Summer Graduate Spotlights

 Congratulations to the class of 2011. These are the summer graduates.

Nogales High School


Benjamin Garcia

How do you feel about finally graduating: “There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
"I feel that this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong."
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What's right for you-just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.”
-Shel Silverstein
