LA VETA, Colo. (KKTV) - As the superintendent put it, "17 top-notch young ladies" are getting set to graduate from one Colorado school. No boys were honored at this year's ceremony for La Veta High School, marking a unique graduation!
There are a number of reasons each senior has made their family and their community proud. Three of the soon-to-be grads have committed to playing college volleyball. The school had never qualified for the state volleyball tournament until 2007, and this year's seniors made appearances in the state tournament four consecutive seasons. The squad placed second in 2018 and nabbed a spot in the final four in 2019.
La Veta High School also won the Colorado Succeeds Transformational Impact Award last fall and they were cited with the College Success Award from GreatSchools.org.
One of the seniors won the 200-meter dash in track last year, missing out on her chance to cross the finish line first again this season due to the pandemic.
Something these seniors won't miss out on is the amount of pride their community has for them! All 17 were honored at a graduation ceremony this Saturday, May 23, online. You can watch the ceremony below:
