Congratulations to April’s Student of the Month, Tyler Fief. Tyler, a Senior, has shown a huge improvement during his last quarter of high school. All of this has been done working a part time job for the Riley Café. After high school, Tyler will be serving our country after he enlisted in the Army in September. Ms. Hopson said it best, “I am incredibly proud of Tyler for realizing where he needs to improve and making those adjustments.” A lesson we can all respect and possibly implement in our own lives. Go Falcons!

Congratulations to your RCHS Student of the Month for March, Anthony “AJ” Blomberg! AJ, Sophomore, has a current simple GPA of 3.0 and has earned a cumulative weighted GPA of 3.54 during his high school career. Due to nearly 50 surgeries, AJ has not been able to participate in as many extracurricular activities he would like. However, he has been a valuable member of our football team and looks to continue building upon that involvement over the next couple of years! There are no excuses with AJ, only results, positivity, and a great effort. He is a perfect example of what an intrinsic drive, resilient mind, and huge heart can accomplish! Go Falcons!
