Wow...the graduation exercises were absolutely beautiful (just taking a break between activities with my favorite forum).
The graduates and faculty put on a very nice show...even the school's first principal (school opened in 1972) was present to address the graduates.
Other than being proud of my guy, I was truly impressed with the accomplishments of the graduates. Combined, over $4,000.000 dollars in scholarships were awarded to this class.
I'm very proud of this...and for good reason. These are "inner-city" kids who made a choice to rid themselves of the temptation to "go the other way". I mentioned earlier what these kids had to accomplish just to get to this level. That a majority of these kids were awarded scholarships and, as per the principal, over 85% are persuing higher education is amazing.
And finally...to all of my fellow AA members...thanks so much for your support.
