My Open Letter to Twin Peaks Charter School - Jared Polis


Dear Ms. Kathy DeMatteo:

I write to you regarding the recent graduation ceremonies at Twin Peaks Charter Academy. It was reported in the Daily Camera and national news sources that a student at Twin Peaks, where you serve as Board Chair, was not allowed to give his valedictorian speech at graduation and denied public recognition of his academic honors solely on the basis of his sexual orientation, which was contextually indicated in his proposed speech.

Evan's Full Graduation Speech


Evan Young was unable to give his speech at graduation, despite graduating with a 4.48 GPA as his class' Valedictorian. There has been a lot of discussion about this "controversial" speech, however we're all glad that now everyone can hear Evan's truth and know he didn't want anything more than to share a special moment with his graduating class of 30.

My Message to Twin Peaks Charter School


"My name is Evan Young. I was the valedictorian of Twin Peaks High School’s 2015 graduating class, but was not allowed to deliver my prepared speech at the graduation ceremony on May 16th.
