Central High School, the district’s continuation school, graduated 33 seniors at a June 3 ceremony on the school’s campus on Tilton Avenue.
Central High’s Student Speaker for the ceremony, Michael Fuentez, described the challenges he—like many of his classmates—faced throughout his first three years of high school, even before the Covid-19 pandemic started. He said Central was the first place where he felt welcome and supported during his high school career.
“The masks are off. Our future is whatever we want it to be,” Fuentez concluded. “We write the rules. We write the plan. If you have a plan to be someone (or) to do something, make that plan your destiny.”
