Throughout high school he has been active in football and FFA. Hanvey has stepped up his junior and senior years and become a student any teacher can count on. He completes all of his school work and works hard to succeed. Hanvey is also willing to help any teacher or student when needed. Congratulations to both Wilkie and Hanvey.
Congratulations to Crimsen Blankenship and Sydney Cole for being the Rangely High School Students of the month for January. Blankenship plans to attend UCCS in Colorado Springs to study forensic science. She has been active in volleyball, choir and drama throughout her high school career. Blankenship has taken off with the life skills class and excelled this year. Not only has she begun to design and sew her own clothes, she has also stepped up and helped fellow students learn how to sew and work their sewing machines. Teacher Jimmie Mergelman has watched Blankenship excel and become a leader in this class. Sydney Cole has plans to attend CNCC and then transfer to CMU. He hopes to pursue a career in law enforcement. Besides this, Sydney has goals to play college basketball and to possibly travel to Europe to play professional basketball. The junior class takes on the concession stand and every year there’s a student who really steps up to help. This year it has been Cole. He has worked each week to restock the concession stand and make sure that it is ready to go for the next event. He has done all of this with no complaining and with a smile on his face. It is great to see students willing to step up and work to better their classes and the school. Congratulations to both Blankenship and Cole.
