Today’s highlights

While it is not quite Friday yet, it is time for some highlights from today's Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has a story on Valley Christian School moving to a four day school week in the fall. Fridays will become a day with optional extra programs that students can sign up for at no extra charge.

The congregation of the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection had a work day Sunday to start building 20 new raised garden beds that will be available to the community. The church is also taking steps to revive an old orchard behind the church that has been neglected for decades.

Valleyfest was one of several organizations to recently receive funding from the Spokane Parks Foundation. Reporter Pia Hallenger has the story here. Lisa also has a story on the final play of the year at Central Valley High School, “The Outsiders.” 

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.
