Erie High School

Hogan Warlock
Engineering and Music Performance, University of Colorado Boulder

How has your school’s focus program prepared you for postsecondary success?
I was in the inaugural class of the Erie Academy of Engineering and Aerospace, which in its short 4 years has made huge strides in expansion and has had much success with gaining recognition. More specifically, it has inspired and taught me about being an engineer, which I am now prepared to become by majoring in Engineering at CU Boulder next year.


Frederick High School

Trinity Lyles
Business Management, Front Range Community College

What's a favorite memory from your time at St. Vrain?
My favorite memory with St. Vrain was meeting up with other schools and competing at competition with our bands. Yes, it was a competition, but it was the best seeing all the school colors and seeing all the band kids from different schools socialize and interact with one another. Our school colors may divide us, but at events like this, we got the opportunity to mix and be not multiple schools, but just one whole.


Longmont High School

Oakley Dehning
Business Analytics and Applied Mathematics

What's a favorite memory from your time at St. Vrain?
Bringing home the state basketball championship to our school and community gave myself and my teammates so much pride. There has never been another moment quite like it in my life.

 

 


Lyons High School

Marin Neuhard
Psychology, University of Oregon

What advice would you give to students entering high school next year?
Never shy away from who you are and what you love. It is so easy to fall in to the majority and hide, but you can not grow until you’ve embraced yourself. When faced with a intimidating task, ask yourself if this is something you would regret missing out on in the future and take it on with pride and confidence.

 

 


Mead High School

McKenzie (Macks) Henson
Linguistics, Carleton College

What makes your high school unique?
Mead is unique not only in its academics, but in its arts, as well. Students have the opportunity to earn the AP Capstone seal on their diplomas, and next year they will have a chance to earn the Seal of Biliteracy; additionally, Mead is one of the few schools to partake in the Energy Academy program. With regards to the arts, Mead’s orchestras regularly compete in the Cañon City Blossom Festival, while the Drama Department regularly hosts plays and musicals each year.
 


Niwot High School

Evan Roberts
Undecided, Yale University

Why should a student want to attend your high school
At Niwot, it is easy for everyone to find their place. There are so many opportunities for academic challenge as well as extracurriculars in every field imaginable. With so many communities and groups at Niwot, it is a very welcoming place.

 

 

 


Olde Columbine High School

Lesley Stephanie Martinez-Rodriguez
Dental Hygienest, Front Range Community College

What advice would you give to students entering high school next year?
Advice that I would give to students entering high school is to do the best that you can in school. It’s important to be open-minded and to challenge yourself through advanced coursework. I would remind students to try new things, and get to know other people. I would encourage students to set goals and have high standards for yourself.
 


Silver Creek High School

Colleen Tyrrell
Mechanical Engineering, Colorado School of Mines

How has your school’s focus program prepared you for postsecondary success?
The Silver Creek Leadership Academy has provided me with so many different useful life tools like presentation skills, patience, communication skills, independence, teamwork skills, and many many more. I now feel comfortable engaging with people of higher positions and feel confident in a professional environment.
 


Skyline High School

Kenneth Frederick
International Affairs or Journalism, Colorado State University

What makes your high school unique?

APEX Homeschool Program

Rebecca (Becca) Hyde
BFA Musical Theatre and Biology, West Virginia University

How has your school’s focus program prepared you for postsecondary success?
APEX allowed me to take classes that I couldn’t take on my own with my homeschool curriculum. These classes such as Musical Theatre and Choir made me fall in love with performing which is now what I will be training to do in college.
