Castle View grads poised for success

Posted

They honored their retiring teachers, the graduating seniors entering the military, and took a moment of celebration rather than a moment of silence for the community members they'd lost in the past year - including senior Kyra Connolly, who died in a 2016 car accident.

They also shared their definition of success, naming examples such as "determination," "happiness," "selflessness" and "making the world a better place."

Castle View High School held its 2017 graduation commencement ceremony at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre on May 17, where its seniors moved their tassels and left with diplomas in hand and smiles on their faces.

Principal Rex Corr had three main messages for the soon-to-be alumni during the ceremony.

First, he told seniors he hopes they can treasure the people in their lives, and value the relationships they have, reminding them to put down their phones. Second, he told seniors he hopes they will know the joy of hard work in life.

"Find that thing you are passionate about and throw yourself at it," he said.

And third, Corr told his seniors not to fear failure, and to appreciate it for the lessons it provides on their way to success.

"I wish for you great success and great failure," he said.

Mostly, Corr said: "I wish you all the best."
