Jill and Dave Ruppel: Hearts full of gratitude
June 2, 2014
Our third child is graduating from Steamboat Springs High School on Saturday. Following in her siblings' footsteps, our daughter will head off to college in July. She is prepared. She is excited for the next chapter of her life. She is confident in her ability to face the challenges that life will throw at her.
My husband and I want to thank all the Steamboat Springs School District staff and teachers from elementary through high school who have committed themselves to making a difference in the lives of our youth on a daily basis. These dedicated people work on after the last bell and volunteer to mentor our children beyond the classroom.
Many of our students are moving on to actively influence the world because they have been challenged to seek out opportunities to lead and to serve others. We are confident the part these professionals have played in our children's lives will not be one forgotten.
We want to thank the SSSD staff and teachers for their ongoing contributions in educating the minds and bodies of our children. Our hearts are full of gratitude.
