VALTS High School celebrates 500th graduate from the program

Posted: Updated:

Seven students from the Valley Alternative Learning Transitioning School in Gering celebrated a milestone today.

As a whole, they represented the 500th student to graduate the high school.
 
More than 50 family, friends and staff members gathered in the HARMS Center to congratulate the graduates.

VALTS High School principal George Schlothauer says each quarter a graduation is held. He says the school offers a strong and viable program for students looking to receive their last few credits.

The graduates say they are thankful for the high school allowing them to earn their remaining credits.
 
"That's all we need," said graduate Sadrick Munoz of Scottsbluff. "People to listen to our stories, because everybody has a story you know, it's helped me a lot. I wish I would've done things different in high school but coming here has helped me see my potential that I truly have."
 
Graduate Keely Gloria of Gering said the VALTS school has helped her to pursue a college degree. "My plans are to go into mortuary science and get my Bachelor's in that and then hopefully start my own business."

VALTS High School was established in 2007 representing three school districts at the time; Scottsbluff, Gering and Mitchell. Today, nine school districts are represented and a total of 504 students have graduated the school.
