Accomplished, educated and energized, this year’s senior class at Cherry Cheek High School will leave with an impressive list of achievements.

“I am pleased that the students have shown they are capable of leading and connecting our community members of all ages to the school,” Silva added. “Most importantly, Cherry Creek students have proven to be strong citizens who care about each other and their school. I am proud to be a part of the Bruin family.”
