International Baccalaureate students aim to return Fravert Reservoir to its former glory

Big picture

Four Rifle High School students organized a day of cleaning to help restore the reservoir as a part of their project for the program.

The Fravert Reservoir is both a special place and a neglected place. While it’s a popular spot for the community to go running, shooting and birdwatching, it’s also a spot that’s been subjected to littering and illegal dumping. Bearing witness to this combination of appreciation and abuse during their time at Rifle High School, seniors Jocelyn Abbott, Karisa Coombs, Katelyn Mentink, and Lily McCann-Klausz have taken it upon themselves to help reconcile the disconnect.

As a part of their CAS project for the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, the students have incorporated creativity, activity and service (CAS) into a day of cleaning that they hope will spark positive change around the reservoir and throughout the community. These environmental stewards have a shared goal of giving back to the place that’s given them and their peers so much over the years.

Congratulations CRHS Senior Joseph Thompson on earning a Daniels Scholarship

Doors have opened for Joseph Thompson.


“It really does just give me lots of options school wise,” he said of receiving the Daniels Scholarship. “I thought that was really awesome, that I can kind of make a decision based solely on where I want to go, instead of how much it costs to where I want to go.”


Thompson, who moved to New Castle when he was 8 years old, went to Kathryn Senor Elementary School and later Riverside Middle School.
