Cherry Creek grads go out strong

Posted

With the highest ACT composite score in the school's history, the 828 graduating seniors from Cherry Creek High School had good reason to throw their hats in the air during their graduation at the Stutler Bowl on May 24.

“Regardless of where you are, what you do and who you become, know that your time at (Cherry) Creek has prepared you for any future you choose,” Samantha Ginsberg said during her speech, “Shaping History.”

With Cherry Creek's talented musicians — including Edwina Maben, Alec Doniger, Jeremy Doniger, Natalie Dow and Brian Sellers — transitioning between speeches and graduation groups, the families of graduates cheered together and set off their air horns.

Speeches from the students recalled class memories and called for a future of activism and change.

“If we don't vote, if we don't protest, if we don't try to change the way things are done, we will fall short of greatness,” said Bianca Weick in her speech, “Speak Out.”“What this world needs is not an influx of CEOs, but an influx of people who care. If just one of us has the courage to stand up for something, anything, it will cause a ripple effect.”
