The Ludlow Independent Schools Board of Education and Ludlow High School Principal Travis Caudill honored the graduation of a senior, Colin McDaniel, who earned his diploma despite personal hardship on the last day the district could grant a diploma, July 31.
“Colin went through a rough patch this year, and he grinded for us, and he found a way to see it through. With Colin we were able to get every single person, every single senior who started last year with us to finish the year with us, earning a diploma,” Caudill said.
Now that McDaniels has his diploma, he has enrolled in a carpentry apprenticeship program through Job Corps Cincinnati and the local trade union.
“He finished,” Caudill said. “He saw it through, just plugging away, and I’m really proud of him for doing that.”
