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.

  • Towing with a half-ton - July 31, 2014
    I’ve been hauling horses with either a three-quarter-ton or a one-ton truck for about the past 10 years, and I’ve gotten kind of spoiled by the towing power of those old Ford diesels. Even with a heavy load cruising along behind me, I’d sometimes forget I was pulling a trailer. But when the F-350 started […]
