Governor Says Education Key to Fulfilling Dreams

Education is the key to fulfilling dreams. This was the message passed on by Wyoming Governor Matt Mead, recently, to the students, parents and staff of Big Horn High School, in celebration of the school’s national recognition.

The school was named to the Top 500 list in Newsweek magazine and MSN.com chose Big Horn as the top high school in the state.

He went on to encourage the students to take a moment to reflect on what it takes to achieve success, stressing the importance of community support.

So, he said, in that moment of gathering for a few minutes, he wanted everyone to think about the thousands of hours of extra work and care it took by the students, teachers, administration and entire community to reach this point of excellence. And even though they are already an elite school, he said, he had great confidence they would reach an even higher point by sticking with this year’s motto, which is, “raising the bar.”
