Operation Graduation celebrates students

Once again on the night of graduation, Dolores High School seniors were treated to a very successful all night Operation Graduation 2012 party held at the Cortez Recreation Center. For the 15th year, Dolores seniors had a safe place to spend graduation night, playing games, eating great food, enjoying each otherís company, and, of course, winning many really cool prizes.

All of this was due to the very generous giving of many businesses and individuals from Dolores, Cortez, Mancos and beyond. A big thank you also goes to the Dolores School District, Dolores Booster Club and the town of Dolores for their help in making this yet another successful Operation Graduation. I want to thank Brenda and Chris Belt, Doug Sparks, Anita Rodgers, Laurie McGuire, Kim Hamilton, Jamie and Chris Phelps, Katrina McGee, and all the other parents of seniors that contributed to this yearís Operation Graduation. The night was a big success and we had 94 percent of the seniors attend the party.

What a nice way to celebrate the culmination of all the years of hard work the students put towards their graduation.

Thanks to all,

Steve Maxwell
