Sixteen BFHS grads earning more than high school diplomas

May 18, 2023

Sixteen of the just over 100 Bonners Ferry High School graduates of the Class of 2023 will earn more than just their high school diplomas when they cross the field and shift the tassel on their mortarboard from right to left on Saturday, June 3, nine will also earn Career and Technical Education (CTE) diplomas and seven will earn associate of arts degrees through the North Idaho College dual credit program.

Graduating with NIC general studies degrees are Jaden Byars, Jeneva Dredge, Thomas Hubbell, Kaylee McCabe and Cecilia Roemer, Emma Lucas graduate with her AA in social work and Leah Moellmer with her AA in modern languages.

The 2021 Idaho State Legislature created the CTE diploma to acknowledge how CTE programs enhance students' high school experience and prepare them for the demands of today's employers.

"The diploma is an opportunity for students to explore high-skill, high-demand occupations in Idaho and earn college credit while still in high school," said Dr. Clay Long, state administrator for the Idaho Division of Career Technical Education. "In the process, they earn employer-recognized certifications, develop technical and employability skills, demonstrate college and career readiness, and enter the world confident in their ability to meet their employer's needs."

Earning CTE Welding and cabinet making and millwork diplomas are Braden Baisden, Timothy Fulton, Marcus Regehr, Seth Rice and Bryce Rosequist, welding diplomas are going to Josh Piunkerton and Austin Trtabucco and earning diplomas in horticulture are Trew Lammers and Cassidy Underhill.
