On Friday, January 19th, WHS celebrated the high school graduation of Alexis. Congratulations Alexis! Alexis graduated from CFC School on January 19, 2018, and she demonstrated with her educational success she was able to think critically and to learn the material thoroughly. She was dedicated to working hard on her classes. Her positive character was displayed during her graduation speech when she gave gratitude to each of the following teachers and WCARE leaders who helped her along the way. In her graduation speech, she said, “While I was here I met a teacher named Mrs. Diegel, she gave me the hope for college. She was so supportive of me in my education, I didn’t think anyone could be that excited for someone else to graduate. It was partly because of her that I didn’t give up on school, the other half was that going to college was my only option to get something better for myself, something worth having.”
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
