This coming year is Riverton High School’s 20th Anniversary of being opened to the general public.  For 20 years now Riverton High School has been educating Riverton’s finest and will soon bring more to it’s attention.

 

Riverton High School was established on February 28th, 1999.  Riverton high is a public high school in the city of Riverton, Utah.  It houses an average of nearly 2,500 students every year.

 

Since its founding Riverton has held some titles and lost others.  Riverton has made local recognition with its yearly charity fundraiser, “Silver Rush.”  Which helps a new charity every year around Christmas time. Last year it raised nearly 180,000 dollars for a local clinic that helped disabled children regain the ability to walk with therapy and braces.

 

Riverton has done one of these charity runs every year, with a lot of the community pitching in.  “Odd Jobs” has become a local treat. With many folks looking forward to a group of students coming to their doors and seeing what they can do to help out for a donation to the cause.

 

“I love odd jobs every year.  It is fun to do,” said Sean Christner, a student from Riverton High School.

 

At one point Riverton High held the title for the biggest high school in the valley back in 2009.  This later would change when Herriman high school would be constructed, which is Riverton High Schools unofficial Rival.

 

Since then the two schools have had a bitter rivalry between them.  George Hunter saying, “No matter what sport we play against Herriman it is always a good time, but it is better when we win.”

 

These past 20 years have really defined what Riverton High School is and what it stands for.  It has also shaped the student body which is known among the community as a very welcoming place.  Let us see what the next 20 years has to hold for Riverton High School.
