Class of 2014 earns $54 million in scholarships

​Congratulations to the 3,979 students who graduated this month from the Cherry Creek School District’s six traditional high schools – Cherokee Trail, Cherry Creek, Eaglecrest, Grandview, Overland and Smoky Hill – and our alternative high school, Endeavor Academy. These students have already made their mark in the world, academically, athletically, artistically and philanthropically, but the best is yet to come!

Members of the Class of 2014 took more than 9,900 Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate classes during their high school careers. They won team or individual state championships in a myriad of sports and 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 helping others through community service. For example, they raised thousands of dollars and volunteered thousands of hours for organizations including the Make A Wish Foundation, Children’s Hopsital, Food Bank of the Rockies, the Bonfils Blood Center, the Denver Dumb Friends League, and many more.

Congratulations to the Class of 2014!
