedictorians were recognized: Aysha Asueva, Garrett Charles, Brendan Patterson, Alexander Roush, Miranda Schiffbauer and Bryan Suchey.
Together, the graduating class at Arvada West High School earned more than $4 million in scholarships.
