State Education Director Presents Award To JHHS

Wyoming Department of Education Director Rich Crandall officially presented Jackson Hole High School with the Blue Ribbon Schools award during a special in-school ceremony Monday morning.  Crandall told the students and teachers that as he took his position as Director a couple months ago, he saw that Jackson Hole High School stood out among the state’s schools.  He explained to the students that the wealth of opportunities was the reason.  He told the students, “There are a thousand doors opened for you in the future.  Here at Jackson Hole High School there is a whole wall…with a thousand keys on it.”  He says he listened to several students telling of teachers who “pushed them”  to learn and that, he says is when you start collecting those “keys.”  He added, “By the time you graduate from Jackson Hole High School, as opposed to many high schools in the United States, you’ve got that big old custodian style of key ring; because you literally have the opportunity to collect all one thousand keys if you want to.  Not every kid in America can say that about their high school!”  Crandall pointed out that the status of Blue Ribbon School tells colleges to which students apply, that the school has prepared them for post-secondary education extremely well.  Jackson Hole High School will be formally recognized next fall in Washington DC and presented with another plaque and a flag to display signifying its national status.  In order for a school to be selected, that school submits a 100-page document providing documentation on every student’s performance.

  • Shouldn’t my dogs be KEEPING their hair now? - November 21, 2014
    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her. Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
