STANFORD - Seventy-three graduating seniors of Fort Logan High School received diplomas Wednesday night among pomp and circumstance.

But leaving school for the last time might be a little more difficult than some had thought, said students.

"(It will be) really hard. I'm going to miss it a lot," said Fallon West, before speaking at the ceremony. "At first, I was excited to be done, but then it sunk in that I'm finished with school. It will be hard to not come back."

Lessons at Fort Logan went beyond the perfunctory basics, said student speaker Emily Akers. "I learned that life is tough, and you don't always get what you want. You have to work for what you want to get."

"If you work hard, it pays off in the end, even if sometimes things get bad and you don't remember they can get better," said D.J. McConnell, also chosen to speak at the ceremony. The three student speakers were chosen based on academic performance.


Principal Scott Montgomery said the Class of 2004 was one of the best the school has seen, with "better attendance, yearly performance, and their dedication to getting their diploma."

Montgomery also said the school wouldn't be able to celebrate graduation successes without the support of the school board, superintendent and educators alike.
