“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will become successful.“
This is the class motto by Eric Thomas chosen by the 2013 graduating class of Arapahoe High School. On Sunday, May 19th, at 2:00 p.m, the 25 members of the senior class donned their ceremonial cap and gowns and embarked on one of the first landmarks of their adult lives.
The program started with the processional of Elgar’s “Pomp and Circumstance” led by the Arapahoe High School Band under the baton of director Valerie Leising.
The welcome was given by Secondary Principal Daren Hatch who reminded the seniors “You have learned to compete and to lead. Don’t let today be the end of that. You must now compete and lead on the biggest stage—the stage of life.”

Tri-Basin NRD directors held a public hearing on forming the Odessa Improvement Project Area (IPA). The proposed IPA would alleviate flooded fields due to high groundwater levels and runoff from large rain events. The project would involve creating a drainage ditch that would divert water to the Platte River along S Road in Phelps County, which is one mile west of the Funk-Odessa Road. Following testimony from several landowners in the proposed area, directors voted to proceed with the next step in the process, an election in which landowners in the proposed area can vote for or against the project. The voting period will be open for 30 days. Directors will review the election results at their July board meeting.
