APS Summer Graduates to Receive Diplomas

Three ceremonies will be held at 1:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 29, at the National Hispanic Cultural Center

July 22, 2013

Two hundred fifty-two Albuquerque Public Schools students are expected to take part in commencement exercises on Monday, July 29, after having completed the requirements for their high school diplomas during summer school this year.

“I applaud these students and their families for having the perseverance to achieve their goal of receiving their high school diplomas,” said APS Superintendent Winston Brooks. “I know it’s not easy to stay motivated and stick to it.”

The graduates, including another 15 who earned their diplomas but have decided not to participate in Monday’s ceremonies, represent all 13 APS traditional high schools, three schools of choice and two charter schools.

There will be three ceremonies held in the Roy E. Disney Performing Arts Center at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, 1701 4th St. SW. Students from Albuquerque High, Atrisco Heritage Academy, Bataan Military Academy and Cibola High will graduate in ceremonies beginning at 1:30 p.m. Students from Del Norte High, the Early College Academy, Eldorado, Freedom, Highland, La Cueva, Manzano, the Native American Community Academy, New Futures High and School-on-Wheels will graduate beginning at 4:30 p.m. and students from Rio Grande, Sandia, Valley, Volcano Vista and West Mesa high schools graduate at 7:30 p.m.

Osvaldo Tablas, a graduate of Atrisco Heritage Academy, will present the commencement address during the 1:30 p.m. ceremony and Manuel Marquez, a graduate of the Early College Academy, will speak during the 4:30 p.m. ceremony.

Leah Gutierrez-Wier, who oversees summer school at the high school level, said that because of the large number of students finishing their requirements during the summer this year, the decision was made to have three ceremonies.
