Class of 2012 earns $42 million in scholarships
Congratulations to the 3,585 students who will graduate next week from the Cherry Creek School District’s six high schools; Cherokee Trail, Cherry Creek, Eaglecrest, Grandview, Overland and Smoky Hill.  To date, these students have earned in excess of $42 million in scholarships and will attend colleges, universities, military academies, vocational and technical schools across the country.  Many will also enter the workforce.

The Class of 2012 includes 37 National Merit Finalists, four National Merit Hispanic Scholars, four National Achievement Scholars, one Presidential Scholar, 11 military academy appointees; 13 Daniel’s Fund Scholarship recipients and two Never Forgotten Fund Scholarship recipients.

During their high school years, members of the Class of 2012 excelled in academics, athletics, the arts and activities.  During their senior year, 2,070 students were enrolled in one or more Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate class.  Members of the Class of 2012 won team or individual state championships in 17 sports and many activities including DECA and Speech and Debate.  They earned All State honors in band, choir, jazz band and orchestra.  They also performed a wide variety of classic and contemporary plays and musicals.

But perhaps their greatest accomplishment is the fact that they made their school, community and world a better place by devoting tens of thousands of hours to helping others through community service.

Congratulations to the Class of 2012!
