Cherry Creek Schools students honored as Aurora Scholars

To the cheers and applause of family and friends, 178 students from the Cherry Creek School District’s Aurora schools were honored as “Aurora Scholars” during presentations on April 28 at Cherokee Trail High School and April 29 at Hinkley High School. The Cherry Creek Schools students, along with students from Aurora Public Schools, were recognized by officials from the City of Aurora and their schools and districts, for their academic achievements and for contributing to their school and community.

Zipporah Richardson, Mayor Hogan, brother Jeremiah Green.jpg“You are the future leaders of the city of Aurora,” said Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan as he congratulated the scholars.

Cherry Creek Schools Superintendent Dr. Harry Bull encouraged the students to continue to pursue academic excellence.

“You stepped up and you performed at a level higher than your peers and that’s really important,” Bull said. “Remember that you are a scholar and continue to perform to that level.

The Aurora Scholars program was founded by former Aurora City Councilman Larry Beer, who wanted to honor Aurora’s high-achieving students in Cherry Creek Schools, Aurora Public Schools and Aurora’s private and parochial schools.

Students had to be nominated for the honor by one of their teachers. One student from each grade level was selected from each elementary, middle and high school in Aurora.

Scholar Kyndall Hadley, a freshman at Smoky Hill High School, said it was an honor to be recognized.

“It means I’m a good role model and a good example. It shows that I have the right qualities to be a leader in my community,” Hadley said.

Congratulations to all of the Cherry Creek School District’s Aurora Scholars!
