Mitch Lukkonen started part-time with Wolf Creek three and half years ago. He decided Wolf Creek was a good fit for him, so he came full time. He passed all of his classes this year with good grades and graduated at the end of Term 2! He has dreams of going to school to be an interior designer.
CONGRATULATIONS to Caitlin Flaherty and Dylan Murphy
Caitlin Flaherty is an extremely hard-working student. She has had many setbacks, but perseveres. She is determined to graduate on time and has already applied and been accepted to both Century College and Anoka Ramsey Community College. Caitlin has always struggled in math but with the help of our awesome math team has been passing all of her courses and attending online tutoring sessions on a regular basis. Caitlin is always respectful and sweet.
This is Dylan Murphy‘s second year at Wolf Creek. Last year as an 11th grader, Dylan completed more credits than required. Dylan’s hard work will allow him to graduate early this year to focus on his post-secondary goals. Strategies that have helped Dylan succeed at Wolf Creek are: coming to campus every Tuesday and Thursday; working hard and checking in with teachers when questions arise.
