Springdale High School Graduation

Springdale High School held their commencement ceremony Saturday May 23, 2009 at Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville. Springdale High School graduated 426 students. The class garnered $2.1 million in scholarships and awards from colleges, community members, businesses, the military and other awards. Combined with Har-Ber High School, Springdale graduates received $5.3 million in scholarship offers, about $1 million more than last year. Seventeen Springdale High School graduates are candidates for the International Baccalaureate Diploma, which will be awarded later in the summer. The International Baccalaureate candidates have been offered $1 million in scholarships. Olympian April Steiner-Bennett was the keynote speaker at the graduation ceremony.


I'm originally from Colorado and I was introduced to photojournalism in high school while working on the school's yearbook. In 2011, I graduated from Colorado State University with degrees in journalism and art. This is my first “real-world” job, but while in college I worked for CSU's daily student newspaper and I interned for Denver-based Westword, the Colorado Eagles (ACHL hockey team) and Johnson and Wales University. I cherish analog photography and I like to shoot on a medium-format Mamyia RB67 whenever I can. While I'm not at work, I enjoy doing all sorts of physical activities, especially mud runs and Crossfit, and I love to bake desserts (which are usually consumed by my coworkers).
