We want to highlight the incredible work of Adrian Olalde, a 2015 graduate and a current graduation coordinator for Adams City High School and Lester Arnold High School. Over the last few weeks, Adrian has teamed up with the Adams 14 Education Foundation to visit the presidents of Colorado Mesa University, Western Colorado University, and Adams State University to discuss new opportunities for Adams 14 graduates.
Adrian discussed how talented and resilient our students are while facing challenges when pursuing post-secondary education. All three universities were receptive to potentially forming new scholarships for the 2024 graduating class.
We find it inspiring that even after graduation, some of our students continue working to make Adams 14 a district of opportunity and excellence. Adrian’s story is a testament to the incredible work of our teachers, our community partners, and of course, the parents and guardians supporting our students every day. Thank you Adrian and the Adams 14 Education Foundation!
