Coal Ridge High School

Coal Ridge HS | Santana

Coal Ridge HS Senior, Santana, is another who will graduate today with top honors in her class!  This 4 sport athlete received word not long ago that she is one of three at CR to be awarded the Daniels Scholarship!  For those who don't know, the Daniels Scholarship allows Santana to attend any college of her choice in the nation PAID IN FULL.  No doubt it took a lot of hard work, many essays and interviews to even be considered.  I personally think this is an incredible achievement for Tana and her parents must be over the moon with excitement!  

Congratulations, Santana!!  Go get em girl!!  

Coal Ridge High School | Class of 2018

Coal Ridge Titans | Samantha

Remember, I told you that the Coal Ridge Titans are graduating tomorrow!  That includes this lady Titan right here, Samantha!  I spent a good part of the winter watching this young lady on the basketball court and if you didn't get to see her play then you totally missed out!  I might be a little bit biased as basketball is my jam ;)  She is also an avid soccer athlete and her and her team had a good season this year as well.  If you see Sam out and about this summer then please congratulate her on her future endeavors!  She will be headed CMU this fall with a few of her fellow classmates. 

Congratulations, Sam!!

Coal Ridge Senior | Amethyst

The time has come to give a shout out to the Coal Ridge Seniors as Graduation day is quickly approaching!  I have had the pleasure of getting to know this girl right here and I have to tell you she is beautiful, sweet and so thoughtful.  She has had an incredible Senior year which included a trip to state with one of the top cheerleading teams on the Western Slope!  Props to Amethyst as she is headed to AZ this fall to attend the American Institute of Interior Design!  Woah!  Congrats, girlie!!  

Best of luck to you, Amethyst!

Coal Ridge Class of 2017 | Christian

Today is the day that the Coal Ridge Class of 2017 will walk together and say their goodbyes one last time.  Among those students is Christian whom I've gotten to know over the past year and I can tell you he is one funny guy!  Christian is headed to Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah this fall.  There he will earn his Bachelors in Biology.

Congratulations, Christian!!

Coal Ridge Class of 2017 | Madison

The Coal Ridge Class of 2017 is about to set free another incredible student!  Allow me to introduce to you Miss Madison!  Madie will graduate with her class mates on May 21st and this fall she is headed to Colorado Mesa University to obtain her Nursing degree!  Family and friends are so proud her and she's definitely earned all of the good fortune headed her way.  Madie has received a handful of scholarships to help her on her journey to success and among those scholarships awarded are:  CMU Distinguished Scholars (Full tuition), CMU First Generation, and the Glenwood Hot Springs Higher Education Scholarship.

I thoroughly enjoyed having Madie on my Team this year.  The very first time we met I was blown away by her infectious smile!  Seriously, this girl has a smile that you remember and it's so contagious.  Madie has held the position of Senior Class president throughout her final year as a Titan and one of the things she will miss the most is being able to coordinate all of the class and school events.  She will also greatly miss her peers and classmates.  (I'm going to miss you too, girl!)

Congratulations, Madison!

Coal Ridge High School Senior Photographer | Kylie

The end is near!  Well, the end of High School anyway.  Over the next couple of weeks I will be showcasing the 2017 graduates that I had the pleasure of working with over the past year.

Meet Kylie!  Kylie will soon graduate from Coal Ridge High School in Silt/New Castle, Colorado.  I have had the pleasure of getting to know Kylie quite well over the past few years, she even babysits for us on occasion.  She is the sweetest thing and I know that her future holds great things for her!

Kylie will graduate on May 21st and this fall she is headed to The University of Northern Colorado to study criminology and criminal justice.  She has been an active member of the Coal Ridge Cheer Team throughout high school and plans to continue that path through college by participating in the dance club.

Miss Kylie has the most incredible parents a kid could dream of being raised by and they are the one thing she will miss the most when she embarks on this new adventure.

To all upcoming Seniors, Kylie wants to leave you with a little advice:

"High School goes by too fast.  Don't take it for granted.  Enjoy it to the very fullest!"

Congratulations, Kylie!  We are all so excited to see you off on this wonderful journey!

Coal Ridge High School Class of 2017 | Carrie Johnson Photography

Meet the Coal Ridge HS Class of 2017, Carrie Johnson Photography Street Team!
Each year I gather a group of upcoming high school seniors who want to have fun and earn discounts towards their senior portraits by doing so!  This year I have had the privilege of working with two teams, one from GJ and one from Coal Ridge High School.  I've blogged about this group before because this is their second session with me, but they are so much Fun to work with and be around!
These kids help me to promote my business and most importantly they help spread the word to their peers that Senior Portraits are coming due this fall to the schools for yearbook submissions.  My street Team crew earns discounts towards their individual portrait sessions by sharing their images from their group mini sessions AND their peers also receive discounts for booking through Carrie Johnson Photography!
So, if you are a Senior in High School or know of a senior in high school, be sure to send them my way so they can get in on the awesome discounts!
Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram and Snap Chat (user carriejphotos).
