Congratulations to Hillary Robben, Smoky Hill High School’s 2013 Exceptional Volunteer of the Year.  During the past 10 years, Hillary has volunteered in Smoky Hill feeder schools as a PTCO hospitality volunteer, Area Coordinator for the 2012 3A & 3B Bond and Budget initiative, room parent, book fair coordinator, monster mash coordinator and community swim team board member.  Hillary shared, “volunteering has added so much to my life from interacting with all the great students to setting up functions for the staff who work tirelessly.  I have met some amazing teachers who have not only touched my children’s lives, but mine as well.”  Hillary is one of our most unselfish and dedicated volunteers and one of Smoky Hill’s biggest fans.  Thank you, Hillary Robben, for all you give to Smoky Hill and our community.

 Teachers of the Year

The Girls Soccer Program would like to recognize Candace Cephers (Class of 2013) for her remarkable soccer career at Smoky Hill.  Candace has been a 4 year letter winner and a two year Varsity captain (selected by peers and coaches).  She has been recognized as an All Centennial League player for 3 years and a first team All Colorado player her junior year.  Her senior year is off to a great start as she is leading the team in goals and leading the team in assists.  Not to mention being selected as Senior Class President.  Her leadership is felt by students, players, coaches and faculty.  Her contributions to our team will leave a legacy with our program which will continue to be felt long after her career has ended.  She recently signed her letter of intent to attend and play soccer for Division I Virginia Tech University.  We are so proud of Candace and wish her well as she continues her academic and athletic career.
