In December we were blessed to have six former Ridgeview students return to school to talk to our current students about their experiences in college, the work force, and the military. It was great to hear about all the wonderful things these students have accomplished since graduating from Ridgeview. We hope that listening to their stories will help inspire more of our students to keep striving towards their college and career goals. Thanks to Josh, Paige, Taylor, Arden, Wes, and Adam for taking time out of your busy lives to speak with our students!
