Friday night lights up with RHS graduation

By Brad Klump/The Johnstown Breeze

Friday night, Roosevelt High School held its graduation in the Bank of Colorado Arena, located at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley.

The school moved the event there due to inclement weather, leaving the Rough Riders’ Peterson Field empty and dark on an evening when it was planned to be the site of the celebrated ceremony.

Although the graduation did not take place under the familiar lights of the high school’s football field, the same buzz and energy was felt in the arena, as the Class of 2015 showed one last time that it was them who made the memories of high school as bright as the lights.

JOHNSTOWN – The Grays are coming! The Grays are coming!

The Greeley Grays collegiate baseball team is coming to Johnstown and Nelson Farm Park for their two-month season.

While many of the players on the University of Northern Colorado softball team came from around the nation, and some from around the globe, one is from right here in Johnstown.

Senior third baseman Kaitlin Flynn attended Roosevelt High School, lettering in both softball and basketball all four years, as well as being on the school’s honor roll every year. When she wasn’t in school over the summer, Flynn kept herself busy playing softball for Triple Crown Sports.

Nelson and Rough Rider Field aren’t going to be the same without coach Alan Gibson. 

Gibson, who stepped away as head softball coach in February, has resigned as spring and summer baseball coach after 13 years. 

In a phone interview Tuesday, Gibson said his decision was a recent one. 

“It’s something that I didn’t really want to do. Something I wasn’t forced to do. But something I felt it necessary to do,” he said.

Kidd: 'Time to move on to other issues we were elected to do for the citizens'

Report cites concerns about "lack of transparency" in regard to vote to hire new building inspection company

MILLIKEN – After deliberation on whether to postpone findings on a potential conflict of interest between Trustee Ken Kidd and town building inspection company ProCode owner Jonathan Gesick, trustees voted 5-1 last week that Kidd didn’t have a direct financial conflict of interest.

Trustee Linda Beck voted no.  

Kidd recused himself from the discussion and vote at the May 13 board of trustees meeting. He was not in the room when trustees discussed the issue. 

RHS graduation moved

The Johnstown Breeze

While not even the weather can likely dampen the enthusiasm and excitement of Friday's Roosevelt High School commencement, it has necessitated a location change.

RHS Principal Trevor Long announced Wednesday morning graduation ceremonies will now be held at 7 p.m. Friday at Butler-Hancock Gymnasium on the University of Northern Colorado campus in Greeley.

"We talked with the senior class and made the decision this morning," Long said. "With our saturated field, and the forecast at 60 percent for rain, we needed to make the change. We wanted to play it safe and make sure everyone has a warm, dry seat."
