Inglewood Unified School District congratulates the hundreds of seniors who crossed the stage on Thursday, June 18 at Los Angeles Southwest College.
Members of the IUSD Class of 2015 have made the District proud, and will soon move on to colleges and universities across the country.
With the sun shining for all three graduation ceremonies, valedictorians and salutatorians addressed their classmates, recalling challenges and triumphs and hopes for the future, while others performed songs and the spoken word.
Inglewood High students heard from the school’s Gates-Millennium Scholar, Jose Cervantes, who was awarded a good-through-graduation scholarship to pursue an undergraduate degree at the college or university of his choice.
Cervantes will attend UCLA, while other IUSD grads are headed to Loyola Marymount University, Howard University, Xavier University, Tuskegee University, Cornell University, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, CSU Long Beach, CSU Dominguez Hills, CSU Chico, CSU Northridge, Mt. St. Mary’s University, Smith College and many more.
Special speakers during the day included Inglewood Mayor James Butts and newly elected IUSD Advisory Board member Dr. D’Artagnan Scorza, a Morningside High School alum.
The Southwest College stadium was filled with graduates and their proud family members, friends, teachers, school administrators and District leaders.
Congratulations to the IUSD Class of 2015!
