Sun Valley Community School graduation

Family and friends gather in the Sun Valley Pavilion on Sunday, June 5, for the Sun Valley Community School’s 2022 Commencement.

The Sun Valley Community School sent off its Class of 2022 on Sunday with a ceremony at the Sun Valley Pavilion and some wise words from Olympic snowboarder—and 2013 graduate—Chase Josey.

Josey delivered the commencement address to the 41 graduates, drawing on lessons from his career, which led him to a second Olympic halfpipe appearance this year in Beijing. 

"If you're not falling, you're not trying hard enough," he said. "Failure can be one of the most important building blocks in life. There's no wrong time to use that as a lesson to get better.
