Photos: Life Skills, aka Last Chance High, graduates final class

Bid a bittersweet farewell to Life Skills, Denver's own last-chance high school. Last year, Denver Public Schools announced that Life Skills would close -- a decision backed by the state board of education. As such, the graduation ceremony that took place at the King Performing Arts Center on Friday will be the school's last. Nathan Federico's photos capture the emotional event. Check out a sampling below -- and also see our complete slide show, "Last-chance high school's final graduation."
