May 26, 2013 - By Eric Blom, Staff WriterArapaho Charter High School's graduation Tuesday was as much the end of an era for the five graduates as it was for retiring principal Mel Miller. Nearly 100 family members, faculty and other students filled the gym at Arapaho School to celebrate the seniors' accomplishments.
Constance Toni Hebah, Katlynn Elizabeth Hutchinson, Marvin Dean Oldman and Anthony Paul Terran received their diplomas Tuesday. Kelsie Kay Brown also graduated but could not attend the ceremony.
In his keynote speech, Miller said he has taught for 38 years but will remember how the 2013 graduating class at Arapaho Charter matured under his tutelage.
"All the staff had one goal: bring you forth to adulthood," he said. "We will know our success by what kind of adults you become."
Miller pointed out the example of student of the year Terran, who completed several college classes while attending Arapaho Charter.
Senior class speaker Hebah said she also will remember her senior year.
"The school year has been full of exciting and memorable times," she said.
