Super School rally planned at tonight’s Summer of Music concert

Tonight’s Music in the Park will include a brief Super School promotional rally.

Glenwood Springs’ Yampah Mountain High School is a finalist for a $10 million grant spread over five years, with the winners to be announced Aug. 4.

“We’re going to record it and promote it on social media for one last-ditch effort to grab headlines for us to be considered for the $10 million next week,” said GlenX Super School project organizer Altai Chuluun.

“On stage at 7:30 p.m., I’ll introduce what we’re trying to accomplish, then get everyone to stand up and participate.”

Chuluun said he would urge those who are social media savvy to record the rallying cry and post it on social media with hashtags #rethinkhighschool and #xqamerica.

Yampah’s proposal, which is being developed in partnership with area business and civic leaders, as well as Colorado Mountain College, involves the creation of a campus-based, learn-work program that can help students follow their passions into college and the workforce.

The goal is also to develop a broader model using an online platform that can be shared with other high schools locally and abroad.
