"It is exciting for our school system, and specifically, Crestview High School to receive this notoriety,” said CHS Principal Dave Bowen. “However, it takes a community to raise a child and assist in his or her finding success. We thank our students, our parents, our staff and teachers, and again, our community for the investment and the pride that they have in our school."
