Littleton High seniors get warm send-off

Posted

A joyous crowd under glorious sunshine cheered the Littleton High School Class of 2018 on May 25 as the seniors became graduates and launched the next steps of their life journeys.

The sense of camaraderie among graduates felt palpable, in keeping with the words of Sarah Elizabeth Payson, student body president: “To the Class of 2018 — thank you for being a phenomenal class the last four years.”

Valedictorian Reganne Layne Fornstrom exhorted her classmates: “Go experience and create more moments and find your own extraordinary path.”

Principal Amy Oaks recounted a recent news story about Greeley West High School teacher Brian Holmes, who was taking students for an end-of-the-school-year ice cream treat when he plunged into a pond — cell phone and wallet in his pockets — to save a young girl from drowning. Oaks said that Littleton High School teachers, administrators and students would have done the same thing, and specifically told students: “You would have gone in that lake with your cell phone — which would be a good thing.”

“Jump in that lake — be that hero,” Oaks said. “I am so proud to be your principal.”
