Central High School

Central High School Class of 2017 | Reilly

They are graduating faster than I can produce the blog posts!  I couldn't forget Miss Reilly who walked with Central High School's Class of 2017 yesterday morning!  I've said it before but I'll say it again, I am so lucky to get to work with such a great group of Seniors year after year.  Reilly has really been one of my favorites this season because she is such a hard worker and an inspiration to her peers.  She has already turned her tassel and tossed her cap in the air and this fall she is headed to Colorado Mesa University to study Psychology.  She is excited for her college adventures but she is going to miss her friends and the nights spent in the student section at the volleyball and basketball games!  She even admits that she will miss the teachers that she grew close to during her 4 years of high school.  Awwwww, Reilly girl, you are such a sweetheart!  I can't wait to see and hear about all the fun you are going to have at CMU!

Central High School | Briana

I'm not sure if she tossed that beautifully decorated hat into the air but this girl graduated earlier today from Central High School!  Briana is so amazing!  Seriously, I can't think of a better word to describe her!  I have gotten to know Briana over the past year as a member of my model team and she is so sweet I wish I could keep her around forever!  She has worked so hard to get where she's going and this fall she is headed to the University of Colorado Boulder to study Chemical Engineering.  She earned a plethora of scholarships to help her fulfill her dreams including the University of Colorado Boulder Outstanding Student Award, the Grand Valley Power Scholarship and the CMU Distinguished scholars award... just to name a few.

When I asked Briana if there was anything I should share with the world on her behalf, she wanted to send a HUGE thank you to her parents for supporting her throughout the years and helping her to become the person she is today!  She even thanked ME, oh my gosh what a doll she is!  Thanks Briana!!  You are the greatest!!

I wish you all the best and I can't wait to follow your journey!

Class of 2017 Street Team | Now is your time to shine!

Class of 2017 Street Team

Let's get this party started!

I am jumping the gun a bit earlier this year because I'm just too excited to get to work with my next group of high school seniors!  I am also adding quite a few new and exciting features to the CJP Street Team program which I will need the extra time for.  This next season is going to be even more EPIC than years past!

So, the time has come!  I am looking for high school JUNIORS who want to be a part of something exciting and different!  I am looking for YOU!  I NEED YOU on my STREET TEAM!

What does it take to be a Street Team member?  It requires YOU being YOU and sharing your experience with your friends.  Am I asking you to be a salesman for me?  Heck NO!  There are a few easy things you need to do from time to time, but they all come with benefits and rewards and the best part....dun, dun, dun....you can do it all from your phone!  So worth it!

Your Senior year should be an experience.  Being a part of the #cjpstreetteam is an experience that you won't forget!

So let's be awesomesauce, together!
