Each spring, the School District 51 superintendent honors graduating high school seniors who have achieved a 4.0 cumulative GPA or better over the course of their four years in high school. This program was designed to recognize the outstanding students in School District 51. This year, 144 students will be recognized for achieving such an honor.
The keynote speaker for this year’s luncheon was Tor Hayward, founder, president, and CEO of Major Mortgage, and a graduate of Fruita Monument High School. Each student who achieved this significant honor received a plaque at the luncheon.
