RANGELY | Rangely High School would like to thank and congratulate the August students of the month, Phalon Osborn and Grady Nielsen. Phalon Osborn is the daughter of Josh and Suanne Anderson. She is a senior this year at RHS, and is planning to attend either University of Wyoming majoring in family law, or Baylor University majoring in anesthesiology. Throughout high school she has been active in basketball, soccer, track, cross country, FFA, NHS, student council, football manager and FBLA. Throughout all of these activities she has always represented RHS with the most school spirit, integrity and dedication. This has also played through in her dedication to FBLA as this year she is serving as one of the Colorado State FBLA officers. This year she is the director of social media for the youth organization. This has kept her on the road to state meetings, to national convention this last summer and in planning upcoming state FBLA events. In doing this, she is a great person, student and leader within the school and the state FBLA organization. Congratulations to Phalon Osborn.
The other August student of the month for Rangely High School is Grady Nielsen. Grady plans to attend either WCCO or Intellitec, both in Grand Junction. He will be majoring in automotive technology. Grady has always been an active student and athlete. He has been involved in football, basketball, wrestling, baseball, FFA and NHS. His leadership skills are what sets him apart. This year he is one of the football captains, and will lead teams throughout the winter and spring sports as well. These are great, but one of the most influential things that Grady has done has been his summer time leadership. He took it upon his shoulders to help encourage the younger athletes and students to come in for summer weight lifting, open fields and gyms, and any other activities that were going on. He would pick them up or drop them off, he would help encourage them throughout their workouts, and he visited with multiple students about being active and involved in the school. It takes a pretty special person to have this drive and passion with other students. Congratulations to Grady Nielsen.
