The commencement ceremony featured opportunities for student leadership. Graduating seniors Ella Peters and Jerry Alexander provided speeches reflecting on their education, and Jason Paivey provided a special welcome greeting. School Board members Kacy Deschene, Erin Heers-McArdle and Nicole Hayes joined Superintendent David Law and associate superintendent for secondary schools, Dr. Josh Delich, in congratulating the students on their accomplishments. 

It was the final graduation ceremony for Principal Nancy Chave, who is retiring at the end of the school year. Current AHRHS Assistant Principal Heather Forse will serve as principal starting next year.

Located in Coon Rapids and serving the entire district, AHRHS provides a smaller high school setting and personalized instruction to guide students toward graduation.
