Senior Hilltoppers have been busy this week practicing their hat toss.
Two hundred and fifty-three Los Alamos High School students are scheduled to receive their diploma at 9 a.m. Saturday in Griffith Gym, to mark the end of their high school careers.
“The minute I get my diploma my heart will be completely full – I’m going to be jumping up and down,” LAHS senior Craig Girrens said. “It took a little while to sink in, but I’m trying to make the best out of every moment.”
Girrens said that although his family, the local community, and his friends have all supported him the past four years, he is glad to finally leave “the shell of Los Alamos” and venture out on his own.
“They tell you now you’re completely independent, it’s up to you to apply what you’ve learned from your parents and the community that you’ve been raised in,” he said. “You take all that in and you try to make it on your own. I feel pretty prepared going out and I can’t wait.”
Currently, Girrens is spending most of his time with his friends and family, making the most of his time before he departs to Colorado State University to continue his education.
