(Riverton, WY) – During the Fremont County District 25 school board meeting Tuesday night the Frontier Academy graduated three students. Sadi Aragon, Skyler Johnston, and Maya Shelley all received high school diplomas before a packed crowd of people.
The group had been spending their Fall semester volunteering pulling weeds around Riverton, helping take care of dogs at PAWS for Life, and cleaning up graffiti on the side of local businesses as well as completing coursework.
The Frontier Academy is an accredited and free high school that accommodates students looking for a way to graduate.
“The mascot is appropriate. You have been through a lot and we just want to say we are so proud,” newly instated School Board chairwoman Lynette Jeffres said during the ceremony. The Academy’s mascot is a phoenix.
