High school graduation tops today’s Valley Voice

Here it is, as promised - the annual graduation section of the Valley Voice. We've got lists of every graduating senior at schools in the Spokane Valley area, plus a few schools in other areas that also draw students from the Valley. Reporters and correspondents have written stories profiling one notable student from each high school. Some of these teens have really exceptional stories to tell. I can't link to them all, but here's a sampling.

University High School senior Andrew Croneberger is a star student, athlete, musican and composer. He also has Asperger's syndrome. Valley Christian School senior Crystal Heden was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 4, but she hasn't let that slow her down. Central Valley High School senior Gaven Deyarmin bears the scars from two near death experiences, but he still managed to excell at basketball, football and track while also bringing home a 3.92 grade-point average. East Valley High School senior Jake Foust already has his own business. Contract Based Education senior Jamal Davis is back on track after being side tracked by alcohol, drugs and some time in jail.  

There are many more great seniors to read about. See them all on the Voices page here.

Saturday’s highlights

Saturday's Valley Voice highlights are a day late this week because of the holiday, but there are still some good stories to check out. Reporter Lisa Leinberger visted with a group of quilters at Valley Assembly of God Church. They make quilts for cancer patients and have made 700 quilts in five years.

The Spokane Valley Hearing Examiner has ruled that the developer of a proposed Fourth Avenue Townhomes project near Shelley Lake must go back to the drawing board until the proposal complies with a development agreement that was negotiated with the city. That decision has relieved neighbors who complained about the plan and said it violated the agreement.

There are also some tips on how to avoid locking your kids inside the car, which seems to be a particular issue for Spokane Valley residents. The fire department usually responds at least once a week to a report of a child locked inside a car, sometimes more. Correspondent Steve Christilaw has a story about Central Valley High School senior Gaven Deyarmin, who plays football and basketball for the school.
