  • “This day signifies the end of your time at CPHS, but also the beginning of the rest of your life. I challenge you to take a moment to think back on your years as a student at CPHS. You began high school as a freshman in 2019 and a little over halfway through the school year, our world forever changed.  You survived and thrived during a period of uncertainty, fear, and worst of all, isolation. In the future when things get tough, look back on what you have had to overcome to stand before family and friends as a high school and college graduate. The tough situations you may encounter will more than likely be small in comparison to this period. You can and will persevere.” ~ Chad Barbour, Principal
