190 APS Students to Receive Diplomas as a Result of Summer Courses

One hundred ninety Albuquerque Public Schools seniors fulfilled the requirements for receiving their high school diploma as a result of completing summer school courses this year.

Commencement exercises for summer school graduates were held Tuesday, July 26, in the Journal Theatre at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Some 161 graduates walked the line and received their diplomas during the ceremonies.

The number of summer school graduates has increased by about 50 students over last year.

“I think more students are realizing the value of a high school diploma and are persevering until they complete their high school education,” said APS Superintendent Winston Brooks. “We are proud that they chose to do so and join them and their families in celebrating their accomplishments.”

These summer school graduates come from 12 traditional APS high schools, five alternative high schools and one charter school.

Deondre Edmon, an Albuquerque High graduate, gave the commencement address before members of the APS Board of Education presented diplomas to the students.
