The following is a statement submitted to the Congressional Record: 

Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, this week I have the honor of recognizing the first set of graduates from Anaconda Junior Senior High School’s Copper Academy, Alyssa Liedle-Caissey and Kai Bauer.

The Anaconda Junior Senior High School’s Copper Academy allows students to learn at a different pace and in a unique environment which includes the use of online programs that have visual demonstrations and explanations for different educational requirements.

Alyssa and Kai both took a chance participating in this program, and it paid off. They both graduated six months early!

I’m very proud of these two young Montanans for pushing themselves and showing the Anaconda community that this new, individualized program allows students to thrive. Congratulations to Alyssa and Kai on their graduation from the Copper Academy. I wish them the best of luck as they transition into the next steps of their lives.
