A Cedaredge High School senior who graduated early to pursue her nursing career plans is Orchard City's student of the month for March.
Mikaylah Saenz graduated early last semester from CHS with a 3.8 grade point average. She is currently attending the University of Northern Colorado pursuing a degree in nursing.
Also in pursuit of her career in the health care field, Mikaylah earned her CNA license last semester.
She has also participated in the Explorer EMT program, volunteered with Delta Health and Wellness Center, and volunteered 60 hours with University Hospital in Denver.
Mikaylah's other activities include working as a manager at Aspen Trails and helping with private home care at night.
Thanks to the efforts of state Rep. Millie Hamner, House District 61, Colorado State University plans to re-open the Rogers Mesa research site.
The facility was taken out of operation in 2011, due to budget cuts throughout the CSU system.
