He did it!  David graduated on June 1, 2012 with high honors from Cottonwood High School!  David graduated in the top 10% of his class with a Diploma of Merit.  He has worked so hard the past four years and we are extremely proud of him.  This past year has been grueling as he chose to take honors and AP classes instead of taking it easy his senior year.  Because of the caliber of classes he has taken his entire four years, he will be able to receive the Utah Regent's Scholarship, which was implemented when David was a freshman and his class is the first class to be eligible.  His hard work will also pay off in what he has learned and the skills he has developed as he moves on to college.  He is graduating with three college classes completed, two of them college math classes.  David also played baseball for Cottonwood and learned the value of hard work and the reward of team work.  He has made wonderful friends that I hope will last a lifetime.  Because of his participation in baseball, we have also made some wonderful friends that we will cherish forever.  David had an amazing ride through high school, being active in all of the activities that were offered.  He was crowned Home Coming King and made numerous new friends along the way.  I am so looking forward to his adventure for him when he moves away in the Fall and will attend Utah Valley University and will live close to campus.  We will miss him like crazy, but know we can visit him any time!  I know he will continue to accomplish great things and make us proud.  He is an amazing boy and we love him so much!
